“Blessed To Be A Blessing” (1 Timothy 6:17-19; Ephesians 4:8)
Eddie Adams – Pastor, November 26, 2017
Calvary Baptist Church
The Bible makes it clear that we are to be good stewards of the blessings God has blessed us with. God measures our faithfulness. Today we will talk about the key to being good and faithful stewards of the blessings of God…

Unlikely . . .
This past Sunday we had our Kids Ministry Christmas presentation. We still do it the old fashion way; kids dress up like animals, pull out the old bath robes for the wise men and bed sheets for the angels. It is old school, grandparents and families gather to watch and take pictures and we always have a few that “make the play”. It is unlikely that we have any one make a decision to give their life to the Lord from such an event. Unlikely. Sunday was an unlikely Sunday as one of the young adults who was brought by a friend prayed to invite Jesus into her life. Unlikely.
How often do we use our family and friends who are in for the holidays as a reason to not attend. We don’t want to interrupt their visit or make them feel uncomfortable so we conform. I hope we can work on that especially during these holidays. Who knows you just might experience an “unlikely” for them.
See you at the candlelight service this Saturday.
December 24th – Christmas Eve Candlelight Service @ 8 P.M.

If we are talking Baseball it is the bottom of the ninth, footbali it is the final two minutes . . . but if we are talking church, well it is always the last month of the year.
This means it is our crunch time. It is the time we look back over our shoulder and see what was done. How often we took advantage and won. How many prayers did we pray, how many lessons or sermons did we hear, how much money did we give, how many friends did we invite,and what actually changed in our life toward being more like Christ.
Make this time count – it is all you have. I will be seeing you this Sunday as we are running the two-minute drill.
