Junior Church

This week we will be learning how our words can help or hurt others. This lesson will teach us to use our words for the glory of God. Scripture comes from Colossians 3:17. If you Know of anyone who might like to be a part of Junior Church, us know and we will visit them. Special thanks to all who pray for us regularly and to Shirley Stanton for her contribution to this ministry. We appreciate you all and we thank you for your support.

There will be no Junior Church on Sunday, Feb. 6th. Thanks again New Center Baptist Church!

Love in Christ,
Bobby and April.

Nine Things God Won’t Ask

Nine Things That He Will

  1. God won't ask what kind of car you drove; He'll ask how many people you drove who didn't have transportation.
  2. God won't ask the square footage of your house; He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.
  3. God won't ask about the clothes you had in your closet; He'll ask how many you helped to clothe.
  4. God won't ask what your highest salary was; He'll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.
  5. God won't ask what your job title was; He'll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.
  6. God won't ask how many friends you had; He'll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.
  7. God won't ask in what neighborhood you lived; He'll ask how you treated your neighbors.
  8. God won't ask about the color of your skin; He'll ask about the content of your character.
  9. God won't ask why it took you so long to seek Salvation; He'll lovingly take you to your mansion in heaven, and not to the gates of Hell.

Tunnel Lights

"...He hath done all things well..."
(Mark 7:37).

Some Bible verses are like lanterns. They were made for dark places and dark hours. Did you ever hear about the little girl in the train? She couldn't understand why the trainman was going through the car lighting the lamps. She said, "Mother, it is the middle of the day and the sun is shining, why is he turning on those lights?" The mother smiled, and said, "Wait a bit and you'll see what the lights are for." In a moment or two the train plunged into a long, dark tunnel, and then the little girl saw the wisdom of the lamp lighting process.

Dear friend, that Bible of yours contains thousands of verses that seem very ordinary and unnecessary. You can't see why God has gone to all the trouble of lighting those lamps of truth, but some day you're going into the tunnel of bereavement, or the tunnel of temptation, or the tunnel of suffering, and then you will value and appreciate the verses that appear to be commonplace today.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalms 119:105)

ROMANS 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
