Good morning on this beautiful West Tennessee morning the Lord, our Heavenly Father hath made, and better so it is our day to gather with our Brothers & Sister in Christ at the House of the Lord!
I greatly enjoy reading our churches weekly news letter, and rejoice in all the amazing work that is going on not only in our church, but more so in our community! As we are an Acts 1:8 church;
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
~Acts 1:8~ Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
I greatly enjoyed our Pastor; Dr. Dennis Trull’s message “From the Pastor’s Desk”,
Not only do I almost always have a spiritual moving from his messages and sermons, whether it comes from the pulpit, face to face, or via the news letter.
This week Brother Dennis speaks of how an young man repetitively asking his father questions from; what makes a boat float to why the sky is blue. The young man then asked his father if it upset him that he was asking all these questions, of course the good father replied no, and that he was proud his son asked questions of him, our how else would he get answers if he didn’t ask questions?
Bro. Dennis follows with this;
Our Heavenly Father is where we should turn with all our questions, for He has all the answers of this world, and the after world! He then gave these five wonderful examples;
1.) Am I loving You with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength; and my neighbor(s) as myself? (Mark 12:30-31)
2.) When You look at my life Lord, do you find anything that displeases You? (Ps. 139:23-24)
3.) Did You really mean I am to be thankful in all circumstances or was that a typo?
(1st Thess. 5:18)
4.) Am I seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness?
5.) Why would you let your innocent Son pay for my sins when I am the one who was guilty? (2nd Cor. 5:21)
Thank you Bro. Dennis for this wonderful parable that illustrates to us the true questions we should all be asking our Heavenly Father, and this is just a drop in the bucket as to what we need to ask Him. I could go on forever in questions for our Lord and Savior, our great Redeemer!
I would like to add the importance of staying in “The Word” every day. That if we plan to talk the talk, and walk the walk, we must be dedicated firmly, everyday, time to spend with the Lord, our Father in quietness, and alone, in His word.
I pray that each and every one who has read these great word of our Pastor will turn to the Lord on bent knees, with bowed heads in reverence, seeking His knowledge, for He said all we have to do is seek Him first!
“But from there, you will search for the LORD your God, and you will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart and all your soul.”
