Show Christ through Actions "The Lord is compassion- ate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love." (Psalm 103:8, NIV ). This scripture stands as a reminder to Christians of how much God has given us, and the grace and mercy he has shown us even though we do not deserve it. How amazing is it that we have a God that is forever forgiving and slow to anger. We should take a note from this verse and make our lives similar to it. By being more compas- sionate and gracious, we can show others the love of Jesus Christ through our actions. God bless you and keep you. We welcome you to all services. Come and wor- ship Jesus with us. See our Facebook page Glezen Revival Center.

Josh Sanders, Pastor Sherry Julian, Reporter RAMBLINGS Continued from page 1 Continued on page 9 that were made by us Lions. They have already been ad- dressed and hopefully not be carried over to next year's event. Each year our event gets more and more support and we look for- ward to next year already. Don't forget we help oth- ers through your support and we appreciate all your help. One of our church fami- lies has gone on vacation. They all ride together, so no one showed for church so we went to church with Cup Creek. We had a great Sunday school and much discussion was had con- cerning times where we have been at odds with peo- ple who are great friends and close to us. How do you feel before you make things better. The best answer was we feel hurt, miserable and an- gry at ourselves for letting it happen. To make things better it is much better to allow God to intervene and get over it with forgive- ness from both parties. The message was present- ed by Melissa Steineck- er and she did a great job telling us to not give up on our prayer life and to keep praying until God answers your prayer. She ended by asking us if we were ready to be accepted by our Lord when our day comes to meet Him. Will we be found waiting on God? Will we be ready for a home in heaven. Well like I said, I would try not to make this so long. I'll end with: are you ready? If your answer is I hope so or I don't know then you had better ask Jesus to help you get there. Take to the streets and make God's love be seen in your life so you can be a living exam- ple. Nazarene Methodist following at 10 :45 a.m.; Wednesday night Bible study at 6 p.m. Father's Day Sunday. Sermon Series: "The Bib- lical Principles of Giving." Scripture reading: Mat- thew 10 :40 -42. Sermon title: "The Power of Acceptance." Theme Statement: The people's reception of the Apostles would correspond to their reception of Jesus. Those who received any messenger of Jesus would be rewarded. Jesus ended on a positive note hoping that the disciples' response would be positive. There are three ways we experience the power of Ac- ceptance. 1. Accepting the Messen- ger. 2. Accepting the Mes- sage. 3. Accepting the Method.
