Each Sunday, I usually post a digested sermon by our Pastor Jerry. Today my post will be brief due to unfortunate circumstances.
On Saturday there was a wedding at our church and the sound system was changed for the wedding, but was not put back as it should have been. When our Sunday service began there was harsh feedback and regrettably I was not able to hear most of the sermon. Fortunately I had the bulletin.When it was time for the Joys, I had been impressed to share my story about the
As the service progressed, one of our ladies was asked to read a Scripture from the Psalms, and I was amazed because this particular selection was a confirmation to my sharing.
Psalm 65:9-10 New
King James Version (NKJV)
You visit the earth and water it,
You greatly enrich it;
river of God is full of water;
provide their grain,
so You have prepared it.
You water its ridges abundantly,
settle its furrows;
make it soft with showers,

Jesus came preaching the

occasion, He spoke about a man who went forth to sow good seed, but soon weeds
sprang up. Kingdom of God
The servants asked if they should pull up the weeds.
|The tares will be gathered and burnt|
His disciples asked Jesus to explain the story and briefly this is what He said.
1.The sower is the Son of Man (Jesus.)
2. The field is the world.
3. The good seeds are the sons of the kingdom.

5. The enemy is the devil.
6. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.
Pastor encouraged us to understand that good and evil happens to us all.
Tragedy, sickness, and death touch many of our lives, but we have a choice to decide the way we will turn. We are free to make good decisions and we are also free to choose the wrong path.
We are free to serve and trust God through it all. Our hope is in Christ Jesus.
