The Savior’s Great Love

Sunday Morning Service 10/02/22 – Pastor Eric Davis

Thank you.

Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Thank you, brother Jim. Anybody else? Last call.

We’re praying and God’s able and God’s still on the throne. And good to see you guys. You all aren’t forgotten, I promise you. Good to have you here this morning. God’s good. Amen. Even in our trying times, god’s good. All right, let’s bow in prayer. And Brother Gary, will you lead us in prayer, please? Thank you. Billy. Gary, I guess I should tell you where to turn. Ephesians, chapter number two. We’ll start there. We got the four places in mind this morning and I know it’s a little unusual that we don’t like to jump around too much, but that’s just the way it is this morning. Ephesians, chapter two. And while you’re turning there, like to tell you that the title of the message this morning is The Savior’s Great Love. The love of God is deeper than the human tongue can describe. I don’t have the words to describe it. You don’t have the words to describe it. We can stand, every one of us, and testify how good God’s been to us and we would just scratch the surface of the greatness of God’s love. Excuse me. It’s broader. It’s wider than we can imagine. It reaches further than we can reach up. It’s greater than the blight of the darkest sin. Amen. God’s love involves a great sacrifice I think we often underappreciate. We don’t appreciate what great sacrifice it costs the Lord to come down from heaven and take upon himself the rebel flesh. It includes the greatest sinner. There’s no one that the love and grace of God cannot reach. Now they have an obligation to choose whether to receive it or not, but there’s nobody that it cannot reach. It reaches all. And we’ll talk a little bit about that and ought to motivate you and me to offer our greatest service to the Lord. Great love like that comes at a responsibility. You’ve been given great love. We ought to return that. Reciprocate that. So, Ephesians, chapter number two, verse one. It says, and you hath he quickened who were dead in trespasses and sins. How many of you know at one time you were dead in trespasses and sin? Every single one of us. When time passed. You all according to the course of this world. According to the prince of the power of the air. The spirit that now were within the children of disobedience among whom also we all had a conversation in time passed in the lust of our flesh. Fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind and were by nature the children of wrath even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy for his great love, wherewith he loved us even when we were dead and sins hath quickened us or made us alive together with Christ by grace you are saved. And hath raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. You and I may be seated. You may be seated. I’m not seated. In the PAX Branch Baptist Church in between PAX of Mount Hope in West Virginia. And I wouldn’t have it any other way, would you? But positionally we are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. It’s as if we’re already there. We have access under the throne room of God. Then in the ages to come, he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. So for a few moments this morning, and I promise I’ll try not to keep you over. Trying not to keep you long. I know Bill’s got some food. I think he’s getting ready for the or. He’s already got it ready. So we’re good, right? All right. So I can keep you however long you need to. The great love that God shown toward us, we understand the love of God in Christ Jesus. The Bible speaks. And like Frank mentioned this morning, the word rapture is not in the Bible, but the doctrine sure is. The catching away of the saints, the Jesus returning to the air and lifting up his saints before the tribulation. I believe and you believe that the Bible teaches a pretribulation rapture for the church of God. We’re not going to go through a tribulation, another word that’s not found in the Bible. But we believe it because the Bible teaches it. You can know the word Bible is not found in the Bible. You ever thought about that? But I surely believe the Bible. Amen. And we attach names to doctrines so we don’t have to sit here and describe all the tenets of the doctrine. We can just say rapture. And we know what we’re talking about. A Bible. We know what we’re talking about. God’s word Trinity, a triune God, one God manifested in three persons. I can’t explain that. You can’t explain that. People have tried. Have you tried to use water? Water exists in gas and liquid and solid, yet it still is one thing. It’s water. And that gives us an idea. You can say a family unit consists of husband and wife and children. That gives us an idea. But still, it’s impossible for us in our present state to understand how there could be one God. Yet he manifests Himself in three distinct different persons. He’s gone. The Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. In John chapter number one. So hold your place here. If you got a marker, john, chapter number one, verse number one. We could probably quote that together. