Church Corner Jan. 25

New Beginning Church

This past Sunday we had two great messages from Pastor Bob. The morning service was titled “Blessings” and the evening service was titled “It’s enough.” Numbers 22:6 and 12 Come now therefore, I pray thee; curse for me this people; for they are too mighty for me: Perhaps I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land; for I know that He whom thou blessest is blessed, and He who thou cursest is cursed. And God said unto Balaam thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people; for they are blessed.

Balaam was a typical hireling prophet, seeking only to make a market of his gift, but Israel was a blessed people.

Psalms 119: 1 and 2 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart.

There are many more scriptures that you can read on blessed and I just gave you a few. Are you seeking the Lord with a whole heart? Are you one of His blessed?

We had a work day at church this past Saturday and I want to say thanks to Ann and Dennis Veazey, Bobby McNew, Darrell Watts and Marie Barnes for coming out to help. We put brighter lights in the fellowship hall and put away Christmas decorations and we will have another work day about the third week in February.

“What the New Year brings us will depend a great deal on what we bring to the New Year.”

Pray, pray, pray, it’s a great way to start your day and the Lord loves to hear from His blessed people.
