We had a wonderful day yesterday and I just wanted to share a few insights from it for those of you who may have missed the little things.
1. Lloyd became an owner. Lloyd came to us about a year ago when his wife got cancer. They came a few times but as she got sicker they missed a lot, and then she left us. Since the day of the funeral Lloyd has been faithful as he has sought to heal a broken heart. He is finding that healing in the love and affection given to him by you.
Thank you Church for loving a broken man.
2. Gina is excited. After the wonderful wedding of her daughter on Saturday, Gina came to church with such joy. Not that she isn't always happy, yesterday was just noticed more by me and many others
Thank you Church for sharing your happiness.
3. Newton is taking control. If there is one thing I notice as do others, our Parking lot greeters and ushers are getting younger and stronger. This is the sign of a healthy church as we are cared for by the strong. How could you miss Sunny, Nick, James, Luke and so many others.
Thank you Church for making us feel protected and provided for.
This is nothing but the fruit of the Spirit being lived out every Sunday.
Love-Joy-Peace (Galatians 5:22)
I hear from so many Christians talk about services to where they feel the Spirit move but this is the true evidence of it. Not an emotional response to a situation but a personal response to the Spirit of Gods work with fruit more than feeling.
I can't wait for Sunday
BTW - This Sundays Message is the most important message ever preached at newLife.