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same as in the beginning with God. So this would go too fast, too quickly over those words. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Now, there are some that have different beliefs than we do. And they don’t believe that Jesus is God and they’ll change this portion of Scripture to fit their beliefs. But I don’t think that change anything in the Bible, do you? They would just believe it as it is the same as in the beginning with God twice it says that the Word was with God and then it also says the Word was God. So in the beginning when God said, let us make man in our image, there’s a pure form of God there. Let us make man in our image. God the Father of God, the Son of God the Holy Spirit. You know, each one, each personality of their Godhead had a work in creation. God the father spoke. And look at verse number three. All things were made by Him who the Word, right, god the Son had something to do with creation. God the Spirit moved upon the face of the waters in Genesis chapter number one. Every part had a part in creation. Here’s what we’re getting at. Jesus Christ our Savior existed before he became a baby in the manger of Bethlehem. He has always been. He’s been coexisted and coequal with God the Father and God the Spirit. Okay? This is the first part where we got to understand what it cost God the Son to die on the cross for our sins. He’s eternally existent with the Heavenly Father in him. His life restored. The life was the light of men and the light shineth and darkness and the darkest copper. He did not jump down to verse number 14. And the Word was made flesh and dread among us and we behead his glory. The glory is as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. The Word who had a part in creation, who was with God and was God, became flesh and dwelt among us. And we call him Jesus. Some call him Savior. I call him jesus. Amen. And we know who he is. He’s the only begun of the Father, full of grace and truth, jesus Himself. We’re going to look at a few verses just real quick that serve as further proof that Jesus is God. I don’t think there’s anybody in here this morning that would question that, but we need to know why we believe that and how we can use that in the future if needed. Jesus Christ has referred to as Lord in the Scripture. Psalm 110, verse one. The Lord o capital R, capital D. That always refers to Jehovah dahn. In the Old Testament, the Lord said unto my Lord, small or d, sit down in my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstall. This verse is quoted in the New Testament several times. Matthew, chapter 22, mark, chapter twelve, luke, chapter 20. Jesus quoted this to show that the Messiah, the Promised One, is also called Lord. It’s called the Divine Lord. In Acts chapter two, verse 34. Peter refers to this verse in his sermon, in his message that he’s preaching. Hebrews, chapter one, verse 13. Let me look at that one worth with you real quick. If you want to turn there, you can find it real quick. You can turn you might find it quicker than I’m finding it right now. Hebrews, chapter one, verse number 13. It says, but to which of the angels said he is talking about God the Father at any time. Sit on my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstall. He’s referring to this passage of scripture. So God the Father is making God the Son ruler. He’s seated at the right hand of the Father. Okay, so just proof. Number one. All right, from the Scriptures, jesus Christ is referred to as Lord in the Scriptures. Number two, the Messiah was promised that he would come be born of a virgin, and his name would be called Emmanuel. Which means what? God with us. Isaiah 714. Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign. Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and that’s a miracle of God and bear son, and shall call his name Emmanuel. Matthew 122, verse 923. Talks about the same thing, says initial, calls name Emmanuel, which being interpreted as God with us, god in flesh with us. Okay, number three. The Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ was given divine names and prophecy. I like this pastor scripture. In Isaiah, chapter number nine, we hear credit at Christmas time, which, by the way, is just around the corner. For under us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder. His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor. The mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. Who’s just referring to the Lord. The Lord Jesus Christ. Wonderful. God is truly wonderful, Counselor. The Almighty of God could only be the perfect counselor. The mighty God, that’s selfexplanatory, the one promised to be the Messiah, is the Almighty God and the everlasting Father. Michael five two, says, out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be real in Israel, whose goings forth have been from evolved from everlasting sweet preacher. Well, I’m saying that Jesus existed. It was eternal in his past. There was no beginning to the Lord Jesus Christ exist. Chapter three, verse 14. God said in the Moses, I am that I am. He’s a selfsufficient one. Aren’t you glad of that? I don’t add anything to God. Even he adds