God be praised for another Lord’s Day!
This past Sunday, I turned to John 1:14, and explored Christ’s deity, incarnation, God’s grace and His glory. The Sermon Title was, “The Christ of Christmas”. The older I get, the more I am falling in love with not only biblical exposition, but story-telling and preaching Christian doctrine. I am heavily leaning towards taking time each year just going through our doctrine and “What We Believe” in the Christian Faith. I enjoyed the preaching moment, so much so, that I found myself in celebration…and lost my voice!
Humbled and grateful that attendance at Shiloh is steadily growing; and the Lord is adding to our church family. Really excited about a young couple who joined at the conclusion of the message. Later in the evening, a group of people from our church sponsored a Christmas sing-along. It was a fun time!
During the course of this week, I am trying to catch up on a number of things as we conclude 2016; and prepare for the coming year. I am very excited about so many open doors that lie ahead; but realize that the closing of old chapters can be emotional and challenging. At the age of 38, I can only hope and pray that we all learn from where we’ve been; use it to become better where we are; and glorify our Lord in the midst of it all.
