Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us,and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us... Heb 12:1
God put us in a race when He saved us from our sins,
And He gives the strength and courage so that each one wins
Around us are many examples of those who have run this race,
And our goal should at least be this, please Lord just help us keep pace.
In this pursuit God has placed us, one thing stands out for sure,
We must run this race with patience if we intend to endure. (RP)
Today is Iola Boyer's memorial service. We never know how many will attend, because she spent most of her life on foreign soil. Some will be present in the service today who have never met her. Pastor Decker, Ken Pollock and I will be conducting the service, with others also participating. It will be a Christ-honoring service and special time to remember this dear saint who served Him faithfully. Thanks for praying.
