The Power Of The Holy Ghost Il­lu­mi­nates

“Al­ways put the Trin­ity first in your life, and you can find the right path to fol­low and peace as only our Lord can give. Just let go and let God have his way in your life!”

Pas­tor Bob had to have some pretty se­ri­ous den­tal work done, so we were blessed with a vis­it­ing preacher who is known to many of God’s chil­dren. Brother Dar­rin Robins and his sweet wife came to wor­ship with us. They also brought two of their grand­chil­dren, one beau­ti­ful young lady blessed us with a song and was ac­com­pa­nied by her brother on the drums while Grandpa played the gui­tar. It’s amaz­ing how much tal­ent such young chil­dren can show if just given a chance. We love the chil­dren to be in­volved in our ser­vice.

Sis­ter San­dra Cartwright had a birth­day and, hon­estly, she doesn’t look any older than when I first met her. She is a very beau­ti­ful per­son in­side and out. Bless you for all you do for the church.

Brother Randy Richard­son and Brother Dar­rin Robins both sang songs of praise. When Brother Dar­rin be­gan, he gave us the scrip­ture in Acts 2:1-4. This is a very fa­mil­iar ac­count of the day of Pen­te­cost where peo­ple were gath­ered in one mind and one ac­cord to wor­ship the Lord. As they wor­shiped, there came a sound from heaven as of a rush­ing mighty wind. It filled the house. There was an at­mos­phere of praise among the wor­shipers. There ap­peared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire and it sat upon each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Ghost and be­gan to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them ut­ter­ance.

If you re­mem­ber, when Jesus went away, He promised us that He would not go away un­less He could send a com­forter. The Holy Ghost is a com­fort in time of trou­ble and can bring words of scrip­ture as we need them. He is the one who of­ten leads and guides us through hard times. It is im­pos­si­ble to re­flect light with­out hav­ing light in your heart. Jesus is the light of the world and will give us hope not only in this life, but He has gone to pre­pare us a home in heaven.

Brother Dar­rin gave an il­lus­tra­tion of a dark place in the woods where there is no light and it’s cold. When you build a fire, not only does it warm you but it gives you light. That is ex­actly the mission of the Holy Ghost. Fire is a won­der­ful thing when it is han­dled rightly. Think about the three He­brew chil­dren who were thrown into the fiery fur­nace be­cause they would not bow to any god ex­cept the true and liv­ing God. When they came out of the fire, they didn’t even smell of smoke. Why? Be­cause when on­look­ers peered into the fire they saw four and one was likened to the Son of God. Praise God, He never leaves us alone.

We can call on the Fa­ther, the Son and the Holy Ghost to bring us through any de­struc­tion that Satan may send our way. Al­ways put the Trin­ity first in your life, and you can find the right path to fol­low and peace as only our Lord can give. Just let go and let God have his way in your life!

We thank Brother Dar­rin for bring­ing the word to us this Sun­day and bring­ing his fam­ily to wor­ship with us. Un­til next week, God Bless you is our prayer.