everything to me. If I were to deny Him, he would still be born on continue on faithful, faithful to the end, because he is, I am that I am. He’s a selfsufficient, selfexistent one. He doesn’t need me. I sure need him. I’m glad that he has me here. But John Chapter 858. Jesus said unto them, very truly, truly I say unto you before Abraham was, I am. That’s not a grammatically incorrect statement. There never was a time when Jesus was not. He’s been eternally existent. And the Jews under survey was saying, because they took up stones to kill him many times they knew he was making Himself equal with God. Only God can forgive sins. And how many times did Jesus and his miracles tell those that came to Him in faith said, thy sins I forgiven thee. Jesus claimed equality with the Father and with the Spirit. When we baptize, we baptize. The name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Ghost comes from Matthew chapter 28 in the Blessing in Two, Corinthians 1314 world time to look at that. His power could only come from God. His knowledge could only come from God. His creative power in creation, in the miracles feeding into 50, we could go on and on. His power over the wind and the sea he would speak and the winds would lay down flat. The sea would cease this rage. Jesus walked on the water, and he even allowed Peter to walk on the water. Only God could do that. He received worship due only to God. You remember when Jesus was tempted of the devil? The Devil said, well, if you’ll find out, worship me, I’ll give you all the kingdoms of the world. And the world’s kingdoms have been delivered unto Satan. For this time he’s a defeated fold. But he is ruling right now. He is raining on the earth. But Jesus said, get thee behind me, Satan. He said you should only worship God, and Him only shalt thou serve. Yet Jesus himself received worship. So one of two things either Jesus was the greatest imposter that ever lived, or he is who he says he is. He is God in flesh. Amen. And he is God in flesh. Jesus accepted the testimony of Thomas, who said, my Lord and my God, the fact of Jesus resurrection. She put the nail in the coffin. Romans one, verse four and declare to be the Son of God with power according to the spirit of holiness. By the resurrection from the dead. God the Father raised God the Son from the grave. And that should be proof alone that Jesus is who he says he is. He’s God the son. If he is who he says he is, he means what he says. He’s coming back one day. He’s coming soon. So summary jesus possesses ten attributes of God, exclusive attributes of God. He’s eternal, he’s unchangeable the same yesterday, today and forever. I’ve got this written down so I don’t mess it up, okay? He’s eternal, unchangeable, omnipotent. That’s all powerful. I’m not present everywhere. He knows everything omniscient, holy and sinless, just, loving, merciful and faithful. And he is God. Amen. Now the Word was made flesh and dread among us. Turn over to flippage chapter number two. Totally. This is our third passage of scripture. It is interesting. What brother Frank, where he turned this morning he turned to Isaiah, chapter 14, verses twelve through 15. And you remember in the Sunday Colossus he talked about the five hour wheels of Satan. Satan lifted himself up. Lucifer lifted himself up. He was filled with pride. He was a creative being. See, there’s only one that’s been eternal. That’s God. God the Father, God the Son of God the Holy Spirit. Lucifer was a created being. He was created to worship God Almighty, but he was given a free will. Sound familiar? We were created to worship God Almighty. We were given a free will. Lucifer lifted himself up in pride in his beauty and he became a cursed be. He still has access to Heaven, but one of these days he will be kicked out of Heaven and no more able to return. He said, I will ascend into heaven. I will exalt my throne. I will sit upon the mount, in the congregation, in the side of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. I will be like the most high he’s lifting himself up in pride. Would you throw us in there? Would you not get lifted up in pride? You know who we are resembling? Resembling the devil and not the Lord Jesus Christ. Because look at the cross reference of this. Philippians, chapter two, verse number five. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. Now stop. Who’s jesus Christ. Who just get done saying is Jesus. He’s God. Right? Junior Church. Answer it’s. Okay. He’s gone. He’s got to make sure we know that he who is God. Verse number six, who being in the form of God found it not worried to be equal with God. He is God, but made himself of no reputation is the exact opposite of what the devil did. The Devil said, I will lift myself up in pride. He lifted himself up. Jesus said, I know who I am, but I’m humbling myself and we’ll go get to the kicker here in a minute. I thought that Roberto beak. With God, who made himself a no reputation, it took upon him the former servant. It was made in the likeness of men and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself. He humbled himself. He lay it aside. His glory took upon him to rover flesh. He became man while still being