Welcome to our Web Page and to the ROBC Family.
I hope that this year you have made a commitment to our Lord to gather together for Worship, Bible Study, Prayer, Fellowship, Ministry and Mission. How are you doing with this commitment?
It is so very easy to find an excuse why you shouldn’t be in church or Bible Study. It is so very easy to find an excuse to justify why you don’t have time to get involved.
I came across this poem and I think it speaks to many of us:
IN MY PLACE
Last Sunday morning ‘twas the devil that said,
Now don’t get up, just lie there in bed.
Don’t go to Sunday School, it would do you no good.
And you know you’ve said you’d be in bed if you could.
You’ve worked hard all week, and the weather is so hot,
So why don’t you just stay in this lovely cool spot?
Then deep down in my heart, I could hear a sweet voice,
And I know it was Jesus, saying “make me your choice.”
Then I said to the devil, I won’t let you win.
You just want to make me commit a great sin.
So I got up real quick, there was work I must do.
I’d show that old tempter I’d be at Sunday School too.
What a lesson was taught by our teacher so dear.
I said to myself, “I’m so glad I’m here.”
I received a great blessing and the day was made bright.
My heart was made lighter, because I did what was right.
So I thank the Dear Master for giving me grace
To say “no” to the devil and to be in my place.
Then I told that old tempter, “Here’s one you can’t rule,
For I’m serving my Master, and I’ll go to Sunday School!”
Make plans now to gather together this Sunday!
In His Love, Pastor Randy
