Lay Pastors Weekly 05-15-16

Answer the Call of the Lord!!!
I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch out of My hand. John 10:28
I recommend reading John 10.
Thomas Chisholm was born in a log cabin in Franklin, Kentucky. His education was sparse, yet at age sixteen he began teaching in the one-room schoolhouse he attended as a child. Four years later the newspaper, The Franklin Advocate offered him a job. At age twenty-seven Thomas found Christ. At age thirty seven he applied for ordination in the Methodist Church and he pastured a church in Scottsville, Kentucky for a year until his health collapsed. He wrote poems for personal therapy. He could not read music. He wrote the hymn “Living for Jesus” at C. Harold Lowden’s request. He also wrote the hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” He lived in the Methodist Home for the Aged in his sunset years and remained honest and shy. 
My prayer for the week:
Dear Lord, Help us to answer Your call to be in Your service. We are not worthy but Your Holy Spirit leading us so we able to bring others to know and serve You. Praise God. Amen
