The Sunday School spirit was ignited by Christ and passed by Him to the disciples. The Sunday School is a modern title for an ancient and  apostolic service to the Church. It is a school for disciples. It is a school with a textbook – the Bible.

Embrace the Vision

Praise the Lord for Sunday School! I’m excited about getting to work for the Lord. I am so blessed to be able to work with the Sunday School in Alabama. It’s such a blessing to me.

We had a wonderful State Convention and Assembly. Praise the Lord I was able to attend. I was blessed with many things: Brother James Horne and family returning as our State Overseer, seeing Brother Jeremy Wallace divinely healed, good Church of God messages, spiritual singing, souls saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost, then the fellowship of my brothers and sisters—it was just a piece of heaven. It was so good I just didn’t want to come home. I wanted to stay with everybody and enjoy the blessings of the Lord. Also, I got my pastor back at Goodwater. I feel very blessed in my soul being able to worship again with Brother Ted Cogburn. There was a time I didn’t think it would happen again, but God is GOOD! Amen! I feel good in my soul. I’m so very blessed to see and feel what I do, seeing what God has done. Looking forward to what He has in store for The Church of God this year. I have to agree with what Brother A. J. Tomlinson said: “I see victory on top of victory for The Church of God.”

I have some things on my heart and mind I feel I need to share. There are states with wildfires burning hundreds of acres, the devastation of hurricanes Harvey and Irma—there are so many people affected by this destruction. God’s mercy brings hope. “And I said, My strength and my hope is perished from theLord: Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of theLord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. TheLordis my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. TheLordgood unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him” (Lam. 3:18-25). What hope can we find in the midst of such devastation? When sin and the judgment it brings have dashed to the ground everything beautiful and good, what is left? One thing. Only the mercy of God. Where there is life, there is HOPE. The lives of Jeremiah and the other survivors testify that God had not totally abandoned His people. By His mercy alone they were not destroyed. At this time of desolation Jeremiah knew where to turn. Not to human strength—it had failed. Not to the temple—it lay in ruins. Not to the law—it testified against them. Not to self-righteousness—it was as filthy rags. Jeremiah found hope in the unfailing, ever-renewing compassions of God. He didn’t know when or now, but he believed God’s mercy would rebuild something good out of the wreckage of judgment. As the Israelites of old, people today prefer to close their eyes to the horror of sin and pretend judgment can be avoided or delayed forever. In the hymn Amazing Grace, the songwriter wrote, “’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear.” He recognized that conviction of sin and judgment are necessary steps to repentance and salvation. Without understanding and awareness of God’s mercy, a true understanding of our sinful state would produce only despair. “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Rom. 5:20). Amen! The cross of Jesus is both the place of judgment upon sin and the fountain of mercy for sinners. Let’s pray, pray, pray for our country. God bless America again. We must pray for the towns, cities, states, countries, and the people, that God will still have mercy and spare their lives. We must have hope in God! He is still in control. We must turn to Him. Praise the Lord for Sunday School. Love y’all!
