May 2nd Update

Dear TBC Family & Friends,

There are different types of people in every local church.  Some struggle to make ends meet and need to pray daily for their “daily bread.”  However, we find in the last verses of 1 Timothy that there are some who have more means.  Both the rich and poor need to beware of covetousness as that is a sin that can afflict every person.  But the rich, a category that many Americans would fall into, need to beware of other pitfalls that accompany wealth.  All of our resources are gifts from God, and as believers we are given the responsibility to be good stewards and use our resources according to God’s perfect will.  Apparently a portion of our eternal reward will be dependent on how we utilize the resources God has given us.

I want to encourage you to come back Sunday evening.  We live in a world in which people are influenced in their thinking by sound bites, by the media, by entertainers, by dynamic professors and by our own peers and families.  We are noticing in scripture that there are many examples of people who had the information to make right decisions but for whatever reason made the wrong decision which proved to be fatal.  This evening we will discuss what causes people to make decisions that will result in God’s judgment.  These messages can help us to be alert to influences that can sway us from the path of God’s will.

PS:  We are making good headway with the church construction.  Hopefully the painting can be finished this week and cleaning can begin.  Please pray that sufficient finances will be given so we can completely finish the project in a timely manner.
