New Friendship Baptist pastor speaks at Vespers
Tuesday, August 7, 2012
About 80 residents turned out for the Moniteau County Fair Vespers Service Sunday evening, Aug. 5, at the Fairgrounds Main Arena. Those present were thankful for the brief respite in the daily temperatures, in the mid-90's rather than the 100 or so common in recent weeks. The event was sponsored by the California Ministerial Alliance.
Scot Thomson, Pastor of Friendship Baptist Church, California, presented the sermon, titled "Sabbath Rest," based on Heb. 4:1-13.
According to Thomson, Heb. 3 set the context for Heb. 4 by relating it to the Hebrew Exodus from Egypt. He spoke of God entering His Sabbath Rest and still being in that Sabbath Rest because the work of Creation was completed and it was time to begin forming a relationship with His creation.
