Lord's Day Worship

Today I had a unique oppurtunity to preach at a historic Church here in the city at 7:00am and then I travelled to our 9:00am worship and at 3:00pm we will have our youth worship with guest speaker youth Pastor Rick Mc Gregor of Greater Metropolitan Church. This morning I challenged the church with a message on missions from Isaiah 6:1-12. At the 7;00am worship I was warmly received, and it went extremely well, God is awesome. At our 9:00am we had several guest that returned from thanksgiving worship, I talked about getting a hold on missions.
God Uses Circumstances to Make Us Aware of His Presence 6:1
God Reveals His Character to Make Us See Our Need 6:2-7
God Gives Us Hope to Make Us Realize We Are Useful 6:8
God Expands Our Vision to Make Us Evaluate Our Availability 6:8
God Tells Us the Truth to Make Us Focus on Reality 6:9-12

It's been some time since I have had the oppurtunity to blog my work at the church has been tremendously busy, also work with our state congress were I serve as Vice president at Large and were gearing up for our state congress in Palm dessert California were we are expecting some 2000 delegates and I'm responsible for all youth curriculm as well as teaching a class. We this past weekend meet for the second time in our school of the prophets and discussed Correlation, and Application along with Aristotles principles for effective communication. On top of all this still working through Hebrews this week were in 11:32-40, ill post the outline later this week. Sunday was a great day of Worship for us our praise and worship team as well as our youth choir provided music and the message was from 1Thessalonians 5:23-28
Saying good bye in this passage Paul good bye is actually a prayer and a blessing at the same time F.F Bruce calls it a "wish prayer" because instead of saying "Father, may You do this for these people," He prays, " May God do this for you". According to Pauls wish prayer, God is able to do three things:
1. sanctify us entirely vs. 23
2. preserve us completely vs 23b
3.Receive us blamelessly vs 23c

And having focused on the Lord Paul turns his attention to relationships within the body.
1. We pray for one another vs 25
2. We affirm and show affection toward each other vs 26
3. Listen to the same information vs 27
Finally verse 28 spaeks of Grace Paul closes the letter the same way he opens it.
In conclusion my prayer for you is the same as that of the Apostle Paul as qouted from the message by Eugene Peterson

May God Himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, out you --- spirit, soul, and body and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he'll do it!
Friends, keep up your prayers for us. Greet all the Christians there with a holy embrace. And make sure this letter gets read to all the brothers and sisters. Don't leave anyone out.
The amazing grace of Jesus Christ be with you!

Sunday was a great day of worship at Full "G", we had good attendance and we shared together in the Lord's Supper. It was my first Sunday back in the pulpit and I thought it might take a while to adjust but God honored our work and boy was it a whale of ride. Sunday I preached from Acts 27 "How to handle a shipwreck". Man was I tempted to cheat (LOL) I have one of the most flawless yet phenomenal sermons titled Anchors of the soul preached by the late HB Charles Sr. Hopefully one day HB Jr and I can get together and publish some of his works. At any rate here's my outline to help you steady your storm tossed soul by using four spiritual anchors.

1.The Anchor of Stability vs. 20-26
2.The Anchor of Unity vs. 27-32
3. The Anchor of Renewal vs. 33-36
4. The Anchor of Reality vs. 41-44

All 276 passengers made to land God never promised that things would not be lost, but he did promise they all would survive, and when your in a storm stuff doesn't matter but survival does. God always keeps His word, He didn't miraculously move them to the island. He did however give them the ability to get to shore safely, but they still had to swim did you catch that they still had to swim!!!!!!!!!

Until next time

Numbers 6:24
