Life Pointe Church Sunday Morning Tossed Salad

It was another glorious Sunday morning at Life Pointe Church in Homestead Florida. Here are my takeaways in 15 words or less:

– God said ‘Let there be rain !’, and so it did – if only for a few minutes.
– The 9 AM service was a bit more crowded this week than last week.
– Everyone must be on the same Daylight Saving Time zone now.
– Mike B. led ‘Praise & Worship’ as we all sang to God and He listened.
Mark S. hosted during that first service, and he was loud and confident.
– It was his best hosting performance to date.
– He later revealed that he had been up since 1 PM yesterday.
– I’m thrilled that he’s blogging again. I need the company.
– Dan B. led the teaching this morning for the first time ever.
– He did an outstanding job leading us through His Good News.
– If I’m on trial for obeying God would there be enough evidence for conviction ?
– I will never ever be just like Jesus Christ.
– I will however move to become more and more like Him.
– I must continue to grow towards His likeness.
– I must continue to permit God to mold me in His likeness.
– God should be able to easily reach me.
– I must protect myself from evil and darkness and those who relish in it.
– I do not wish to go back where I came from nearly 31 months ago.
– I do not wish to be a puppet of this world.
– I wish to see what’s around the corner for me on God’s fantastic journey.
– Stay away Satan. You did nothing for me. I have no use for you.
– This morning’s teaching was based on the following 28 verses:
   – 1 Timothy 4:7-8
   – Romans 12:1-2
   – 1 Corinthians 15:32-34
   – Philippians 4:8-9
   – Galatians 5:22-23
   – 1 Corinthians 11:1
   – 2 Peter 1:3
   – 1 Timothy 6:6-20
– This is my favourite – Romans 12:1-2:
A Living Sacrifice to God
1
  And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice — the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him.
2  Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
