Ministry Events for week ending 9/15/13:
Thursday's Study at the Tulia Unit: Due to the possible addition, of a new Study, to begin at the Clements Unit, this Study is being moved to Tuesday evening. Every Tuesday, except for the third Tuesday, we shall convene in study. This past Thursday, we reviewed verses five through seven, from II Timothy. About half of the men were new attendees. There were about six men who have been coming to the Study for about two years, and a few more for about one year. There are many examples, of those who oppose the righteous way, as pretenders. We talked about, how many others follow after those "creepers". We, also, made mention of the growth, in the Lord, that we have witnessed, in one another. Thank Him!
Friday's Study at the Youth Center: Matthew 5: 1-6, was the focal point, for this Study. There were five young men, who made up the Study, initially. After about ten minutes, another young man came to join us. It seemed that none of them had a interest, in being in the Study. The Lord is always on board, for He is the Captain. They began to loosen up, and the Word of God, began to open up understandings. My Lord! Those that are blessed are given gifts form the Lord. The Holy Ghost being the Supreme Gift. Before the "pausing prayer", which I lead, I asked them, if anyone had any questions. One young man asked, if I would pray for him, concerning his near court date. He wanted to be released. I told him that I would pray for him. However, I would pray that God would place him anywhere, that he would be helped. I added that I did not want to see him get released, only to shortly return. He said that he understood. The young man, who came into the Study, after we began, asked if I would pray for him, as well. I agreed. Then I said to them, that they seemed as if they did not want to be there. The second young man replied that he didn't want to be there, referring to the Facility. I told him that I would pray the same prayer for him, as for the other. The Lord, once again, moved greatly.
Sunday's Service at the Allred Unit: This Unit has made some significant changes. There are three State Chaplains, now in place. They have revamped their Praise Team. The main leaders are still in place. However, they are more organized. They also have appointed eight men to serve as ushers. Things are more decent and in order. The Praise Team lead us in three songs of worship. Very moving. Danny McFalls came forth with words of encouragement. He was moved and visibly shaken by the first song that was done. He put a lot of emotion into his testimony. The Praise Team lead us in two more songs. I came with a message from Matthew 5: 6. We all have strong desires for something, and or, someone in various stages of life. Usually, we lust after the things of this world, and, thus, we build or treasures. Whenever we turn our desires unto the Maker, in a hunger and thirst for his word, He begins to open our understanding, by His Spirit, and the "Bread of Life" begins to satisfy that sincere hunger and thirst. We must seek God, in order to find Him. The sequences which lead to eternal life with Him follows, as we continue in His Word. The partaking of the "tree of knowledge, of good and evil", caused man to "surely die" spiritually. The "tree of life", in Christ Jesus, the Word of God, is offered to all, that man may "surely live". But,all will not partake. For, all never hungers and thirsts for Him.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
