Nothing Short of Amazing!
This week I got a call from a man who is not a member of our Church, but lives in Desoto County. During his call he shared with me what he was hearing about Trinity Baptist Church. He explained to me about the number of people sharing with him how God is working and how individuals are being saved. To that I say, “TO GOD BE THE GLORY!” We have truly had some incredible worship services over the last 8 to 10 weeks. We have watched as God has brought in Bro. Jon Rushing and his family, we have watched how God has brought in Bro. Brad Walker and his family - and one of the greatest blessings to me is not just that the Lord sent us such wonderful men of God, but that He has allowed such a sweet spirit and such unity to prevail in all things! I want to remind you that what we are seeing here, is not something that man can receive any accolades for, nor can we find joy in some plan set up by Trinity. The only thing we can attribute this work to is the amazing grace of our amazing God. I implore you, that as we begin this study of The Peace Maker - to keep your focus on the “log in your own eye” and to understand that the only person that can keep you (and me) from walking with God is you (ME)! The greatest obstacle in my walk with God is me and your greatest obstacle is you. May we continue to live out Phil. 2:14 “Do all things without complaining and disputing.” To be quite honest, this has been the most joyful time I have ever experienced in the ministry - in the last 8 months I can say that Hebrews 13:17 has been a reality in my life. It has been a true joy to “watch out for your souls” and I do so as it says, “with joy!” I love you and am blessed to be your Pastor!
