God's Book

The day after Christmas 2009, Amazon.com announced that Kindle had become the most gifted item in Amazon's history. With Kindle available at the click of a button --we have more secular and religious reading choices than ever before. But as we pursue knowledge, will we make time to read God's Book?

The Holy Bible still tops the best-selling books lists. Yet our insatiable quest for experiential knowledge can keep us from this source of Truth. The Israelites were not judged because they elevated knowledge, but because they elevated experience over knowledge (Hosea 4:6). Jesus rebuked the leaders of Israel in His day because they had "taken away the key of knowledge," misleading people from the truth of Jesus' words (Luke 11:52). Proverbs 1:7 clarifies our search for truth: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge."

Discipleship Training

Yesterday we started the discipleship training of the 4 ladies who have been baptized in our church. It was announced in our worship service last Sunday and I asked the ladies what is the best time for them to have the discipleship training and they said 1:00 PM and they agreed to do it every Wednesday at 1-2 PM. I noticed that the new converts are not growing spiritually and sometimes they don't attend our services regularly. Hubby and I were praying to the Lord to bless our members and that they will have a closer relationship with the Lord. We believe that the discipleship training will help the ladies grow spiritually after they accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Dear Mr. God

I'm sorry for keepin' ya up late.
But, I wanna know
If' you're too busy, I can wait.

You see grandma's been forgettin'
A lot of things. Mamma says so.
She forgot my name, today, Mr. God,
And she's a walkin' kinda slow.

Yesterday, she jest left
Without even sayin' bye.
Daddy brought her back and
He had a tear in his eye.

So, I was wonderin', can you fix her?
She has somthun' called 'all tizers', daddy said.
She forgets who we are sometimes,
And she forgot that grandpa's dead.

Mr. God, you give her a new brememberer
'Cause I miss her playin', and stuff, with me
And the cookies she used to bake.
And, she was so smart, wasn't she?

She used to talk 'bout you a lot.
Now, she jest talks to herself and,
Mr. God, she don't know herself

Sometimes, she calls me 'little boy'
