Greetings my friends. It is Sunday March 05TH 2023, 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. Let us love our neighbor as ourself.
On this Sunday morning I’m preaching again for the 2ND week in a row. Last week I preached an unrehearsed and spontaneous sermon titled “Sebring & Beyond” – all about the promised land that God has setup for me 186 miles to the north of where I am now. When I had my eyes fixed on the southwest coast of Florida – my God had plans for me in the Heartland of Florida. And then He revealed it to me about 7 years ago. He has opened some doors for me up in Sebring, and I’m walking through those entryways as I approach the next part of my life – retirement.
This morning I’ll be preaching a traditional sermon for me – one that is totally rehearsed and fully written. It’s a sermon about the Apostle Paul and his disciple Titus on the island of Crete that I wrote in about 7 days back in late-October. It’s been sitting “on-the-shelf” since then. Sometimes the time is not right for a particular sermon. Sometimes God guides His church leaders in other directions. Sometimes He leads us to preach on the Gospel that the church body needs to hear right now. I will always listen to God. I will always be totally dependent on Him and His Way.
Preach the word of God. Be prepared – whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. (2 Timothy 4:2 NLT)

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.
