As your pastor, I can say I am thankful to God for the work of ministry that goes on here at Emanuel. Years ago, I made a vow to God that I would devote my life to giving out His Word. There are times I wish I could do it better, but the promise to serve Him keeps me going. I am also thankful for the trials He has permitted in my life and for His deliverance from many of them. Each one teaches me something new and helps me grow into a better servant.
This week, we are going to look at Jonah, the reluctant prophet. After a three day and three night trial in the belly of a fish, Jonah stated, “What I have vowed I will make good.” What about you? Are you “making good” on your vows?
See you in church!
Songs we’re singing this week: “I Will Follow”, “Eye of the Storm”, “Soon”, “I’ll Go Where You Want Me to Go”and “I Know Whom I Have Believed”
