Our service was tremendous this morning. God was doing some cool things.From the first song to the last prayer, God was definitely speaking to us. I felt people could really connect to the message "iWorship" where we talked about real worship is bring pleasure to God in everything we do. C.S.Lewis said," In commanding us to glorify Him, God is inviting us to enjoy Him." Wow, can you grip that... i believe that Worship is a lifestyle of enjoying God and loving Him with all you've got. I finished with the verse in Romans 12:1 from the Message bible.." So here's what I want you to do, God helping you; Take your everyday, ordinary life- your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life- and place it before God as a offering. Worship Him." That nails it for me, how about you?
Again this week people made decisions to follow Christ, which is what it's all about.
Met many new faces.A real nice young couple from Flint. Also DeeDee who Kathi and I met before when she worked at Hill Street Grill. Oh...also Bob and his wife Elaine who came because they received an invite card in the mail. We send out cards every month to every new family that moves into our community. Sort of like Welcome wagon. Well Bob is 89 years old and his beautiful bride is 83. They loved the service, even though the music was louder than they were used to at the Church in Gladwin they used to attend. By the way they said, they think they found their new church home. That's amazing because our services are geared more toward 2o's to 40's, God is good.Isn't that just the coolest.
