“He’s Depending on You”
An ancient tale tells of Jesus’s ascension into Heaven, where He is met by the angel Gabriel, who asked him, “What plans have you made to ensure the truth you brought to earth will spread throughout the world?” Jesus answered, “I called some fishermen, tax collectors and others to walk along with me as I did my Father’s will.” “Yes, I know about them, what are your other plans?” Jesus replied, “I taught Peter, James and John about God’s kingdom as I healed and preached to the multitudes.” Gabriel said, “Surely you must have other plans!”
For better or worse, you and I are the ones He is depending on in today’s world to strengthen the Kingdom of God through His Christian people and churches. Can He depend on us?
Anytime someone does a kindness for others, they could be acting as God’s angel unaware that God has sent them to answer someone’s prayer.
Angels unaware are everywhere waiting for God to send them in answer to someone’s prayer. Thank you, God, for sending all the kind, wonderful people (angels in the world) and Lord I pray, please let me be an angel unaware for someone else somehow, some- day.
Potts Camp United Methodist Church celebrated its 100th birthday on Oct. 15, 1989. Bishop Robert Morgan brought the message that day. Over 500 people attended from many states. Former pastors attended the Potts Camp Church that day and spoke to the crowd.
Dinner was served. Gifts were given in memory of friends. My brother, the late Rev. Charles L. Potts, gave the history of the church. He was my little brother. I miss him.
The Baptist Church in Potts Camp closed their doors and attended the celebration. I helped serve the large crowd. It was a wonderful day! Mitch Stone Jr. was the special song leader. He was a great singer.
