Cadillac, MI has an annual event called Back to the Bricks. It’s a car show that closes a two to three block portion of Mitchell Street over a weekend in June. People flock to see the cars and talk to the other automobile enthusiasts.
Pastor Mike’s sermon yesterday was The Potter and the Clay part 2. Last Sunday God sent Jeremiah down to the potter’s barn to learn a lesson or two. Jeremiah is called “the weeping prophet” and I can identify with him and brother Job. Both men were faithful, loved God but became discouraged by what they were experiencing. How human is that! We’ve all been there, done that at times, right? I know I have.
Our congregation on Sunday morning can’t hold a candle to the crowd attending Back to the Bricks! We offer prayer, singing, message, fellowship to all……for an hour on Sunday morning. You can join in and come back on Wednesday evenings to learn more about the Tribulation. You can make great friends, learn about God’s Holy Word, wonderful Christian fellowship and be a part of community missions. This could take two to three hours per week…..not two full days
As in a car show, shall we say.
Back to the Potter (God) and the clay (us). Pastor Mike sang one verse of “Have Thine Own Way Lord. Have thine own way. You are the Potter, I am the clay. Mold me and make me after thy will. While I am waiting; Yielded and still.” Bricks are made of clay. God has a purpose for each of us. If we want to fulfill that purpose we have to be in harmony with God and spend time reading His Word. Just think….He gave His Word to us! He speaks to us through the Bible. We can conquer and overcome anything….confusion, tragedy, pain, loneliness, depression…anything if we abide with and in Him.
