NEW HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH The congregation of New Hope Baptist Church would like to in- vite the entire surround- ing commUnities to the church. It is located between Florala and Opp off of Hwy. 331, Go north from Florala ap- proximately 10 miles, turn left on New Hope Rd. (CR 20), 1 mile on Our minds want to wander. What they settle on in their journey from one destination to an- other is intriguing and telling. The Bible says, "Old men dream dreams and young men see visions." But it does not tell what the dreams or visions are. It depends on the individual. One day a psalmist unveiled both his dream and his vision: "Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked." We often hear phrases about "spending qual- ity time with loved ones" or "living a quality life." But unless we define quality in scriptural terms, "quality" may not be what "quality" is. Our psalmist wants us to know that even standing at the edge of the temple is better than being inside the tent of a wicked person. Whey is this so? It is because of God Himselfl Simply being in His presence is a reward. For the psalmist it is not the beauty of the place but, the beauty of a Person. "God is a sun and a shield," he declares, referring to the absolute glory of God as a person and protector of those who serve Him. With His love upon us and His glory around us, we can be assured that He will not withhold any good things from us if we walk with Him and live lives that are blameless - or lives of integrity. But along our way 'in this walk with Him, He will give us "grace and glory." Glory refers to His "grace" that He gives to those who are His own. It is His grace that saves us with the faith He gives us because of His love for us. Visit us at II I I n Ill I I I I I III II II I Illl] I left. Call (334) 493-7489, for information.
