Our meeting with Billy is now fully underway. Sunday we were blessed with three great lessons from God’s word, with another added Monday evening, all of them intended to help us overcome things that have shipwrecked the faith of many.

Sunday morning during our regular class time brother Randolph taught on the importance of being present. When we are absent we miss out on so many blessings regardless of why we are absent. With strength that comes from God and encouragement from one another we can overcome the habit of being absent.
Perhaps my favorite lesson was Overcoming Worldliness, presented Sunday evening. When we got in the van to come home, the kids were talking about their favorite points made in the lesson. Satan is cunning, and if we are not careful he will have us wrapped up in this world so tight that our faith is choked out. This is what Jesus warned about it Matthew 13:22. Here are the three applications Billy made in conclusion to help us overcome the sin of worldliness:
– Be humble enough to change
– Be diligent in service
– Live like Christ will return

Take the time to listen carefully to these lessons, as well as the others that are posted, so that together we can overcome the things that would keep us from our God!

If you are in the area, come and be with us during the remaining assemblies; if you want to find encouragement from God’s word you will not be disappointed.
