Highland Heights collecting supplies for school ministry
Broadway Baptist ChurchOnce when I was in eighth grade my big brother had me to fill his truck with gas for him. While working the pumps at the 4S Fina station in San Angelo a man drove up and said, "Fill her up with this!" as he pointed to a pump. I said, "With diesel, sir?" To which he replied, "Yep, fill her up!" So I did just that. I put in 15 gallons of diesel. My brother drove about two blocks, turned around, came back and asked what I had done to his truck. Needless to say, he didn't have a diesel engine and that gas motor didn't cotton to well to the wrong gas. My brother ended up siphoning out the diesel gas and filling it with regular gas. Boy, he was mad at me. Two things stand out: 1. It really wasn't my fault. The man told me to do it. 2. You can't run on the wrong gas. Too many Christians are trying to run on the wrong gas, because instead of studying the Word for themselves they are taking another person’s word for it. Do you want your life to run well? 1. Study the Word of God. 2. Be fueled by prayer. 3. Listen to the Holy Spirit, who will teach, guide, direct and keep your engine clean!Broadway Baptist Church would like to invite you to come and worship with us this Sunday at 710 E. Third Street.
