I made a return trip to the same church I attended last Sunday---since I still had not heard the "Lead Pastor". When looking for a new church home--God impressed upon me 3 things--
1. Hear the truth spoken
2. A church where my gifts can be used in service to Him
3. Fellowship among the Believers
Today I heard "The Truth"---spoken by a very young (30's) lead pastor--who was SO on target ---and a humble man of God. I was very impressed and would love a steady diet of hearing from this gifted communicator.
Taken from Ephesians 5--with emphasis on verse 32--the message was about our families-this applies to all of us-no matter the status of our family! The entire point of family---per God's perfect plan---is to point others to Jesus. So even when our families are not whole--and part of the windows are blackened by a fallen world---others still need to see Jesus when they peep into the window that you are standing in front of.
My prayer--that others have seen Jesus--when they looked in my window and know that even in a broken family---I am still looking to Him---serving Him---and love him above all others. Powerful reminder that others are watching us---and see the face of Jesus when they look at us.
