What a privilege it was to minister at Cornerstone in Bedford/Judah yesterday! I am especially honored that Pastor Reynolds trusts me to minister while he's away.
I am sure some of the songs I led were new to the congregation, but I still felt God's presence as we united our voices in praise.
A.M. Worship set:
Offering: Come and Go With Me
Friend of God (Gungor/Houghton)
Mighty Is Our God (Greco/Moen)
Let Everything That Hath Breath (Gary Oliver)
We Fall Down (Chris Tomlin)
Word of God Speak (MercyMe)
P.M. Worship set:
We've Come to Praise Him (Richard Smallwood)
Jesus I'll Never Forget
Look What the Lord Has Done
Nothing's Too Big for My God (Nancy Harmon)
Bless the Lord (Hall/Jarnagin/Sasser)
I Need Thee (Robert Lowry)
Offering: More Than Enough (Gary Oliver)
In the evening service, I got to preach as well. As usual, my message had no title, but I did my best to convey the four (!) statements God wanted me to deliver:
- God's Promises are True.
But to cash in on the Word, we need to know the Word, keep the Word, and obey the Word.
References: Jn 14:23, Luke 4:18-19 (a word we can claim since we're part of Christ's body, Luke 8 (parable of the sower)
- We Need the Holy Ghost
One reason: To remind us of the Word
Reference: Jn 14:26
- We Need Permanency (in God)
We need to quit playing around and make up our minds we're sticking with God.
Reference: Jn 15:7
- We Need to Delight in God
If lack of desire (to live for God) is a problem, we need to delight in God so that He can place new desires in our heart.
Reference: Ps 37:4
