Sunday Morning 1/23/2011

God is so very good.  I had a sermon all prepared for Sunday and then wound up changing the whole thing Saturday night/Sunday morning.  I say that so you will understand why there are no notes on this week’s message post.  The message is taken primarily from the text of Matthew 6:5-15 for those who like to follow along in your Bibles (which I highly encourage by the way).  May God richly bless you through His Word.
