Update from Lud and Mur, October, ‘20

October 24th, 2020

As October begins to wind down we have much to be thankful for even in the midst of the political quagmire, ongoing health pandemic and all of the other things we might individually be facing. I remember when talking to my mother shortly before her death I asked her for her favorite Bible verse. Her answer was, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” and He promises to never leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:3-8). That truth should steady and sustain us no matter what we might face today (remember Jesus said in Matthew 6:34, “do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”) The Psalmist was right when he said in Psalm 118:24, “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
I’m not worrying about a couple of speaking engagements I have, but I would ask prayer for God to help others through what He will enable me to say: Sunday, October 25 at Grace Evangelical Bible Church, Newbury, 10am; Sunday, November 1, Fowler’s Mill Church on Mayfield Rd., 10am; and a class on how to study the Bible at Fellowship Bible Church, November 19, 6:45pm. Pray also for Mur as she teaches the Women’s Bible study on Wednesdays.
On a recent trip I had the joy of meeting with a man that has been blessed by my radio program. Also, I was contacted by a man in California who, as a teenager 60 years ago, came to Christ in our first Church. He found information on the internet by googling “Lud Golz.” We talked for an hour on the phone. It is such an encouragement hearing how God is working in his life and also in his sister’s life and their families. Two examples of what Jesus referred to as “fruit that will last” (John 15:16).
