We have a great day of worship at Shiloh on this first Sunday of the new year!

Grateful for all the guests who worshiped with us today.

Alice Martin, a longtime and faithful member of MSMBC in Los Angeles worshiped at Shiloh today. Crystal and I were shocked and happy to see her.

Our worship team was really on point today. Great job!

Special Note: This Sunday was the start of our new Partners In Prayer ministry, consisting of teams of intercessors who pray for the worship services during the services on Sunday. Thanks to West Wilson for his leadership and diligence. May this tribe of intercessors increase. In happens after prayer!

It is always a blessing to celebrate the Lord’s Table!

I preached a “devotion” message from Colossians 3:15-17 that I called “Three Priorities for a New Beginning.”

The three priorities I emphasized in the text were the peace of Christ (v. 15), the word of Christ (v. 16), and the name of Christ (v. 17).

I need not get hoarse preaching today. Good deal.

Praise God for those who were saved and added to the church today.

Next week begins Prayer Emphasis Week at Shiloh. I plan to preach on prayer over the next two weeks. What a way to start the new year!

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles today 14-13.

The Jaguars were beat down by the Texans 17-34 and with the Colts win are out of the playoffs.

I wonder how many coaches will get the axe on Black Monday?

If there is anything better than the NFL regular season it is the NFL playoffs.
