Greetings my friends. It is Sunday March 13TH 2022, and this is the day that our LORD has made. Let us rejoice. Let us be glad in it. Let us celebrate this great new day of believing, following, trusting, loving, and being more like our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
I am back from vacation, and I’m blogging about it every #TravelThursday. I published Part 1 of my 4-part series on this most recent vacation 3 days ago. Part 2 is in 4 days.
I’ll blog a little bit about it here. Last Sunday morning I attended a large church up in Broward County Florida in Cooper City – Potential Church. I’ve been to this church a handful of times over the past decade or more. They have a nice fancy main campus there with lots of modern electronic equipment and cameras. The bells and whistles and gadgets are in abundance. They actually record a portion of their service for broadcast every Sunday morning on our local NBC affiliate here in South Florida.
The Pastor is Troy Gramling, and he and his wife lead a large team of Pastors, Directors, and Staff at Potential. Pastor Troy relies on a lot of bright backgrounds and huge displays and quirky visual aids and extended presentations during his message, and it can be a bit off-putting if you aren’t expecting it. (It’s also what a lot of young churchgoers are interested in seeing and experiencing.)
But Pastor Troy also delivers very strong Bible-based messages. Last Sunday morning he preached on servanthood, and I think he actually utilized more Scripture from the Old Testament than the New Testament. It was very refreshing to see him in action preaching a solid sermon to his congregation from both the Old and the New.
His message on servanthood led into his push for more of his congregation to get involved in serving one another and others – whether it be right there at Potential – or out in the local community. It takes a lot of people to create an experience or a product or a service, but one person can make a huge difference – and change a life forever.
If you wish to learn more about the God I know then stay tuned to #SundayScripture. The best is yet to come !
Thank you for reading my blog for this day, and may:
The LORD bless you, and keep you.
The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
