Comfort...

Yesterday, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I wrote about how awesome our God is.  And, He is!

As I mentioned I would, I went to worship with the same church group I worshipped with, last Sunday.  What a wonderful time it was!

Being our Lord's day, going to worship is a true blessing.  To God, to be sure.  But, also, to me.

The pastor and his wife, were there this week. 

It did my heart good to see them, once again.  It had been quite a while. 

My pastor friend from long ago reminded me that we had seen each other, when I was helping out with another church group, while still worshipping at the church I used to attend. 

To be honest, I hadn't recalled when exactly I had seen him last.  It was certainly a lot sooner than it had been since I had met up with his wife!

In any case, it did my heart good to be welcomed at this church family location. 

I thank not just my pastor friend and his wife, but I also thank those who welcomed me whole-heartedly.  Truth be told, I felt very comfortable, there.

Thank You, Lord!

Once again, I found the music to be wonderful.  Just as He had done last week, I found I knew each and every piece of music that we sang, together.

To say I felt comfortable worshipping there, would be an understatement!

In addition to praying for other people's needs, my pastor friend prayed for mine also, even though I am only a visitor and not a member.  Thank you, my friend.  May God bless you!

I must say that he preached a good sermon, edifying us... just as God told us to do in 1 Thessalonians 5:11, "Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do."

Of course, this is what a pastor is supposed to do!

Pastors are supposed to educate those in the congregation, while preaching.  I was grateful to see that my friend had done this.

You see, there are many pastors around, who do not provide instruction to those they are ministering to.

Unfortunately, there are many false preachers/teachers out there.  People who only speak about life, and maybe mention Jesus, but who never truly give Biblical moral teaching.

For sure, those who worship regularly at the church I attended yesterday, are truly blessed.

And, so was I.


Until next time...
