Greetings my friends. It is Sunday May 01ST 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.
It’s the first of two Sunday mornings in a row of preaching God’s Word for my church family. I’m excited about it. It should be very interesting, as I preach two totally unrehearsed and spontaneous sermons from the heart – wholly glorifying God.
Some of you have asked me if I can place videos of our sermons on here. No – I can’t at this time. We don’t record our sermons. We’ve tried in the past with an iPhone and an iPad, but it didn’t work out very well. We tried with Facebook LIVE. That didn’t work either. Our Pastor even preached his sermon to an empty sanctuary and his iPad on a Friday or a Saturday, and then he posted it to our Facebook page on Sunday morning at nearly the same time that he preached it LIVE to us. That was just awkward.
We’re a small church with a small budget, and I kind of like it like that – coming from a big church with a big budget for 8+ years before arriving at my current church of the past 7+ years. There are positives and negatives with both the big church experience – as well as the small church experience. Some of the bells and whistles of the big church experience were impressive, and some were just plain annoying – if not perhaps even a bit offensive. I’m enjoying the positives of the small church experience during this part of my fantastic journey.
I think the best way to share a sermon with you is when I transcribe it into a series of blog posts – much as I did for 6 Sundays in December 2021 and January 2022 with my message on being “Holy & Redeemed”. (Check out my SERMONS page for links.) I may do the same with “Stones & Stumbles” – which served as the sequel to “Holy & Redeemed” and covered 1 Peter 1:23 to 2:9. It’ll probably be another 6-part blog series. I may kick that off in a few weeks.
Meanwhile here’s one of the memes that I’ll preach on later today:
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.
