Sunday’s message was entitled “Our House Is Too Small.” The text was taken from Exodus 12:3-43; “Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.”
We recognize that Jesus Christ is often referred to in Scripture as the lamb of God. (John 1:29, Rev. 12:11, Rev. 13:8. 1 Pet. 1:18-20) In short, we have more “Lamb” than we can consume ourselves and we want to share Him with others.
God has been doing great things among us. We have experienced healing, prayers answered, Holy Ghost outpourings, and great times in the presence of the Lord. We cannot keep that to ourselves. What a shame it would be if we do not share with others.
The title of this post; “Fill the House” is also the title of a new campaign we are instituting. For the next few weeks we are on a mission to fill our own seat by being faithful every service, but also filling the seat next to us. We want others to know and be a part of the great things that God is doing.
This coming Sunday (May 3rd) we will offer a special gift to any first time Sunday guest. It doesn’t even matter if you have come on a Tuesday, we will still honor those who have never worshipped with us on a Sunday. The present we give, however, will be small in comparison to the presence of the Lord that we are expecting.
It is our desire for you to help us “Fill the House” by attending Bible Study Tuesday at 7:30 or Sunday at 2:00. For exact meeting times and location, please see the Events tab at the top of the page. We look forward to seeing you as we have a seat for YOU to fill!
