Sunday Nite (on a Monday Morning)

Good Monday morning to all of my friends! Can I just say how blessed I feel to experience 2 beautiful, sun-filled mornings in a row… We haven't had enough of it lately – great change. This will be a quick one as I'm scheduled to be in a meeting in 33 mins 

  • Really, really great day at Hyde Park yesterday morning. iServe lighting up the parking lot with excellence, worship/music doing a wonderful job, great message from Pastor, many great conversations.
  • 5 people made decisions to trust Jesus as Forgiver of sin and Leader of their lives yesterday – doesn't that just lift you today?
  • Pastor really challenged us to become part of a small group. If you don't find a way to be in some sort of Christ-based community you will find it hard to stay consistent in your walk.
  • With that in mind we have many options for you. Every week our classes are listed in our worship guide. If you have any questions about the different groups contact me and if I can't answer them I can point you to one who can.
  • We understand that that because of serving obligations Sunday morning may not be the best time to get involved in a small group. There are off-campus options and Wednesday nite options.
  • Speaking of Wednesday nites: We have 2 NEW CLASSES starting this Wednesday: Elizabeth Pait will be hosting a women's class – I will be hosting an "everybody" class. You can get more info about both of them here
  • Don't forget: we would appreciate you letting us know if you are coming.
  • Always a pleasure to lead you in worship – yesterday would be no exception.
  • Music yesterday: All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name (Baloche version), It is Well (Todd Fields arrangement), Sing, Sing, Sing (Tomlin), Came to My Rescue (Hillsong), Just As I am.
  • Do you remember the time when you asked God to save You? If not and you would like to talk about it you get up with me – I would love to talk about it with you.
  • Great Super Bowl Party with the Crossover Middle School Team! Great crowd, great food, great fellowship and a great game. Everyone seemed to have a ball. Way to go Crossover team!

Have a great Monday… If you will, stop a moment and pray for me in the area of creativity as I am thinking strongly about Easter/the month of March lead up to Easter. 

Who Are You Really Listening To?

I just heard "Voice of Truth" by Casting Crowns for the 1st time in a REALLY long time and found myself caught off guard by the Truth of God – the message was unexpected, loving and pretty loud:

The giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me time and time again, "boy, you'll never win – you'll never win"

But the Voice of Truth tells me a different story
the Voice of Truth says, "Do not be afraid"
And the Voice of Truth says, "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me – I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of Truth

I said to my son, Matt, "you know what one of the hardest things in life is? Making sure that your heart is quiet enough to actually hear the 'Voice of Truth'".

There are so many opportunities to listen to the wrong things/voices/etc. Who are you choosing to listen to?

This Weekend (on a Wednesday)

I am VERY ready for the weekend – what about you?

I know that it's only Wednesday, and I know that there is a lot that needs to happen before Sunday gets here but I am SO looking forward to gathering with the church of God for our weekly worship.

Maybe it's because we didn't have church this past Sunday…

Maybe it's because I have only been in a worship service 1 time in the past month (2 weeks Hawaii/then last weeks miss)…

Maybe it's because I know that we have a powerful service planned for the weekend…

Maybe it's because, in this week's fast, God quickened my heart for the things that matter to Him…

Maybe it's because I just realized (wow…) that this weekend will usher in the last month of my mentor/pastor's ministry with me (I want this to be the greatest month ever!)…

OR…

Maybe it's just because I have come to realize the power that's found when God's people come together in one accord (unity) and call out (surrender) to the Only One who can handle the situations our life holds.

Here's what I do know:

  • God has given us a mission – to reach those we have influence with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • God has called His people to seek after Him – to live lives that are bathed in repentance, understanding our need for Him and the fact that He has saved us to live for Him (not ourselves).
  • For us to do the top two it is imperative that we do whatever is necessary to come together, to seek His true will for us and for our church. May we never forget that it is impossible to live out Mark 12, the great commandment: "love the Lord Your God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your mind and with all of your strength", without doing the 2nd part of that: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these (emphasis mine). Jesus thought it very important that we understand that both of them were tied together.

With this in mind, as we move towards the weekend, may we seek to worship the Lord in our daily lives, seeking peace with those we have struggles for the glory of God. On Thursday, worship Him through your day… talk to Him as often as you think on Him through the day. On Friday, worship. On Saturday, worship. And on Sunday, set the clock a little earlier than normal, read some psalms, sing some songs and prepare your heart to meet with Him and His people. If we will all do that then I believe we will better understand what King David was expressing when he said, 

"I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."' (Psalm 122:1)
