Monday was a pretty emotional day with Bro. Bill Houston's funeral. I intended to write about it this morning, but I suppose I am still trying to process it. The words are not ready to flow yet.
It is enough to say that God blessed during the funeral service in an amazing way. I am thrilled that we were able to attend and to be a small part. Please continue to pray for his dear wife and family.
Pastor Gary Lee read a version of something Bro. Bill wrote many years ago and has added to and adapted several times. Evidently he added some to it as recently as a couple of months ago.
I typed this version out for Bro. Bill over 15 years ago while we were living in Kansas and he and Sis. Darien were there preaching for us. This will give you a little insight into Bro. Bill's great mind.
Please read and enjoy.
II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
