Precious we are to Him!

I have had many days where I didn't feel adequate, valuable, or worthy...
There is a small chart I found I like to look at that shows me we all have purpose to Him, regardless of our present emotions. Take a look at this whenever your feeling a bit low... Your not just another face, number, or statistic. You have many skills entrusted to you for reaching out to His people...

Planned for God's pleasure ~ (Worship)
Formed for God's family ~ (Fellowship)
Created to become like Christ ~ (Discipleship)
Shaped to serve God ~ (Ministy)
Made for a mission ~ (Evangelism)

"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart" Psalm 37:4

Depending on where your heart is will dictate what your desires are...

The John Bevere event Outstanding!

I found the content of the sermon very informative, challenging, and Spirit driven... What an incredible passion that flows from John! It is clear to see that he is "on fire" for Christ and spreading the Gospel. My wife Kelly and I both talked about the night, and the things we learned, also looking to some of the scripture referenced. We were both intrigued and ready to suggest to our small group to do the "Intimidation" study...
That said, I did have some questions to the exposure to some different style of worship exhibited at our meeting with John. I simply have not been in an environment to witness some of the worship practices on display that night. I have given it some thought and come up with the notion that if in fact some of the brothers there were in fact touched by the "Holy Spirit" who am I to question... For me, it just took a little of my attention away from the speaker and the message. Just a little, but it did in fact have that effect on me. I will say that I was able to concentrate and soak-up the content however, it required an effort, maybe He wanted me on my toes! Bless you all!

I think it would be really cool to do the "Intimidation" study next!
