A Word From Pastor John
The theme this week is the calling of God on our lives to continue to trust him more and more. In chapter 4 of the book of James, the Bible talks about our tendency to cast judgment on people and also to trust in our own plans. We are reminded that God's plans are the best plans; and instead of judging people's hearts and motives we should pray for them and entrust them to God, who is the ultimate judge. May God continue to grow you in Holiness this week.

Before you read God’s Word today, seek His help with these 5 prayers:
1. God, give me wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. 2. God, let any knowledge I gain serve to help me love You and others more, and not puff me up. 3. God, help me see something new about You I've never seen before. 4. God, correct any lies I believe about You or anything I misunderstand. 5. God, direct my steps according to Your Word.

Fill out a volunteer placement card in the front lobby lobby or comment about how you'd like to help on our welcome card on Sunday and put it in with the offering.
We've all been there.
We've bumped into someone who's out of sync with the way we think people should be. It's not that they're evil or profane; they don't harm us or our families. It might just be their mannerisms, or their different way of thinking, or their unusual style of dress. It turns us off.
And that person may be a Christian brother or sister.
In Ephesians 4:2 we read, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”
For a few years now I've been working on seeing the world of people like a big, beautiful tapestry. I might pick out one thread in a tapestry and think, “Ooh, I don't like that color.” But that thread could be just the one that makes part of the tapestry “pop.”
In the same way, God has woven people together, both in the church and in society, in the way that HE sees fit. Those we see as different may be just the threads that bring part of the human tapestry to life. May we appreciate and embrace them, and trust in God's expert craftsmanship.
