We always thank God for you...


" We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ." - 1 Thess. 1:2-3 (NIV 2011)
 
I imagine as Paul was writing these words that he was reflecting on conversations, relationships, events, and maybe even some challenges that he had been through with his brothers and sisters in Christ.  It was because of that past that he felt so strongly and could pen such passionate words.  Paul was able to encourage his audience with words that were heartfelt, not empty or simply lip service.  I don't think that anyone would question the sincerity of Paul or his words.
 
This past Sunday, FBC Hooks was privileged to celebrate 75 years of ministry in Hooks.  With a celebration like this comes an opportunity to reflect, much like Paul.  I would like to thank those that took time to celebrate and reflect with us.  Thank you to all that were a part through the preparation of the celebration itself.  Thank you to those that were able to speak, sing, and give personal testimonies.  Thank you to those that were able to attend, giving up time at their home church to celebrate with us.  Thank you to MSBC, a sister church that sent a beautiful arrangement in celebration of this day.  Thank you, most of all, to our Lord for allow His children to celebrate this day in a way that honored Him.
 
In all of this, when I think back to our celebration, I thank God for you.  May God bless each and every one!
In His Service,
Bro. Grant
