            Roads are everywhere in the United States.  There are gravel roads, black-topped roads, paved roads; there are freeways, highway systems, ramps, roundabouts.  And now, with computers, an information super highway is available.  These roads are all designed to help you arrive at your destination (or information).  However, there is another road very seldom talked about.  No other road can compare to it; “small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matt 7:13-14)  More of us should be discussing and hunting this road, because it is the most important road in our lives.


            It is hard to believe the month of November is here, and the holiday season will soon be here. Sadly, the prayer list at GVCC is growing.  Any time of the year is bad to be ill or have problems, but it is especially sad during the holidays.  Also, Daylight Saving Time is ending; don’t forget to turn your clocks back on Saturday night.


            Isaiah 46:9-11 was the scripture Bro Tim used in his message entitled “Whose Story?”  God has a plan, and He is in control.  Part of God’s plan was sending His Son, Jesus, to Earth.  We need to understand history is being changed.  God knew this would happen, and he ordained the Jewish nation to set aside certain celebrations to help them remember.  Jesus set up one that we follow to this day.  We call it Communion, and the Christian Church celebrates it every Sunday.  Does this nation remember God?  We should give thanks to God for all of the many blessings this country has been given.


            The Bible challenge question:  What caused Saul to be so angry with David? (1 Samuel 18:6-9)
