Studying for the sermon this past week was very challenging. I had to ask myself over and over again, “Where are you too easily satisfied?” It brought me to my knees, and led me to give up some things that where becoming “substitute gods”…places I was going to find comfort, peace, and acceptance outside of God. It was hard…but very good! I’m reminded of the words of the psalmist who said “Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word.” (Ps. 119:67) I hope you were challenged as well…and I was encouraged to see the response from many here this past Sunday. My prayer is that God’s word will continue to bear fruit in MY life and in YOUR life!
Can’t wait for this Sunday…let’s see what a person who hungers for God really looks like!
