SUMMING UP SUNDAY
1 Peter 3:8-10
Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit…”
What an excellent reminder the Sunday morning message was for all of us. It is so important for us to be of one mind, lining up with God’s Word, in order for Him to accomplish great things through us for His Kingdom. The message once again not only stepped on my toes, but squished them, reminding me of how important it is to be in God’s Word daily. I spent 4 whole days last month at the conference being reminded of that. Granted, my quiet times have become more regular, but I can always do more. Philippians 2:5~We have the mind of Christ when His Word becomes part of us. This part tied in excellent with the passage from Sunday School (and the New Attitude Conference). [Read Jeremiah 15:16; Listen to Josh Harris’ message on responses to God’s Word; Read Spurgeon’s sermon on this verse].
Oh, and should we even mention the tongue thing. How often is my speech uplifting? Ouch! Not enough…I can tell you that much!
So then, last night…I really appreciated Bro. Roger’s heart-to-heart. It was encouraging to hear how the Lord has used his church family in his life. It was also another reminder of how much we have to be thankful for. Personally, Bro. Roger and his family have been a blessing to me. They are all so genuine, which I am thankful for. Their sweet dispositions display God’s glory and I can see Him at work in all of their lives.
Finally, I want to let each one of you know that you have been a blessing in my life. It would take me forever to list how and why, but the Lord has used each of you in a very special way. I am so grateful that He strategically scattered me at New Life!