God, aware of the things around him. He had the free will. He could have given him temptation just like you and I. But he had no sin nature in him because he was born of a virgin. His body was prepared in the womb of mary was a virgin, but his blood came from the Holy Spirit of God. But he made a damsel of reputation, took upon him the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in fascinas a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death. Even the death of the cross. He hasn’t exalted himself. And it’s amazing. Wonder of wonders, the Son of God would hunger Himself, come to this earth, take upon Him the robber flesh, grow up like you and I grow up, be submitted to his mother and his foster father as they raised Him, and try to teach Him, although Jesus knows everything. I would hate to be the second child, wouldn’t you? Be compared to the Lord Jesus Christ? But he would do that. He lay it aside, his glory, typically in the form of a servant wife, so he could die on the cross for you and for me. He loved us so much. No wonder the Bible says for the great love wherewith he loved us, there’s no greater love than that. Verse number nine, wherefore God talking about the Father also hath highly exalted to Him, and given Him a name which is above every name, that is the name of Jesus. Every knee should bow things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And at every time she confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. God the Father has exalted the name of Jesus Christ because he humbled himself. Okay. He emptied Himself of his glory, set that aside and became man. While still being God, he voluntarily took the lower place, a place of humility and submission to God the Father. God the son. God the father. And he was submitted to the father. He lived in obedience to the Father. He humming himself. And listen, here’s the amazing thing. Today to this very day, seated at the right hand of the Father is the God man, Christ Jesus. He still has the body that he took, that was, his hands were pierced, his side was pierced, his feet were pierced. He has a scar still today in a glorified, resurrected body in Heaven, and he literally, bodily is coming again. Now how is this subordination? Is this submission to the Father’s co equal, equal with God the Father? And yet he humbled Himself and submitted Himself to the Father’s will so he could die on the cross for you and me. How long is this going to take place? Well, from what we understand the Bible, until the end of the world. Then come at the end when he shall have delivered up the kingdom, and he the Son shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father. 1524. Wonder of wonders isn’t it that’s amazing how God would humble Himself? For sinners such as you and me, the love of God reaches the greatest sinner. Roman Star Eight but God committed his love toward us, and that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. First number 20, chapter five says, more than Lord entered that the offense might abound, but where sin abounded, grace did much more abound. Hebrews One, chapter six, it says, shall we continue in sin to the grace of God may abound. God forbid, how should the weave to sin live any longer? They’re in know you’re not that to whom you sin. His servants yard. I’m messing it up now, but we’re not to live any longer in sin. We’ve been freed from sin because Jesus took upon him the sins of the whole world. He takes the death for every man. The Bible said every man, every man, woman born girl, nobody will go to a devil’s hell saying that no one died or cared for their soul because Jesus hummed Himself and tasted death for every man, every person. The person that dies and goes to devil’s hell does it because they rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ. One corinthians 611. It says in such for some of you. Remember that message we talked? And a list of some things fornicators adulterers, drunken, abusers of themselves with mankind. It says and such for some of you. But that label’s gone. You’ve got a new label now. Your new label is washed. You’ve been cleansed. It says you’ve got another new label. You’re sanctified. You’re set apart for the Master’s use. You were set apart in the world for the Devil’s use as a drug. Or you were set apart for the bartenders use, for the manufacturer’s use. They make a killing off of people that get addicted to that drug. And you’re set apart for the devil’s use. You’re set apart for that use. But now no more. You may have been little use to God before, but now that you’re saved, you’re washed, you’re cleansed, you’re set apart for the Master’s use, you’re sanctified. You’re made holy, not by your good works, but by Jesus Christ. What he did his righteousness. You sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. Hebrews Two Nine but we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor. He was made lower. Now he’s lifted up. He’s crowned with glory and honor. He will rule and reign the earth, get this in Satan’s domain for a thousand years when Satan will be locked up. Then he’s going to be let loose. But he’s going to be defeated. And he’s going to be kicked in the lake of fire