Greetings my friends. It is Sunday February 19TH 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.
This morning I’m in beautiful scenic Highlands County Florida in the south-central “Heartland” of the state along the U.S. 27 “spine”. I’ve been here for a few days now, and I’m making my return trip southward. But first I’m visiting a friend’s church for the first time ever in Lake Placid. She used to live in Homestead for many years, and then she moved away about 15 years ago to Highlands. I’m doing the same thing this year !
This morning when I visit her church – I’ll be part of her church family for an hour or so. I was part of her church family last Sunday too – when I watched the entire service LIVE on Facebook.
I don’t believe in going to church or leaving from church. I believe in being the church and bringing the church in everything I do and everywhere I go. If you go to church – then that means that you’re coming from something else to rejoin the church for an hour or two. I don’t ever want to leave the church behind. I want to be the church 24/7. It is not meant to be merely a Sunday morning ritual. It is meant to be your entire life. If God’s church is not your entire life – then why bother ? Christ is coming back for His glorious church.
He did this to present her to Himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead – she will be holy and without fault. (Ephesians 5:27 NLT)
Next Sunday morning I’ll bring the church back with my home church in Homestead for the first time in 4 weeks.
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.
