Wake Up World, It's Festival Time

Genesis 8:22

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Sometimes the Holy Spirit comes right down from Heaven, or wherever it is that He presides and weaves His way into my heart, plucking out the weary and sad parts and filling my being with the never-ending love of Christ. Needless to say after a recent church service at my home church, Pleasant Ridge Baptist, State Road, N.C., I am filled to overflowing.

 

We all long for peace, for comfort, and the reassuring truth that there’s more to this old life than what meets the eye. The…
