Mount Olive Church of God

Brother Greg opened our service’s today with Acts 3:19. Our Revival last week with Sister Linda Baughtman  was a Great time of Spiritual Refreshing!

Our Adult Sunday School lesson today was  “ Trust God’s Infinite Grace (Manasseh) 2 King’s 21:6, 2 Chronicles 33:1-20, Ezekiel 18:21-23,Roman’s 2:4-11. There is no one , no matter what they’ve done beyond God’s willingness to forgive. Jesus doesn’t just patch our live’s up He give’s us a clean slate. Once we’ve tasted of God and the Greatness of His Salvation we will never be satisfied without Him !

Brother Ronnie’s message this morning was from Matthew 21:8-16 “Great Hosanna Day.” When we praise God it is a great weapon against our enemy. There is alway’s something we can praise God for everyday ! Luke 19:40 tell’s us if these should hold their peace the stone’s would immediately cry out ! Let us never allow a stone to Praise Him in our place .

Brother Ronnie’s message tonight was from Luke 17:32 “Remember Lot’s Wife.” It would have been hard not to look back Mrs. Lot was leaving some of her family and  probably most of her possession’s in Sodom. It can be simple for us to miss simple instruction’s from God ! God want’s us to use our talent’s, grow stronger ; not stay the same as when first saved .
