Greetings my friends. It is Sunday March 26TH 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.
I won’t miss a single Sunday this month at my home church of the past 8 years in Homestead Florida. (By contrast I missed the first 3 Sundays last month due to a short sickness bookended by road-trips.)
Next month will be different. I’ll be up in my new hometown of Sebring Florida on April 02ND and 16TH. I’ve selected 2 churches to visit on those 2 Sundays. I’m going to give both churches a look-see – no matter how much I enjoy my experience at the first church on the first Sunday. If I like one church over the other – then I’ll visit it for a 2ND time in May. If I have mixed feelings about both churches on those 2 Sundays – then I’ll select a 3RD church to visit in May. In the meantime – I’m committed to serving and celebrating at my home church here in Homestead for at least 2 Sundays per month for the rest of this year.
I’ve been doing a lot of housekeeping on my computer this weekend. I’ve got music videos all over the place that I’ve used for Praise & Worship before and after my sermons. Last weekend I was asked by my Pastor to prepare a Praise & Worship set for that Sunday morning as a fill-in for our Praise & Worship Pastor who was out-of-town on business. (When I lead Praise & Worship I play 3 or 4 music videos, and I preach in-between each one.)
I had to literally scour my former sermons (PowerPoints) on the church laptop for music videos that I wanted to feature for Praise & Worship on that morning. It would’ve been so much easier if I had a list on the cloud of all of the music videos and what sermon(s) they were featured in, so that I could quickly retrieve, copy, and paste them for use. So I’m working on that list this weekend, as I organize my sermons and videos on my computer.
I also have no new sermon ready to go for the next time I’m asked to preach, so I need to get started on that immediately. It’ll be my 55TH sermon, and I have no idea what it will be about. I’ll look to God for His guidance and direction.
Here’s one of the music videos that I selected as the 2ND song for Praise & Worship last Sunday morning.
Therefore – God elevated Him to the place of highest honor and gave Him the name above all other names – that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow – in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord – to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11 NLT)
I think I have some direction for my next sermon !
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.