forever and ever. And we’ll be with the Lord forever when he calls us. Then we see Jesus, who is made a little lower than angels for the sake of death, crowned with glory and honor. That he, by the grace of God, should taste death for every man. Think about that. What love that is that God would show towards you and me. Who are we? Who are you? Who am I? Nothing but sinners say by the grace of God. There’s some other things here, and we may go just a little bit over, but I think we need to COVID it. Episodes. Chapter Number Two. I don’t get everybody back on Sunday night, so I got to get you while you’re here. Amen. So hang on. Phase of chapter number two, verse one. We read it. We’re going to look at it, some of it again. You had the quickened who were dead and trespasses and sins. That was what we were. But now we have been quickened, made alive. Verse number five. Quickened together with Christ in one John, chapter four, verse 19, it says, we love Him because he first loved us. I hope you and I could just get a glimpse sometime of the great love, the great sacrifice that God Himself made to come to earth to die on the cross for you and me. That great love reaches the most hardened sinner if they’re but yield to Him. There’s enough grace for every sin that’s been committed. The sin that sends a person to hell is unbelief in the Lord Jesus Christ. For that great love should also motivate you and me to serve our Lord and Savior. One john three verse one. Behold what manner of love the Father hath has sowed upon us that we should be called the sons of God and that’s not yet appear we shall be. But we know that when he shall appear, we shall be like Him. We shall see him as he is. He’s love not that we love God, but that he loved us and sent His Son to be propitiation for our sins. First John, those earmarks of a believer. There’s no coverage real quick. It’s in one John walking in fellowship with God and one with another. Do you have a walk with God? Are you walking with God? Any walk with God? He was walking with God throughout the Bible. Do you have fellowship with God? Do you know that your sins have been forgiven? That’s an earmark of a believer. That’s family resemblance. You can tell Jed and Josh are mine. You can tell their Racials because they act like their mother, but you can tell their mind because of their looks. Just kidding. It’s probably the other way around, but there’s a resemblance. A family resemblance. There should be a family resemblance for the Christian. A Christian should walk like Jesus. Walk. Not perfect. We’re not perfect. We’re going to miss that. We’re going to sin, but we should not want to sin. Should not premeditate and practice that sin. Walking in fashion with God, keeping his commandments is a sign that we love the Lord. Do we listen to him? Listen. There’s times we’ve getting away from the Lord. I would hate to count how many times I’ve been away from God. I’m no longer walking with Him. I’m still saved, still child of God. But I’ve wanted to fall off. I’m not in close fellowship with Him. He can’t communicate with me, not because he left, but because I left. But there’s a way back for everybody that goes astray. There’s a way back, loving God above leaving the world. He said, loving up the things of the world for the first John. Let me read it. First John, chapter two. Loving up the world. These are the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the less of the flesh and the less of the eyes and the pot of life is not of the Father, but is of the world. The closer, the more time we spend with the Lord, as Bella Jim was saying, the more time we spend with God, and he feeds us and we yield to Him. The less time we’ll spend loving the world, the less time we’ll spend watching college football, right? Less time we’ll spend doing other things in the world that may not be wrong, but take away from what we should be doing, from what God wants us to do, abiding into Him. One John 227 28 loving the brethren. I know I passed from death in life because I love the brethren. Do we love one another? One John 316 he laid down his life for us, and we have to lay down our lives for the brethren, the witness of the Spirit of God dwelling within us. One John 324 and one John 413. The Bible says that we can know that we have eternal life. I’m not going to ask you to raise your hand, but I hope each one of you know that. You know that. You know that heavens your home, that Jesus has saved you and forgiven you of your sins. You can know. The Bible says we can know. One John five, verse 13. I’m going to read that verse to you. These things have I written unto you that believe in the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that you have eternal life and that you may believe in the name of the Son of God. If you don’t know that this morning, you can know it before you leave. We’ll take the Bible. We’ll show you. So how do you and I express our love to our Savior? That we should express, for he’s done for us? Same thing. We had a fellowship with Him. We had to have time. We walk with Him, we spend time with Him. We keep his commandments. The Bible says his commandments are not grievous, though they’re not