Weekend Messages!!What's Happening!!
October 26thWhat we've never been... Hebrews 12:1-3
It has been a remarkable eleven months and I can’t thank you enough for inviting me to be part of your life. Over the past eleven months we’ve talked a lot about many things and you would expect that on my last Sunday we would talk about mission, purpose, moving forward, or how to make a lasting kingdom difference in this world. Over the years, however, I’ve discovered something. The majority of us in this sanctuary, and every other sanctuary I’ve ever visited, carry deep inside our souls a tainted view of self. When we look into our "spiritual mirror" we often see someone who is dysfunctional, undeserving, broken, unqualified, unworthy of God’s love, and maybe even worthless, and all too often we believe God see us in the same way we see ourselves.
It is here, on my last Sunday, that we would do well to once again fix our eyes on Jesus, for in doing so he will breathe "his view of us" back into our hearts and souls.
Fruitland friends, I want to leave you with this; in the midst of everything we have or have not done over the past eleven months, or better yet over our entire life, there's something that we've never been. Come on out and let Jesus breathe this one essential truth into you. You'll be glad you did. I promise!!
