But some continue seeking all by straying away from God. y went off in Agra just as Sunday School thought it was "cool". Others wondered if Brother Roger would need a flashlight to see with. By opening doors and sun through windows, everything worked out great. Why should we be surprised, with God in charge'? Jesse Howard sang "Lord I'm Coming Home" with Janene Fisher at the piano. Thanks to both of them. This morning, Brother Roger used John 3:1-21, about Nicodemus being told by Jesus how to be born again. Without the spiritual birth, one cannot enter into heaven. Man is born of the water, our physical birth. All most believe in Jesus, that he is the one and only son of God, that Jesus died on the cross, was buried and arose after 3 days, defeating death and having taken our sins to the cross with him. We can have ours erased if we are born of the spirit. So admit, believe and commit your life to the Lord Jesus Christ today. Tonight Brother Roger's message the "Three Musts's of Gos- pel". Iohn 3:7. Sinners must be born again. John 3"i4. Jesus the savior must be lifted up and look to him for salvation. John 3:30, a servant (all Christians are servants) must work to increase Jesus and decrease themselves. Continue to pray for all who attend camps every where. Restoration Fellowship by Debbie Shipman Do you expect obedience from your children? Why is it impor- tant to you'? The reasons i want my children to mind (obey) me include the following: Obedience shows respect. I know what is best for them (usually). I have something I need done and I want it done now. I have heard my kids say words to the effect of "I can't wait until I grow up. Adults get to do whatever they want to do." In fact I remember thinking the same thing. I laugh and say "yeah, wait and see how much fun it is when you get to do whatever you want." Granted, we adults don't have to do anything at all unless of course we want to keep the electricity on and food in the fridge. God expects obedience from His children (whether we are adults or not). I suspect His reasons are very similar to mine. He wants His children to learn to respect Him and others in authority. He (always!) knows what is best for His kids. He has something he needs done and He wants it done now. Isaiah 45:12 tells us "It is I who made the earth and created man- kind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts." Who can argue that the Creator deserves our respect? Only a fool. We understand that our Heavenly Father always knows what is best for us because he knows everything about us, even to the num- ber of hairs on our heads. We can rest assured He is acting in our best interests because we know He loved us enough to let His son Jesus die for us. Sometimes God wants to obedience because He has something He needs done and He wants us to do it for Him. In my morning prayers I have asked God to use me and then later found I didn't like the assignment He chose for me. I have heard in my heart that He wants me to witness to a certain person and said "oh, not that. I do want to serve you Lord, but can't you think of something else I can do." God loves a cheerful giver (2Cor.9:7) and giving our obedience to God makes Him happy. Do you agree? Just think how happy you would be if you only had to ask your kids one time to clean their rooms! I'd probably take the boys out for ice cream for a reward. What kind of reward do you think our Father has for us if we mind him the first time'? Have a great week!
