Thoughts from the weekend
I was very thankful the snow held off (the little that we received) until yesterday afternoon.
As one of the pastors at our church - I am prayerfully "glued" to the weather channel from Friday evening through Sunday morning - watching as to whether the snow will prohibit people from coming to church or not. :) :)
I just wanted everyone to know how grateful I am to have a spouse who loves me, supports me and always encourages me.
I'll tell you what, gang, we are genuinely gaining some spiritual momentum in our church!
It is exciting!
I am thrilled!
Can I give you what is almost becoming a continual word?
Invite someone to one of our Sunday morning services - this Sunday.
As we learned yesterday: You are significant. You are needed in the body of Christ! You can, with one positive word, change someone's life!
Is it me - or is the NFL Pro Bowl a waste of time and money?
I would guess that the recognition of being recognized by their peers as being All Pro is enough.
My prediction for this coming Sunday?
Seattle 24 - New England 21.
You read it here first.
Worship is spending time with God - recognizing Him for who He is.
Praise is spending time with God - thanking him for what he does.
We need both.
With the constant drip of negativity that comes from the world - let's all be a positive force of encouragement in a complaining world.
Can I share something with you "out of the blue"? We here in America are following the historical pattern of Ancient Rome (an empire which fell) - and the biblical pattern of the negative domino effect found in Romans 1:18-25.
Could it be that God's most important desire for us is to turn from our wicked ways and follow Him?
I know that you agree with me in saying, "Maranatha, Even so, come Lord Jesus."
Let me give you a life changing thought: Prayer. Tuesday evening, January 27. Stone Church Chapel. 6:30 P.M. to 7:30 P.M.
Love you all.......
