Message: "Some Cannot See, Others Are Just Blind"
Sermon notes: Pastor Stanley's sermon got us all to thinking of
what is the truth? Do we find it and test the truth?
Our faith calls us to read and to pursue the truth as we learn
of it from the Bible. And as the Bible teach us,
Jesus said many times "I tell you the truth...".
And as we learned from the reading of John, chapter 9;
Jesus healed the blind man and although many saw
this miracle, they still did not believe Jesus was the Christ.
It comes back to us. . .
Do we need to see, do we believe or not?
Hymnal #361: "Near the Cross" (Howard)
End of service
And as you go on to pursue week, remember:
God stays close to us even in death. When someone we love is nearing death, we may become angry and feel abandoned. But believers (the Lord’s loved ones) are precious to God, and he carefully chooses the time when they will be called into his presence. Let this truth provide comfort when you’ve lost a loved one. God sees, and each life is valuable to him.
