For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  

But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Pray for out Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Once again, yesterday, I had the opportunity to tell a store clerk about OCC.  They just have to ask how I am using all the things I get to purchase.  I, like some of you, cannot let the opportunity pass without sharing about this wonderful ministry.  I get to inform children about Jesus and inform clerks about the OCC ministry at the same time.

Friday

If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 

But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Daniel 3:17-18

I love to read about Daniel.  He had such high standards as he served God.

 

 

Mrs. Bessie Hayden got her portable oxygen yesterday and called to say she will be at Bible study this morning.  How many other places could she have chosen to to go today, but the desire of her heart is to be at church studying God’s Word.  We’ll be glad to have her back.
