This Past Sunday Wes Springer finished up our series on the Glory of God.
Having started his sermon with 1 Corinthians 10:31-11:1, Wes reminded us all that we do needs to be done to the Glory of God. For three weeks we have talk about what the Glory of God is. We talked about how it so often is a term that we use and never really think twice about the implications, we talked about how glory is the manifestation of our Holy God here and now, and we talked about how Glory gets personal.
Glory got no more personal than when Jesus Christ came down to this earth and made a way for us, broken, sinful, human beings to be in the presence and glory of Holy. Our sins matter because they separate us from our relationship with the Father which was the intention all along for our creation.
Wes reminded us that we have the joy and honor through, and by, the power of the Spirit to be a way for others to encounter Jesus. We living lives by the spirit in line with the commands of scripture because of what Jesus Christ did, allows us to a part of God's Glory coming and breaking into this broken world. And that is doing all to the Glory of God. Doing all that we know that is our only response to the Gospel. The command is simple - in all you do, do so that others can encounter Jesus.
We are so excited that we had a chance to go through this series.
Our next Series will start Sept. 22 and it is titled "Surprised by Judgment."
In the mean time, this Sunday we will be focusing on Reconciliation in light of the 50 year anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing.
And Finally. Dont forget, there is a Town Hall Meeting Monday Sept 16 at 6:30 at the Broadhead's House. We hope all that can make it will be there to talk about and hear the passion and direction the Church is going over the next few months.
