Hallelujah! I say that for not only what God has been doing but also for finally being able to post something on my blogpage! It seems it takes forever every time I want to post something. Maybe that's why I am so slow in posting, I probably don't want to go through all the hassel to finally get to the page! But anyway, here I am and since my last post of the first part of December, we have again experienced some first at Life Pointe Church. One of the biggest "firsts" was the fact my son James Andrew Moser was ordained on December 12, 2012! So on Wednesday night, 12/12/12, I had the privilege and blessing of preaching my own son's ordination service. It was both touching and an honor to speak and share some things with those who showed us for the service. I don't get a chance to brag on Andy too much and he doesn't want me to very much either, but this was good to show Andy that we all are very proud of him, love him, and that God is going to take care of him even when things are tough. And then our Life Pointe Christmas program was last week, so I was appreciative of having the largest number of people ever, at Life Pointe...59 which is now our new record! God is good. And now here is it New Year's Eve and the edge of starting a new year! It is my Mom's birthday so I think of her and I also wonder just what all God is going to do and has planned for us this upcoming year! Who knows, but as the Bible says, the righteous will live by faith! so may the New Year 2013, begin!
December 4, 2012
Here I am again waiting far too long before I write a post on the amzing things God is doing at Life Pointe Church! My last post was on September 20 and here is it December 4th! I can't believe I have waited 2 and half months to write something! First of all, on my last post I said I was looking forward to baptizing 8 or 9 people....turns out it was....10 people! 10 People!! I can remember when we first started Life Pointe that I thought "if I can just baptize one person...." and here it is 2 years later that I was blessed to baptize 10 people! As many as we had baptized up to that point!! That now makes a total of 20 people since June of 2011; let's see that's 20 people in 15 months! God is amazing! I know we are not suppose to talk about numbers too much because it's the Lord's work that is important not necessarily the numbers, but while numbers are the most important, I sure don't want to hesitate in giving God all the credit in continuing to show His hand upon Life Pointe. We couldn't do it without His Hand of blessing on us....so I think it's ok to be excited especially since there is no doubt where the growth and numbers are coming from! It's God! The next blessing I wanted to make sure and record so as I later look back on this blog page that I will remember when God started giving us more and more people...we have now been averaging over 40 people for the past 2 months with 45 people being there this past Sunday. We when had over 40 people a week or two, I thought, "my, it would be great to have this happen more and "wow" it did...as a matter of fact it happened about 5 or 6 weeks in a row before our attendance went below 30 so God is again blessing us and bringing in people who had never heard of Life Pointe Church a few weeks ago or a few months ago. We have had a visitor this past Sunday and then the Sunday before that...and it just seems like those who attend are now bringing their friends and what better way to grow a church than by our own folks telling their friends how good God is blessing us. I use to wonder, "when are we going to see us grow,?" and lo and behold it is happening right before my eyes and there is just no telling what number of people we are going to end up with. I also know that if God does nothing else than what He has done already but I am so glad He is not finished with us yet and I know that He's got much more in store for us! We just fnished a series on Missions with my neighbor Steve Love coming up with His family this past Sunday sharing what his goal is and where He is planningn to go by next June. It was a good Sunday for all of us! So now, it's Christmas...so may we all see Jesus in a way that we have never seen Him before. I love you Jesus, thank you so much for blessing us at Life Pointe!
