Meticulous bible readings in Concord, NC
Dear Church Family at Broadus,
I desire a great February for you and your family, as we follow and serve our Lord Jesus!
Proverbs 29:18 says, “where there is no vision, the people perish: but he (the person) that keepeth (present tense) the law (the Word) (Matthew 22:37), HAPPY IS HE!”
Amazing how the most spiritual wise man in the world, Solomon, connected the Word to having a vision (something to look forward unto), to perishing and being happy (joyous). Surely you know joy and happiness are not always connected. Sometimes, but not always. Joy is inward and happiness is outward. True joy (Jesus) will produce true happiness!
What are you looking forward to? For yourself? For your family? Your job? Your future? Your church? Your calling in the Lord?
Whatever it is, there will be no joy or happiness in it, if the Word is not connected to all that you’re seeking in those areas. Hallelujah! The Word will tell you how to conduct all your affairs throughout your entire life. Do you believe it?
Stay in faith, and I will see you at His House!
I love you,
Verse for the Month:
“Beloved I wish above all things, that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

Thought for the Month:
I love the rules and ceremonies in the church. But I see, well-pleased, that our Great Lord can work without them!
Pastor’s Thought for the Month:
You cannot and will not fight your enemy (devil/demons) if you are sick spiritually, emotionally or physically. Therefore, the need for healing.
