A Few Notes to the Family:
As we look ahead to Sunday, I will speak on “The Warmth of God’s Embrace” in the morning and our choir will sing. We will also have another special number and a special offertory. At our 6 PM service, we will sing hymns, share testimonies, and have the 22nd message in our series from Thessalonians: Dealing with the Disorderly – Part 2. This is the final in our series on these two NT Epistles.
I’ve been thinking …
Our God is high and exalted above the heaven of heavens, that is, He is transcendent. And yet there are times when we sense His nearness that He walks and talks with me and tells me that I am His own. This concept refers to His immanence – that God is near. Every man has an innate craving for religious affection; nearness. Because God is immanent, the following are true:  He is never distant, always at hand  He is not just absolute, He is personal  we have a friend that sticks closer than a brother  we have one who understands, cares for us like no other  He comes along side us in the person of His Holy Spirit. Most of us have felt the tender embrace of our God at just the right season of life. I hope to see you Sunday as we spend a few moments examining this precious truth. – Pastor
