The Body...

There are things that I have not yet discussed here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It's been a busy last few days for me. 

Last Thursday evening, I spent my time at Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church (WEBC).  It was Bible study night!

And, with yesterday being our Lord's day, I worshipped at WEBC, along with a loving group of fellow believers.

Before heading into the sanctuary, I made my way into the kitchen of the fellowship hall, to place my contribution into the fridge.  This was for a preplanned luncheon, together. 

It was actually a pig-roast celebration, with the roasted pig being brought into the fellowship hall.  This gathering was meant to honour and celebrate a couple of people's birthdays, in addition to two (2) couples celebrating wedding anniversaries. 

One thing I haven't yet mentioned is the fact that on Saturday afternoon, I attended WEBC for an event I had never before attended.  A prayer revival concert!

Three (3) other churches joined us in this glorious time of prayer, music and fellowship!

Our pastor, along with two (2) other pastors spoke, giving exhortations.  Not sermons, but exhortations relating to prayer. 

Of course, if you were in attendance, you would know that at least one (1) pastor's exhortation was so lengthy, it could easily have been considered a sermon.  Sorry, I won't say who this was!  :)

It was such an enjoyable time, honouring God with brothers and sisters in the Lord, from various parts of Essex County!

The music was wonderful. 

A woman from one of our visiting churches sang a solo.  A man from another visiting church sang solo as well.  However, for him it was acapella/a capella!

It did my heart good to hear those people sing.  Just as it did to listen to choir groups, as well!

Ahhh... what a blessed evening we spent together!

Afterwards, we celebrated as one family, in the fellowship hall, sharing a delicious meal!  We, at WEBC, provided the food and beverages for all who joined us for a time of good food, and fellowship.

For me, it was wonderful to have met up and spent time with a couple of people that I hadn't seen in a very long time! 

What a blessing it was, being able to spend time with fellow Christians.  Brothers and sisters in the Lord!

This brought to mind the fact that we are all part of the family of God.  Even if we don't always gather, together.

Just as God told us in 1 Corinthians 12:27, "Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular."

Yes, we are all members in the body of Christ.

We may not all be the same.  Nor, would we have the same talents and or contribution methods.  Still, we are all part of the family of God!

What a blessing!  Thank You, Lord!

I pray that it was a blessing to others, as well.  After all, we are meant to edify each other, lifting each other up in prayer.

My brothers and sisters in the Lord, please know that I pray for you.  Always.


Until next time...
