Preacher's Thoughts

It’s easy to see a building growing in our parking lot as it will soon be finished. It’s not as easy to see the spiritual building God is helping us grow as he sends us more and more new folks.  And hopefully that building will not be finished anytime soon……

 

What a loss we suffered in the recent passing of Shirley Bassford.  Shirley’s kind spirit was known to everyone she touched at Gulf Coast Christian, Shorecrest and Northwest.  Our deepest sympathy is extended to Ed and all the family.  Shirley saw a lot of students graduate and now she has experienced the greatest graduation we can ever achieve……

 

One of the key directives in the Christian life is study, not just reading but study.  Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth (II Timothy 2:15).  Very few take time to follow this directive.  I hope you are one of the few.  At Northwest we have so many opportunities to study.  Please take advantage of those opportunities as well as the ones you have at home.  Never depend on someone else’s study for yours….

 

I look forward to seeing you Sunday.
