Are You Mak­ing Wise In­vest­ments In Heaven?

McDonald County Press - - CHURCH -

If the woman with the is­sue and Jairus had put their faith in some­one other than Je­sus they would have lost the bless­ing of heal­ing and sal­va­tion. They made the right in­vest­ment!

Here we are again shar­ing the Love of Christ with you. This is the day that the Lord has made, Let us be glad and re­joice in it.

I do wish you would visit the Cove and if you do not have a home church give us a chance to make you feel the won­der­ful bless­ings that only come from our Sav­ior.

We had birth­days to cel­e­brate Sun­day: Sis­ter Dorothy Cost and Sis­ter Jody Cartwright, we’re so glad that they were al­lowed to spend another year in ser­vice for the Fa­ther. Both are such a bless­ing to our church, al­ways ready with a hug that shows their love for ev­ery­one. Brother Daniel gave a spe­cial wish for Jody, so sweet that he wants all to know the love and re­spect he has for his wife. Good Job Daniel.

We were so thrilled to again see Sis­ter Vi­ola (Sis­ter Naomi’s sis­ter) and Brother Gary from Kansas. Car­lie Cartwright was with us this morn­ing, she is such a beau­ti­ful girl. Sis­ter Brandi Crosby was here with her chil­dren, so happy to see them. We praise the Lord for all who came. If I miss you please for­give me.

Pastor gives us the word in so many dif­fer­ent places, I’m try­ing to keep up.

We want to say that we are pray­ing for the vic­tims of the hur­ri­cane.

Pastor Bob gave us a les­son be­gin­ning with Mark 14:1-6, along the same lines of last week’s ser­mon, we learn of the com­pas­sion Je­sus had for even the sin­ner. He never holds back the heal­ing of those who seek his help.

Just as if all were the only per­son in the world, He never turns from them. Just like the woman who had the is­sue of blood for 12 long years, she was banned from the tem­ple and was an out­cast. A man named Jairus, a high pri­est who had tried to fig­ure a way to get rid of Je­sus, had come to beg for heal­ing for his daugh­ter, who was dy­ing.

When he found Je­sus he asked him to come to his house, bowed down at the feet of our Lord and asked for help. Dur­ing this time many were fol­low­ing them and Je­sus stopped and asked, “Who touched me?” Well, who could tell when the crowd was so great. Then the woman with the is­sue spoke up and said if I could but touch the hem of your gar­ment I would be healed.

Tak­ing time to talk to her, Je­sus said, “Daugh­ter, thy faith has made thee whole, go in peace.” She was healed. Now this is the way our Lord takes time for all who seek him. He is avail­able to those who keep him first in their lives.

At this point some were sure that Jairus’ daugh­ter was dead. Je­sus spoke and said “Be not afraid. The girl is not dead — she only sleeps.” When they reached the house He reached out to her and said “Dam­sel I say to thee, ‘arise,’” and she rose up and walked.

If the woman with the is­sue and Jairus had put their faith in some­one other than Je­sus they would have lost the bless­ing of heal­ing and sal­va­tion. They made the right in­vest­ment!

Read Matthew 6:9-21. This en­forces the fact that we are to make our in­vest­ment in heaven for where your trea­sures are there will your heart be. That’s pretty straight! Never fail to look at your ev­ery­day life and ask your­self what is the most im­por­tant thing in my fu­ture. I’m sure you will give the old an­swer given for all time, it is Heaven or Hell.

Where do you want to in­vest your life?

As the woman in the book of Luke who gave her last penny, you have a choice to make. Put your hand in the hand of the one who re­wards you in­vest­ments.

God Bless un­til next week.
