Sunday Summary

Today was a great Lord's Day at BBC! Our early morning prayer meeting was on fire. Our topic of prayer was peace this morning. We were few in number. but mighty in spirit! The Lord met us in the place on today. Sunday morning prayer meeting has done wonderful things for the spiritual health of our church! To God be the Glory!!

Morning worship was great today and I believed that we offered God an excellent sacrifice of praise! Our Male Chorus blessed us with songs of Zion. As the preaching moment drew near, I was anxious to proclaim God's Word! The Lord really blessed the preaching moment and the people were both receptive and responsive to the Word of God. After service was over, 2 of our new members who had been missing in action came up to me and re-committed themselves to the Lord and to the service of BBC. To God be the Glory!! I preached a sermon from James 1:2-3 entitled, "Mastering your Misery" here's the outline:

!. Attitude during trials (Count it all joy)

2. Assurance of trials (When you fall into manifold temptations)

3. Advantage of trials (Knowing that the trying of your faith works patience)

After worship, we went downstairs for fellowship and food. Today was our Usher 49th Anniversary. Our guests for the evening were Pastor Tyrone Pace and Second Baptist Church of Dowagiac, Michigan. We had a spirited time and our usher's got an opportunity to be appreciated for their dedicated service. This has been an annual fellowship for years and the two congregations look forward to coming together.

Pray for me this week, as I will attempt to be more regular in my posts. Also, I need your prayers because I will be in revival at the New Peter's Rock Missionary Baptist Church in South Bend, where Rev. Barney Lewis, a son of our church is the pastor!! Be Blessed!!

Awesome outline my brother! Your commitment to expository preaching is a pleasure to experience and enjoy. I'm glad you had a great Sunday and will pray God's strength upon you as you share in revival. Preeeeeach!

Rev Ray E. Owens said...

It don't make no sense to be that gifted, look at how God is blessing South Bend. Is the revival this week?

Clinton Smith said...

Great outline! You're are in our prayers week during the revival. Say word, say word!

Pastor Lance A. Mann said...

Once again it is amazing how the Holy Spirit works. Doc. Spoon, after our morning worship I was pulled aside by a young single mother who expressed to me how "miserable" she was. I made my attempts to comfort her and direct her in her thinking. Then, I see this wonderful outline of yours to further help towards her understanding. I will forward this blog to her so she can begin to "Master HER Misery". I thank God for this wonderful blogging experience and what I gain and learn from my blog relationships such as yours. Thank you.
