The mother of one our church attenders visits every so often and she was with us this last Sunday. As she left she encouraged me with a compliment. “I love visiting, there is so much meat in your sermons.”
Now I am glad she notices this, but not because I have done anything special. In fact my preaching has been described as “dense” by others (you pick your definition). But it is the Word that is rich.
We have no hope beyond what is revealed in Scripture so that is where we dine, it is where we get fed for life.
It’s not too late for you to get a good meal. Open the Bible, hear the very word of God. Stock up on your protein daily.
There you will meet Jesus. The gracious and loving King.
It is always encouraging to hear Matt Chandler share how his church is pressing into the gifts of the Spirit, and clinging to the Word of God. There is much from The Village Church, their intentionality as elders, and the testimonies they have, that all of us can glean from.
Here Matt sits down with the guys form The Remnant Radio to talk about it all. It is a good hour-long conversation of his thinking and story of pursuing the gifts of the Spirit.
As I am preparing a sermon for Sunday on Awkward Worship I have been struck by this song from Influence Music. “We breathe to worship you.” It is what we are made for, to worship. Our very breath is purposed for it. Let’s get after it!
