"I know my master's voice!.."
With this powerful word, Rev. Rory Cobbs, Pastor of New Beginings Worship center In Bellevue, Nebraska, closed the 2017 conference for the World Bible Way Fellowship. Rory spoke of how God brought them from a small group meeting in his living room, to the point of using every room in his house, and ending up owning an entire building in downtown. The key was knowing how to follow God's direction in our lives, and knowing our Master's voice.
The conference opened Wednesday, June 22nd at Harvest Time Revival Center in Waco, Texas. Pastor Daron Farmer started with an explosive sermon on following God's directions, even if it leads you through a fiery furnace, as it did with the Hebrew children coming out better than they went in, discovering the Lord was with them when things got the hottest. The good folks at Harvest Time showed their love for their pastor and their Church by enthusiastically supporting the conference.
Thursday June 23rd, Rev. Bryan Chance from Bible Way Tabernacle in Balch Springs, Texas shared the responsibility of the Shepards to open the gate, giving direction, to one way to one God.
Mary Ann Cassidy led the afternoon service sharing her lifetime of experience as a missionary to many nations. Mary Ann spoke of the importance of obedience, saying its important that we follow God's lead rather than place self imposed limits as to what we are willing to do and where we are willing to go. As with everyone who spoke, Mary Ann shared the importance of seeking God's direction in our lives. The theme of direction was given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit to Dr. Howe several months ago as he sought God's guidance on the upcoming conference. Most important is that we understand God's direction in our lives by knowing our Master's voice.
