He’s Calling Your Name by Joe Barnett

Go, tell his disciples and Peter. Mark 16:7

When the sound of the rooster’s crow filled Peter’s ears, remorse filled Peter’s heart, and “he broke down and wept”.

Peter’s weekend was drenched in tears. On Friday, his Lord had gone to the cross carrying the grief of his denial. There was nothing Peter could do to right his wrong.

Then came Sunday. Women trudged to the tomb, where the angel told them, “He has risen…go, tell his disciples and Peter…”

The Lord singled out Peter – called his name. He wasn’t thinking of his apostasy, but of his agony; reaching out to comfort him, not censure him.

He is your Savior, too – not looking to castigate and condemn, but to forgive and fortify. He knows your name and your need. Listen! He’s calling your name.

Don’t judge yourself by who you’ve been, but by who you’re becoming.

  • Ray Moody: Galveston, TX “Born on the Island 1959. Just relocated, awaiting wife’s arrival from school. Looking for a new church. Just had surgery resulting from injuries sustained during Hurricane Harvey. Inez Jones is another member with a new car, compliments of Harvey. She was attending her brother’s wedding when the flooding took hers. She and John were rescued by boat! Connie and Don Powell had no damage in Friendswood, nor did Shelly and Steve Kelly. However, Shelly and Steve have opened their home to a family with six children. We applaud them for their hospitality during this difficult time. Potpourri! We missed Jim Withers last Sunday who was experiencing some health issues. Last week Mariana was honored at Abilene Christian University for her Christian service as a missionary to Austria and Ireland. Her last 15 years have been spent in service with Come Before Winter. There were two separate ceremonies. ACU’s College of Biblical Studies presented her with their “Towel Award” representing the servant attitude of a Christian. Come Before Winter created the Mariana McGinty Long Fund in her honor. This fund will be used to support those women attending the renewals with their travel funds. She also received a beautiful crystal miniature world globe that marks her travels with CBW. She’s promised to show these gifts when she visits in early December.

  • Events Honoring Mariana Long!
  • Current financial reports are available on the tables at the rear of the auditorium. A special note, benevolence and missions accounted for over 42% of our expenditures.

Peace Be With You by Joe Barnett

You were called to peace. Colossians 3:15

In Jesus’ last meeting with his disciples before his death, he said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you…do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14: 27).

On the Sunday evening following his crucifixion, Jesus suddenly appeared in the room where those disciples were huddled behind locked doors. “Peace be with you,” he said (John 20:19).

The next Sunday, he showed up there again. “Peace be with you,” he said (John 20:26).

Why this repeated promise of peace? Because he knew they were paralyzed with fear and uncertainty. Their deepest need was peace and calm.

If you’re finding peace elusive, raise your hand.

God knows your anxieties. Tune out other voices and listen to him: “Peace be with you.”

Inner peace is not dependent on outer circumstances.

Your Strength and Your Song by Joe Barnett

The Lord is my strength and my song. Isaiah 12:2

“God is my salvation,” wrote Isaiah; “I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song.”

Your emotions are raw from the chafing manacles of fear. Fear that the love of your life won’t survive the surgeon’s scalpel. Fear that downsizing will land you in the dismissal queue. Or…name your fear.

But you possess the key to unlock the fetters of fear: God’s power! He “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20).

Don’t miss that last phrase – his power is at work within you.

You need no other reason to “trust and not be afraid!”

Neither limp or whimper. Trust his strength. Sing your song.

The solution to your fear is his strength, not yours.

You’re the Best at Something by Joe Barnett

We are God’s workmanship, created…to do good works,

“Find what you like to do, and do it so well that people will pay you to do it.”

That old chestnut is not just good advice; it’s a God-given game plan.

God mapped your course before you even showed up. It’s up to you to find and follow it.

How do you do that? By looking at what you’re good at; your unique skills and abilities: in a nutshell, by focusing on your strengths.

Are you hiding behind your perceived weaknesses?

I didn’t get an education.

I didn’t get the breaks.

It’s too late to start.

Whatever you add to that list will be something lots of people have conquered on their march to successful and meaningful lives.

Find and follow your strengths. You’re good at something. In fact…

You are the best there is at something.

Allen’s Notes on Harvey!

Kimberly and Jerry Edwards escaped harm. Went to Beaumont to assist her mother. No power and rain coming into mother’s home. Got stranded in Beaumont. . . . Bob and Ann Roland had to be rescued by boat from their home in Baytown. Their area received the highest rainfall in the storm ( 51+ Inches) . . . . Sara Campbell’s high rise was used as a rescue center by Jean Nichols and Joan Mertens.   Wendy Clayton, who lives in the high rise, served them hot tea (at the proper temperature) and scones while the storm raged. Wendy is from Wales and knows how to observe “Tea Time”. . . .Unrelated to “Harvey”, Mike Wortham had emergency surgery (inflamed appendix crisis) a few days before the storm. He is doing well, thanks to Amys TLC.

People thought Allen was crazy for coming to the Island on Friday before the storm struck the Texas coast. He was one of three vehicles on I-45 South crossing the Causeway onto the Island. Lanes heading north to Houston for refuge were bumper to bumper. . . . Joe and Dean Knox went to Temple to escape the storm. Should of stayed home! . . . .No power at Chris and Emily’s house. They took refuge in a motel in Texas City. Children thought they were on a vacation. . . . Shirley Bush Henry’s bank was flooded. Off work for a few days.  Armando Cardenas, not to be restrained by the storm, led singing at Avenue K Church of Christ last Sunday. There were 3 members in attendance.

The Isbells’ daughter Carla and Paul Stultz arrived before ”Harvey”, not knowing a storm was imminent! Carla was instrumental in restoring the building after hurricane “ IKE”.

The Strand businesses were flooded, but Galveston is resilient. Likely, many are open this Labor Day weekend. . . The last hurricane destroyed our building. Unable to use for two years.   Not a drop of water this time!

Everyone has his or her memories of this historic flood. But, Noah would say, “You call this a flood!”