hard. We love Him above loving the world. We abide in him. We love one another, and then we worship Him. When we get a clear glimpse of what Jesus has done for us, it makes all the difference in the world we see after I tell you the moment that we’re going to see Jesus in the air and we realize that that’s him, that’s the one who died for me, who loved me and gave his life’s blood for me, we’re going. To be beside ourselves. There will be a multitude of emotions that come to us. We may weep, we may rejoice. We’re going to be with Him. But one of the things that’s going to come to many of us, if not all of us, are going to be regret. Say, Lord, I wish I would have given you more. I don’t want to be ashamed when he sees me, when he comes. It could be today. It could be today. Say all, preacher. I’ve heard that all my life, that the Lord’s coming back. Well, he is coming. He’s coming back. He has promised over and over in his word that he’s coming. You can look around, you can see signs, but we’re not looking for signs. You see things happening where the stage is being set for the one world government, no doubt about it. You take how fragile our current dollar is, for instance, and how things are going digital so fast I can’t keep up. I don’t understand some of this new digital stuff that’s going on. I don’t think those are operating completely understand it either, but that’s beside the point. But just so many things are being put in place where it would not be difficult for the Antichrist to set Himself up. But we’re not looking for signs. We’re not looking for the Antichrist. We’re looking for the real Christ. We’re looking for the Lord Jesus Christ. And one of these days, there’s going to be a sound of a trumpet be the voice of the archangel. He’s going to say, come up hither, and we’re going to go up thither. We’re going to rise and rejoice and shout and weep and be with the Lord, be with our loved ones forever. Only if you know the Lord as your Savior. And we’re going to see, I think, when he shows us those scars in his hand, we’ll say, wow, what great love that was for me. Say thank you, Lord. I don’t understand it, but thank you, Lord. So while we have the opportunity right now, what are we doing for the Lord? What are you doing for the Lord, you say? Well, that’s up to the preacher. Well, there are some things that the preacher needs to do, but there are some things that the people need to do, too. We all ought to be busy about serving the Lord. He’s called us all to do something. Let’s do it. Let’s stand head bowed and eyes closed. I have a time of invitation. It means the altar is open. You can come and pray. Maybe the Lord spoke your heart about doing something for Him. Let me ask you this. How many you know you’re saved? You just slip up your head. Good. You can put your hands down. Does anybody here say, Preacher, I’m not sure that I’m saved. Will you pray for me? I see one hand. Anybody else? Not sure that I’m sad. Just pray for me now. Pray for you. I promise I will. That’s you this morning. Don’t leave without getting that settled. Jesus can save you right here this morning. You can get that assurance this morning. Won’t you come? The altar will take the Bible, show you how to be saved, how to get that assurance. Maybe Lord spoke to your heart in some other way. Where are you? Coming. Pray, father in heaven, Lord, as we give this service back to you. Pray that you’re that I know you’re working on hearts. I believe you are. Well, I know the preacher may not have captured everyone’s attention. I don’t have the vocabulary or the skill to do that, but, Lord, I pray that Your word would capture the hearts of those that are here. Lord, show them their need. If there’s someone here that needs to be saved or get the assurance of salvation, lord, would you help them to step out of the aisle and come? Give them the courage to step. Give them the faith to believe. Have them put their faith and trust in you and make sure their salvation in order. For someone here that’s been walking afar from you, maybe not been where they should be, where would you happen to get it right this morning? Just surrender their will to Your will, Father. Those of us that may have been coming faithfully in body but have been backsliding in heart, would you awaken us up to our need, Father? Have Your will and way in our hearts, in our lives, Father, with my heart too. We ask all this in Jesus name. Amen. Play. Keep playing. One more verse. If you need to come, you come. All right, you can look this way. Thank you for being here this morning. It’s good to see each one of you. And I know some of you need to get out quickly after prayer, and y’all can do that. Thank you for being here. Offering plates are in the back. Ties and missions go in the offering plates. And in the basket is for the love offering for Brother Joel’s, Sister Terry. Okay, and so you pray about what God and have you given it will be there tonight as well, and then be back tonight. And who’s to say what God will give us tonight? Okay, so you’ll be back tonight. Good to have you here this morning. Looking for somebody to dismiss us in prayer? Brother Frank, will you dismiss us in prayer, please?
