Today was another long but blessed Sunday. The worship services were rich at Shiloh today. Praise God for another wonderful Lord’s Day.
Our Women’s Chorus sung in our two morning worship services. Thank God for all the women who served us by leading us in musical praise today.
I taught our mass Bible Study Fellowship today. I did an exposition of 1 Peter 2:1-3 – “A Call To Spiritual Growth.”
In our worship services, I continued my exposition of Philippians today with a message on Philippians 1:14-18, which I entitled, “Facing Friendly Fire.”
Next Sunday’s text: Philippians 1:19-21.
Praise God for those who were saved and added to the church today.
This afternoon, I spoke at the William M. Raines High School’s Baccalaureate Service for the graduating class of 2009. This was a first for me. High schools in Los Angeles do not have these types of services, as far as I know. I was honored to host this service and speak to the graduating class. May the good seed fall on good ground.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this:‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions. – Mark 12:28-34 Armies win…
