The Clock is Ticking

I found this message on CHURCHLEADERS. This powerful and loving message was written by Lance Witt of Replenish Ministries in January of 2021. It still holds true to this day as we start a new year. I need to read Mr. Witt’s book, we all do! I have been thinking about my death much of late. I have officiated many funerals in the last 3 1/2 years, and I have lost so many good freinds….it really has made me think of my death. The message I have received from the Lord is, ‘finish strong for Me.” YES! I will do my best Lord! I just shake my head that I will be 67 this year on July 4th. Grandpa Caraway, such a wonderful Christian, always told me, “the older you get Dwayne, time will speed up.” Now I know Grandpa. FYI: Folks back home started calling me Dewey and it stuck!

I always say in my messages at funerals, “heaven is a prepared place, are you prepared for heaven?”

Life Verse for Pastor Dewey Moede

“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” -Acts 20:24

Lance Witt:

We just wrapped up another year.  If you are like me, there have been many blessings this past year but as I look back there are some things I wish I had done differently.

But it is a gift of God’s favor and grace that lying before us is another year.  2021 is a clean canvas that God puts in our hands and His help we can paint a beautiful picture this coming year.

The Bible says that the Lord has numbered our days, but he has never revealed his spreadsheet.  I don’t know the number of my days and you don’t know the number of your days.  But, this much I can tell you for sure, your number is less than it was yesterday.

Everyone’s going to die, but no one wants to talk about it. Living well as Christians requires that we rediscover the art of dying well.

By C. Ben Mitchell

Everyone’s going to die, but no one wants to talk about it. Even Christians, of all people, would rather not discuss death and dying. But this isn’t the way it should be, and it’s not the way it’s always been.

For many generations, men, women, and children died at home. Their bodies were prepared at home, usually in their own bed. Their family, friends, and neighbors would mourn for them in a wake at home before their bodies were accompanied to the church for a memorial service and then to the cemetery for a graveside committal. Death was as much a part of the Christian life as birth. Most churches even had cemeteries adjacent to the church where people would lay their loved ones to rest. And “homecoming” was typically a Sunday for remembering those who died that year. More Here

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament are the inerrant, inspired, and infallible Word of God.
God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life.
We believe there is only one God, and He has chosen to reveal Himself
as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
