This morning at 11am at FBC in Reserve I will be sharing on the Christian Home: “Ten Commandments for the Home.” The family unit is so very, very special as you know. The family was ordained by God before He established any other institution, even before the establishment of government and the church. Many families in America have been ripped apart by many evil things. The breakdown of the American family unit is one of the many reasons of the breakdown of America.
Windom Minnesota is where our Mom and Dad, Wally and Ruth Moede built our Christian foundation. (I am pictured at the house where I lived in Windom, Minnesota and in front of the tree my Daddy planted when I was born on July 4th, 1956) Mom and and Dad are in heaven now but it is such an awesome blessing that God worked it out that Dave and Denise have Mom and Dad’s home! When I look at the home I think of all of blessings handed down to me, it brings me to tears and drives to me to preach Jesus and share His ways and love with all. Miss you Dave and Denise and all of Windom, the community of Windom is deep in my heart and soul and prayers everyday! Love, Dewey and Sharon. Sister Deb lives in Reading, Minnesota and brother Daryl lives in Rochester, Minnesota. Miss you all! I should add that my grandparents, Dena Moede, Grandpa Moede had passed away before I was born, Grandpa Floyd and Grandma Lena Caraway, the American Lutheran Church, my wonderful Sunday School teachers, the Windom School system, my awesome teachers, and the role models all through out the town helped raise me up! I love how Dave and Denise have taken care of our ‘birth home’! Dad and Mom always said to take care of what God gives you, be a good steward!
Also at at FBC in Reserve we will be serving be serving the Lord’s Supper.
Jesus’ words during the Last Supper about the unleavened bread and the cup echo what He had said after He fed the 5,000: “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. . . . I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. . . . Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink” (John 6:35, 51, 54–55). Salvation comes through Christ and the sacrifice of His physical body on the cross.
Also during the Last Supper, Jesus taught the principles of servanthood and forgiveness as He washed His disciples’ feet: “The greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves” (Luke 22:26–27; John 13:1–20).
If you do not have a Church home, please join us! Love in Jesus to you all!
