Our Area Wide Devo!

Our Area Wide Youth Devotional is a great thing for all of us. We look forward to having Brother John Rice come to speak with us on this topic, and I am sure he will present an incredible lesson. The topic for us will be “The wise and foolish builder” and the text will be taken from Matt 7:24-29 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. Now everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. “

How can you prepare? It is pretty simple.

  1. BE HERE – Yes it sounds simple, but make sure you are here! The commandment to assemble with the saints applies to ALL services (Heb 10:25), but this is an event we should make extra special effort to attend!
  2. INVITE SOMEONE – Bring some one with you. I completely understand that we should invite someone to come for ALL services, but special events such as Friends Day, Area Wide Devotionals, and Homecomings, are special times for us to bring a guest. What better time to bring someone with you then at a time when so many people are gathered to worship our Creator! Young people this especially applies to YOU! BRING YOUR FRIENDS with you do not let this opportunity pass you by. Jesus reminded us to look for the times to ASK, SEEK and KNOCK and the door will be opened to us (Matt 7:7)!  Look for opportunities to introduce your friends to your most important commitment on this special day!
