Memory Verse
But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).

Words Of Wisdom
In Acts 5, we have the story of the 12 apostles of Jesus being put in prison for sharing the good news of Christ with the people of Israel. They were to go on trial before the religious leaders the next day, but God beat them to the punch, and miraculously frees them during the night. The next morning the religious leaders find the empty prison cell and then discover that they are back to preaching Jesus to Israel They are then brought before the high priest for trial and are asked (in v. 28): “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name?” (= the name of Jesus). Peter, as the leader of the 12, boldly declares: “We ought to obey God rather than men” (5:29). Like Peter and the 12, our faithfulness to God is tantamount. He is to have our COMPLETE loyalty!

Memory Verse
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding” (Daniel 2:20– 21).

Words Of Wisdom
After praying for God’s help in his life and death situation regarding the king of Babylon’s dream, Daniel receives the answer he sought from God and bursts into praise for His wisdom and might. God’s control of human events is seen in the phrase: “He changes the times and seasons.” God also controls who rules over the nations on earth: “He removes kings and raises up kings.” Daniel also praises God for the wisdom and knowledge He gives to spiritual people who are in desperate need. Thus, we should remember that God is in total control of all that is happening. Daniel was taken 500 miles away from his home country, but could still worship God for being in control of everything!

Guest Speakers
We are excited and honored to have two guests with us today. Bro. Bill Wade will be bringing us a  message during worship service. And then Bill Gilbert will be sharing some words with us
about the Gideon International organization.

Memory Verse
Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him. For the help of His countenance.

Words Of Wisdom
The idea that we could tell our physical heart to do something might seem strange, but it has spiritual parallels. “Why, my soul, are you downcast?” the psalmist says to himself. “Put your hope in God” (Psalm 42:5). “Return to your rest, my soul,” says another, “for the Lord has been good to you” (116:7). After
beating Israel’s enemies in war, Deborah, a judge, revealed that she too had spoken to her heart during battle. “March on, my soul,” she told it, “be strong!” (Judges 5:21), because the Lord had promised victory (4:6–7). So when fear, depression, or condemnation come, perhaps we too should address our souls
and say: March on! Be strong! Feeble heart, beat again.

Happy Birthday

Memory Verse
“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me” (Psalm 50:15).

Words Of Wisdom
In the Bible Knowledge Commentary, Allen P. Ross writes: “Israel should offer their sacrifices of thanksgiving from a genuine trust in the Lord. The solution to formalism is to worship in genuine
faith, which is why Asaph called on the people to sacrifice thank offerings. The Hebrew word for thank offerings is tôdâh, from the verb yāḏâh, “to acknowledge, thank.” Such an offering could not be given unless the offerer had experienced God’s work on his behalf. If he was in distress and called on God, the Lord would answer. Then the offerer would praise the Lord as a spontaneous expression of his enjoyment of God’s benefits. If the people had been praising they would have enjoyed His benefits, not worshiping in an empty ritualistic form.”

No Wednesday Evening Prayer
We will not have an online prayer meeting this week. Pastor and Kelly are ge]ng away for a day or two. A much deserved break.

Happy Birthday

Memory Verse
“Depart from me, you evildoers, for I will keep the commandments of my God!” (Psalm 119:115).

Words Of Wisdom
Allen P. Ross, in his tremendous commentary on the book of Psalms comments on verse 115: “Typical of laments in general, the psalmist turns to address the evildoers (e.g., see Ps. 6:8). He says, “Depart from me … that I may keep the commandments of my God.” It is a demand for the wicked to leave him alone so
that he can hold to God’s word in his life. He could maintain such a commitment to the word even if they did not depart; but if they let him alone, however, he would be free to do more in his service of God.” Never forget, “If you lay down with the dogs, you get up with the fleas.”
