Encouraging Sunday

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you” – (Matthew 28:19-20). 

I actually think there can come a point in your Christian life where you don’t need to go hear more Bible studies (now, don’t take that out of context). What I mean is, there can come a point when you are sitting down and having a meal, and it is time to push away from the table, digest your food, and let it be turned into energy to do something productive.

Yesterday was an encouraging day. We had a great time at church service with inspiring worship and a good message on the Power of God. But the real encouragement came at 4 p.m., when the church was again full of folks applying the morning’s message and volunteering for VBS. Everyone there was ready to serve in any way necessary. There was no fighting for the “best parts” or grumbling about anything. The whole meeting took less than an hour and I came away encouraged and excited about serving in the Vacation Bible School. 

I know Greg Laurie’s words can be a little shocking. Despite his request I’m sure some folks will take them out of context.We love studying. It’s comfortable. It’s filling but it’s not always fulfilling. We are called and created and anointed to do things. We’re not all called to be great preachers or extraordinary missionaries, but we can be extraordinary. Sitting in a bible study is ordinary. Putting it into practice what we learn is extraordinary. That doesn’t take a special person. It just takes a humble, honoring, willing, Child of God.

See Pastor. I was taking notes yesterday. I went to be encouraged and I was.

Have a blessed day.
