Revival prompts change for many

Dear Editor: The opportunity to be resurrected from darkness is an opportunity for new life. From youth to adults, no one was left aside for the chance of a lifetime to be “revived” at the Rochelle Baptist Church revival service this past weekend. Tears fell as souls were revived from such an event that has already prompted change in other lives. Sunday, May 6, I witnessed four that gave their lives to God and allowed Him to wash away their sins during the baptism. Tears came upon Brother Barr towards the end of the church service as well as others let tears fall because they all knew that rebirth had begun for those who were lost. To see so many give themselves to the Lord truly was a miracle in the community, especially when our area has those who are upon the hold of the devil like drug addiction. God is always around, and He will always be there to help those who are lost or need guidance in their lives. The greatest event was hearing my wife explain the miracles that were “happening” in front of her eyes. She was so happy that others were being given the opportunities that so many before her were given’the chance of rebirth. In closing, I recently read a verse that stuck in my heart that I thought is wise to live by: Matthew 6: 14-15: “If you forgive others the wrongs they have done to you, your Father in heaven will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.” Thanks so much to everyone at Brady ISD, my church and family, my wife and my Papa and Grandma.
