USA – Purity Service, September 17, 2016
Thanks to the family and friends of these 6 young people thatjoined with Rabecca and committed to a life of purity. Rabecca had previously met with them and their families and had sized each on for the rings that they received tonight. Paul wrote to Timothy: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” Thanks to Rabecca who had the vision and courage to present this opportunity to these young people and their families. Each one came forward and made a covenant promise in the presence of all these witnesses that they would stay pure until they were married. After signing their covenant promise, each one was fitted with their own ring. What an awesome privilege and responsibility as fellow believers to be invited to pray and encourage them to fulfill their promise. Thanks to the Lyman Baptist church family that allowed us to use their beautiful facility for the service and a great potluck dinner and fellowship afterwards. Years ago I watched a western movie that I really enjoyed called the “Magnificent Seven”, but these seven really surpassed and have now become my “Magnificent Seven”. We are believing that many more will be making this decision in the near future and we will be blessed to have many more “examples” to encourage and strengthen all of us, young or old.
