Welcome to Hope Talk
The lateness of the bulletin is my fault as I was in Amish Country the last 3 days and did not Internet access so could forward the notes. I am sorry but am thankful to Rachel for her patience and yours.
The last few days reminded me that the Church of God is broader than we think, more different than we expect, and truly glorifying God than most of us understand. Yes there are parts of the professed Church of God that are not displaying the grace of God they declare, even to the extent of preaching a false and futile gospel that does not good to those seeking the Lord. God is working in His earthly Church in a way that is truly delightful to see with a new generation of believers that are ardently seeking to serve the Lord and give up the deceptions of the world to enjoy the delights of our True and Gracious God. That is just the theme and declaration of Paul to the church at Thessalonica. Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you. And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do it to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints. (1Th.3:11-13) Rejoice in the Lord my friends for He is mightily doing His will in our world in many ways and individuals. How great and good our God is. That is our joy both now and in eternity. Begin to rejoice and take great joy in God’s sovereign and perfect will which He accomplishes every day both known to us and not. He is good, always and always good.
