What an awesome night at FBC in Reserve! Thank You Lord! The folks loved Shari Hardway! It is such a blessing to be connected to Shari’s ministry, The Jesus Chick. I was so super blessed to baptize Eddilu Brown! God bless you sister! Eddilu, you are such a precious soul…a shining light for Jesus…. Thank you Reserve for such a great turn out! PTL!
It was an awesome night in our Lord, a night of unity!
Several years ago my Hero of Faith, Pastor Don Kimbro of Albuquerque said to me, “The Church in America is struggling because it is not baptizing enough people, not raising them up to be mature Christians” It is so important to help people mature in Christ, to be by their side.
Last night during our Revival at FBC in Reserve I preached Heaven and Hell. It is not preached enough! The Church has lost much of its salt. Billy Graham never preached a sermon without preaching Heaven, Hell, Sin, Repentance, Forgiveness…….I preached a bit on the wrath of God……not many want to hear that! Not many want to read Revelation. Too many want their ‘ears tickled’ and too many Pastors accommodate them.
Stand firm in the love of Jesus! Amen! Stand firm, but in love, do not compromise the Word of God.
Shari Johnson, The Jesus Chick, wrote this about last night…….
It’s hard to believe you can be 1400 miles away from home and yet feel as if you’re apart of a community. Reserve is one such town. I believe last nights revival meeting was filled with folks desiring to hear from the Spirit of God. What joy it was to see the fellowship and watch as new converts were excited about life in their walk with Christ. They received the word that Pastor Dewey had for them (that was hard truth) with an open heart. We (Gloria and I) felt the power of the Spirit of God with Pastor Dewey and his leadership. We know why he does what what he does and we’re so honored to play a part!
God Bless you Sister!
By the way, Shari and Gloria will be at FBC in Glenwood tonight at 6pm.
