“HERE AM I LORD, SEND ME” (Sunday October 7, 2018) Mr. Paul Beltz, speaking

“Here Am I Lord Send Me” For what reason? To glorify God
Preached by Mr. Paul Beltz, Guest Speaker
First Baptist Church Earlville, NY Sunday October 7, 2018

The engine that powers missions is when true believers give God the honor and respect due Him.

-Psalm 67:3-7
-Psalm 97: 1-6
-Psalm 104:33-34

Missions will be an outcome of our burning desire to worship and glorify God.

What is your attitude about God? Is it only Savior, Protector, the God who forgives?

He is all that but also the Lord God Creator. The One Who creates also owns!

TODAY’S “SPECIAL”: “The Long-Winded Visiting Preacher”
A visiting minister was very long-winded. Worse, every time he would make a good point during his sermon and a member of the congregation responded with “Amen” or “That’s right, preacher” he would get wound up even more and launch into another lengthy discourse.
Finally, the host pastor started responding to every few sentences with “Amen, Pharaoh!” The guest minister wasn’t sure what that meant, but after several more “Amen, Pharaoh!’s” he finally concluded his very lengthy sermon.
After the service concluded and the congregation had left, the visiting minister turned to his host and asked, “What exactly did you mean when you said “Amen, Pharaoh?”
His host replied, “I was telling you to let my people go!”

TODAY’S “SPECIAL”: “An English Teacher Funny”
When I was in grade 7, I used to ask a lot of questions.
One day, I asked my English Teacher, “Why do we ignore some letters in pronunciation? For example, the letter H in “Hour”, “Honor”, etc.?
My English Teacher said, “We are not ignoring them, they’re considered silent.” I was even more confused!
During the lunch break, my Teacher gave me her packed lunch and asked me to heat it in the Cafeteria. I ate all the food and returned her the empty container.
My English Teacher asked, “What happened? I told you to go and heat my food. You are returning me an empty container.”
I replied, “Ma’am, I thought “H” was silent.”

TODAY’S “SPECIAL”: “An Offering Funny”
A little child in church for the first time watched as the ushers passed the offering plates.
When they neared the pew where he sat, the youngster piped up so that everyone could hear: “Don’t pay for me Daddy, I’m under five.”
