If you wish to know how our Sunday morning service went down at our new Plantation Key campus of Life Pointe Church then you should just ask anyone with a last name of Hollifield – or this crazy long-haired dude. I wasn’t there. I was back in business at the Homestead / Flagship Cinemas campus. In fact I was there for a good 5½ hours this morning from start to finish.
Hospitality Setup was outstanding excellent very good good [fair]. We were missing several VIPs this morning (such as Manny and Tom ‘Can Do It’). My good friend Jonathan and I realized that we are not mechanically inclined, and we freely admit it. I even cut open my right index finger (with actual blood oozing out of it) to prove that I’m not a good ‘putter-togetherer’. Nurse Anne bandaged me up and put me back in the game.
“The Art Of War” (message series) continued into its 3RD of 5 weeks with Pastor Travis delivering the good message entitled ‘Eat & Sleep Well’. To effectively conquer and subdue the enemy we must possess a good work theology. Basically we must work when we need to work, and we must rest when we need to rest. The Lord tells us to follow His example. We need to ‘come apart’, or we will come apart. A failure to rest and recharge ultimately leads to utter disaster.
1 So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed.
2 On the seventh day God had finished His work of creation, so He rested from all His work.
3 And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when He rested from all His work of creation.
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
