The Macedonia Church had a great time on Friday celebrating with the Second Baptist Church and their Pastor, Rev. Andre Wells for his 5th Pastoral Anniversary services. I had the honor of preaching and I must say I love Pastor Appreciation services. For one, my Pastor was always just ruthless at services like this, pro-preacher, pro-pastor, run everything in the house and for two, if a fellow preacher/pastor can't be supportive of another Pastor on his day, I don't think much of that preacher. I may never be able to do anything to help you but I promise I won't do anything to hurt you.
We talked on Exodus 17: 8-16, "THEN CAME AMALEK", God blessed us and I found out later that everything the Lord directed me to say was what the Pastor needed the church to hear so God be praised because I had my safe sermon in my pocket but God wouldn't let me preach it.
Take Them Up vs. 9
Prop Them Up vs. 12
Hold Them Up vs. 12
Write It Up vs 14
Lift the Banner Up vs 15
He Saw Past His Painful Obstacles. (Blind, Beggar, Black-listed)
He Saw Past His Personal Opposition. (Be Quiet)
We had 4:00 Annual Usher Day at our church and I praise God for a wonderfully dedicated group of workers who are always on their post serving the Lord without much fan fare or hoopla but God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. I wanted them to know their Pastor loves them and honors them for their work to God and Macedonia. Pastor Lanell Williams from the Mt. Olive Church came over to preach this service for us and he preached out of I Corinthians 9: 24-27, "Don't Quit The Race". It was a good service for two reasons, God was pleased and it didn't take all day to have the service.
I am crawling under the bed and will check to see who my Niners drafted to go with the best wide receiver in this draft Michael Crabtree. Blessings on you,
Feel like crawling, but I am running in my Spirit,
