Charles Spurgeon wrote, “As the river seeks the sea, so Jesus I seek Thee! O let me find thee and melt my life into Thine, forever.” A heart that craves the Lord is a precious thing! Do you seek after Jesus and His Word with unstoppable resolve and tenacity? Our revival speakers reminded us that people, churches, families and nations are to seek the Lord above all else. What a privilege it is to daily do this very thing!
I don’t know about you, but for me the revival services this month reminded me of how blessed I am to be a born-again Christian. The Lord sent us great speakers, and we saw wonderful attendance every night. Thanks to all who participated, to all who helped with logistics, and especially to the Growth Committee who organized the publicity. I commend all of the Buffalo folks who prayed, attended and invited friends. My heart was deeply moved at seeing the response to people praying at the altar. I so appreciate all who have contributed to the events of that busy, fruitful week.
Please be much in prayer for the vote that will take place on September 28. It is essential that every possible church member be present that day—if you need transportation, please call Gary Phillips at 336-210-2000. If you have questions or need help in any way to make it on Sunday, September 28, call us! This vote is a crucial “next step” in building a better future for our beloved church! We want Buffalo to continue “standing strong” and reaching people with the Good News of Jesus Christ years after we are all gone. Our faithfulness today will yield tangible fruit tomorrow. I urge every one to pray, pray and pray for September 28! I look forward to seeing you on that day.
We serve a very faithful Savior! To Jesus we can bring our hopes, dreams, fears, joys, petitions and of course, confession of our sins. He is faithful and just to forgive us.(1 John 1:9) May the Lord bless you richly in your walk and witness for Him. “Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.” Psalm 149:8
