Brother Tracy Mayfield’s morning message was taken from 1 Peter 11:14 & 16 and titled “A Life of Purity.” Why is this important? We are called by God to be as holy as He is holy. Pure cannot come from impure. It starts at home. Children become impure by what their parents allow. We must commit to live a pure life. In looking at 2 Samuel 11:1-17 we can learn from David. David was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was supposed to be with his troops in battle. Don’t feed your soul with the wrong things. Don’t surround yourself with the wrong people. Don’t avoid the people who will hold you accountable for your wrong doings. In 1 Corinthians 15:33 we are told don’t be bound with unbelievers. Witness to them but don’t hang out with them. Uriah was determined to do what was right. He was willing to stand firm. David responded the wrong way. People try to cover up their sin. Teach your children to live a pure life. Teach purity in your family. Purity goes with you for the rest of your life.
Sunday evening testimony service was led by Kaleb Skinner reading from Matthew 5:14-15. Brother Tracy preached from 1 John 2:9-12. Accept that you are forgiven and do the same for others. We will never be perfect but we are forgiven. God has called us to be the best we can be. Don’t just get by. Put your love into action.
