“A WORD FROM BRO. JOE”
Hey, Summit Family,
I pray you have had a wonderful “Valentine’s Week” filled with LOTS of LOVE!! As many of you know, it’s a birthday week for me. I really can’t remember my first birthday but I will never forget my second, when I was “born again”! The overwhelming thing I remember about that experience is the affect it had on my life concerning my newfound love for people, other than myself. That was a BIG change for Joe Wright! My life had always been mostly about me. Now, I found myself much more concerned about others. That change over the next few months was instrumental in leading me into the full-time preaching ministry with an emphasis on evangelism! The main reason I write to you about this today is that we have just started a new study on Sunday mornings about the way GOD USES ORDINARY PEOPLE like you and me. The greatest way He wants to use us is to LOVE other people! Please “check” your love level, regularly! Maybe you’re never heard it called that but that is exactly what “Christ living in us” should raise; our LOVE LEVEL! No one ever loved like Jesus! If others are ever going to see Jesus in us it has to be demonstrated by our love for them! Give that serious thought as you examine your attitudes and actions; your daily behavior!
Don’t forget that we are having our CONGREGATIONAL MEETING this coming Sunday immediately following our morning worship service. Pastor John and I will be presenting the 2019 Financial Budget already approved by Summit’s Executive Committee. We are looking for your questions, input, and support. Please plan on staying for what we think will be a wonderful time we’ll spend, together, planning for the future! “TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!” Love you, and love being one of your pastors! See you Sunday, Bro. Joe
