It was a wonderful time at church this past week as we honored our senior adults. We are blessed to have so many of our older adults who are being used of God to bless our church. Many of them take a very active role in the ministries that our church offers. The intercessory prayers, the wisdom, the willingness to serve and the perseverance they display in serving the Lord through the church is a testimony to their faith and commitment.
Sharing God’s word from Exodus 17 was a joy as God spoke to us through His word. This passage teaches us that God has us on a journey that leads us to encounter the lost and hopeless world. We see from the scripture that God uses people of all ages to accomplish His will in the church. We all need each other and we must love, support, and rely on each other to be victorious in our efforts to reach people for Christ.
God used Moses, a senior citizen, to provide leadership for His people. He used young men to go out and fight the battles with the enemy. The young men who were warriors were supported by the example of Moses going out with them and standing on the hill, holding up the rod of God to encourage the young men in the battle and to ask for God’s deliverance.
We are blessed here at Wilmer Baptist to have people of all ages who are willing to be involved in meaningful ministry. From high school and college age adults, young adults, middle age, and senior adults, we need each other. May God continue to bless us as we embrace and appreciate each other and use our gifts to bring glory to God.
