Sunday, January 10, 2010 – Rick opened our Pegasus Worship Service
welcoming all the new Pegasus residents. He defined the purpose of the
Lockhart Pegasus Ministry team which is to present the gospel to the
boys. To do our best to introduce them to Jesus Christ and the Word of
God, to be faithful in prayer on their behalf.
Cindy led the boys in singing; “Here we
are to Worship”, “Mighty to Save”, “I can only Imagine”, “My savior, My God”
and “Amazing Grace”.
Everyone was pleased to have Ben return to
minister to the boys. He talked about the New Year from a secular view
and the fact that every day for him is a new year freshen by the newness of the
Spirit. Everyday is a new beginning thanks to the blood of Jesus Christ
shed for us. He talked about his own conversion at 8 years old and what a
wonderful experience that was as a man of God laid his hands on him and he
received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and the anointing of the Holy
He moved with grace from speaking to
singing “The Longer I Serve Him”, “Sweeter as the Days go by” and “I Keep
Falling in Love with Jesus”.
Ben closed his portion of the morning
worship service by encouraging us to look for a new vision for Pegasus.
Our morning speaker was Luis Amaya whose
subject was “Praise”. He talked of his own salvation experience in
October 1983 where he was attending church with a baby in his arms and
drunk. How when God touch him with the “New Birth” all that drunkenness
left and instead of being full of alcohol he became full of the joy of the
Lord. He went home and through away every liquor bottle in his
home. Anyone looking at his trash would have thought it was the remains
of a big party instead of a sinful life.
His text was Psalm 150 Psalm:
(New Living Translation)
1 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
him in his mighty heaven!
2 Praise him for his mighty works;
praise his unequaled greatness!
3 Praise him with a blast of the ram’s horn;
him with the lyre and harp!
4 Praise him with the tambourine and dancing;
praise him with strings and flutes!
5 Praise him with a clash of cymbals;
him with loud clanging cymbals.
6 Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
He spoke of the blessings of the
Lord who is worthy to be praised and the need to keep his word because His
blessings are conditional.
Ken closed the service having the boys
recite the 23rd Psalm.
