I want to encourage this church. God is indeed refreshing us with His Presence. Sunday mornings continue to grow at 9:00 and 10:45 services. Our revival is being well attended by people who are hungry for God. This year we have given tens of thousands of dollars to the poor or hurting. Don’t let the opportunity to pass you by this week.
This week of Holy Convocation is a week to be set aside in your lives. Stop, take some time to do a spiritual inventory, to spend time in praise, to sit quietly and read the Scriptures, or to agree with others in prayer for the Divine intervention you need. We have a promise in the Holy Scriptures for us this week.
“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before” (Acts 3:19-20). The Greek word rendered “refreshing” denotes “any kind of refreshment, as rest, or deliverance from evils of any kind” (Albert Barnes’ Notes on the Bible, Acts 3:19). While some Theologians suggest this time of refreshing may only refer to the coming of the Messiah, I believe it relates to the time of a future refreshing to His people who are “hungry and thirsty for righteousness”.
Take some time Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:00 p.m to come by and experience a time of refreshing.
