Last Sunday God moved upon us during our invitation and it was a beautiful sight. Many came forward to pray for numerous requests. Many of the prayers were for family and loved ones who once walked with God but have turned away and now live lives contrary to the Word of God and the way they were raised. I am joining you in prayer! Keep being persistent in your love and prayers for those far from God. I am reminded of Isaiah 1:18, “‘Come now, and let us reason together,’ says the Lord, ‘though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.'”
On Sunday we will continue our “Blessed” sermon series with a message entitled “A Blessed Nation.” Our text is Psalm 33. Over the weekend take some time to read this psalm and especially contemplate Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.”
We will have our annual Harvest Offering on November 19, the Sunday before Thanksgiving. At that time we will take up a special offering for our church to help us catch up on our year-to-date spending. With a generous Harvest Offering and end-of-year giving we can make up the deficit. Thank you for giving so generously and sacrificially. So many of you give your tithes to GHBC which enables us to pay for our budgetary expenses. I am also most grateful for how you give to Missions as well as Building Vision. Our missions offering goes to support over 20 mission partnerships that we have, and our Building Vision funds the repairs and remodels on our church campus. Thank you again! May God richly bless you for your generosity.
The next few days will be busy ones. I am sure I will see many of you at the Kari Jobe concert Saturday night and again Monday night at the Franklin Graham Decision Texas event at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock.
Blessings to you.
