Sunnyvale News

 The last Sunday in May was much like the previous - just a great day. Weather was beautiful and the attendance was up. On Saturday I had polled our Sunday School teacher's and all but one were ready for classes to open up on June 7. So that is our goal for next Sunday to go back to Sunday School at 9:45 - Worship at 10:30 and Sunday Night at 6 p.m.. Our choir is still low in number with just one man in it for the last 3 weeks. Low in number but great in Spirit. Janice always does a great job in song selection. Terry Miller had special music singing "Who Am I". Scripture was I Corinthians 16:13,14 addressing our current world craziness with that in Jesus and Paul's day. So Paul addresses the Christians of his day to be strong and stand like men. What is that like. It is to have Courage, Commitment, Sacrifice, and Service. Drafted in U.S. Army in 1968 basic training taught me discipline and self confidence. Trusting that when I met the enemy I would have Courage and do my part. Commitment is to entrust something or someone into their care. As Christians we know about that because of our faith in Christ. Sacrifice is thinking and acting on behalf of others more than yourself. I think it took courage for our 2 newest astronauts to blast off into space on Saturday. However I can't say the same about the looter's in our major cities because one man died seemingly unjustified. In 1969 I was sent on a mission with several from our communications group. We had quite a convoy when we left the post but as we traveled teams would peel off to their assigned area. Then there was two and we came to our assigned area. Myself a Sgt. a Specialist, and a private. The private got sick and sent back to post. Another team leader got sick with only 2 privates on that team so the Capt. ordered by Specialist to go take that team. Yep that left me for 36 hours. Then the Capt. sent a man that just got in the country a day before. The 3 day mission turned into a 30 day mission. No washed clothes, bathing out of a helmet, rationing of food which was already C-rations. That was sacrifice. However, we done our duty. That's the same way it is to be with the Church. We each have to do our duty, our part if we our going to see the mission of Christ accomplished. What is His mission? To seek and to save those which are lost. In II Timothy 4:7 Paul wrote I have fought a good fight I have finished my course, I have kept the faith; Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. If your not ready for that you need to get ready today.
