“When Christ is preached the hearts of them which are elect and chosen begin to wax soft and melt at the bounteous mercy of God.”
As we pray for those He has called us to minister to we see and know He is choosing and calling them out of darkness. We never know how He will call those out of darkness but we do know it is by His Holy Spirit and through the hearing of His Word. He opens their eyes to see Him.
1 Peter 1:23 says we are born again through the living and abiding word of God. This is why it is so important to preach and teach the Word. We, who believe He has risen and is alive, must boldly march forward with His gospel message.
This morning the service filled up with 104 ladies. Some came to hear His Word, some came to worship Him, some came to see friends, some came seeking and others came just because it was Easter. We know that God is the one that provides the soil for the seed to grow so we rely on Him.
The women were first allowed time to share what they knew about His resurrection. Then they heard the message of what happened and why was His resurrection is so important? If His resurrection were not real where would their hope be? Lamont taught them on the history of the resurrection and how it is true. They can believe it! There were many questions and answers as the truth of His resurrection and His Word was opened up and proclaimed. May His Spirit continue to work and reveal these truths to those who are coming, seeking and hungering.
