The Preached Word – Rev. Melvin Jones
Sermon Title: "Ain't Nobody Got Time for That"
Scripture: Philippines 3:13
Guest preacher Rev. Melvin Jones (Atlanta, GA) came with God’s word on his lips. From Philippians to Romans, he definitely gave us something to think about.
The three main verses he reviewed were:
Philippians 3:13 - "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before."
1 Corinthians 10:13 - "... God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it."
Romans 8:31 - “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us”
Join us each Sunday at 10 a.m. and hear another timely, and inspiring, message.
