In the AM, I really felt much liberty in preaching. Sermon was on Jesus’ Greatness from Mark 14:12-21. It was fun to remember how Jesus is greater than the Passover but then to see the precision with which Judas was laid bare before Him was awesome. I was really struck to simply stand in awe of Jesus.
In the PM, we had such a full house and the sermon was on God Acts from Hosea 2:2-23. Even when we are running headlong into sin, God is faithful out of His love for His people to allure us. I really needed to hear that incredible motivation to persevere.
At HomeWord Friday PM, we looked at 1 Corinthians 7:10-11 and the call to Stay Together. With so many bailing out of marriages for trifling excuses, we need that reminder from God’s Word as well. His desire is that we stay together for life. I really appreciated the Small group discussion Ron led us in as well. Examining 1 Corinthians 13 and how it calls for devotion was compelling.
How, the call upon our lives is to apply these things. May God grant us grace to do so.
