Fantastic! Today being a High Day, we had two services, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Dr. Meredith took the morning service, in which he discussed the Church’s long history and the role it plays in proclaiming the gospel of the Kingdom of God today, as well as the roles that Christians today will play during the reign of Christ and the saints in serving all humanity. He discussed how those who lead in the Millennium must know how to apply God’s law with an attitude of truly loving your neighbor as yourself. Actually, if I went into all he discussed I would be here all night, as it was a rather densely packed sermon, but suffice it to say that it was fantastic, and said he would conclude his line of thought during his final speaking session with us before flying to Florida to serve at the Feast there. Looking forward to it!
Mr. Millich took the second service with a powerful message on how we have the opportunity to taste the goodness of the Kingdom to come by the blessings that God manifests in His Church and among His people today. I thought it was a marvelous way to both remind us of the powerful blessings we have now, but also to help us picture how awe-inspiring it will be then. It was really was an inspiring message, and I am very thankful for the guest speakers that we have here in Branson this year!
(And I should mention that the sermonette speakers weren’t chopped liver! 🙂 Mr. West spoke about how much it means to know that we will inherit “all things” and Mr. Ciesielka challenged us to consider which group of people we would choose to be, given certain groups described in prophecy. Good stuff all around!)
Wonderful first day, and I can’t wait for tomorrow — well, I can wait long enough to get some shut eye, but no longer than that!
