Sunday Recap (5)
Another Monday… Another opportunity to change the world!
We had a fantastic day in the House yesterday at Ribble Valley Church. We saw salvation, heard testimony of healing and met with God powerfully.
Here’s a quick recap of yesterdays messages which you can listen to here
- We were talking about Excellence, Fun and Consistency. Sounds like three different ideas, but yesterday Pastor Ed and Andy Carter spoke two great messages showing how these are all connected and all vital for serving God with our lives.
- Excellence is the BEST you’ve got to give. God isn’t happy when we withhold our best! (Mal 1) We ought to set a high internal standard of excellence.
- When we give our best, God is glorified and we are satisfied.
- Living a life of excellence requires us to rearrange our lives completely. Trying harder doesn’t work by itself, we need to change how we see God and see life and rearrange our lives accordingly.
- Excellence brings a reward! (Col 3:24)
- We talked about the importance of having a trust in God that allows us to chill and have fun in the midst of our hard work.
- We should delight ourselves in the Lord! (Ps 37:4)
- Finally we talked about the importance of consistency in ensuring that our excellence and our ability to chill out before God doesn’t go up and down with our moods or circumstances but that we can hold fast to His promises in every season.
Also, remember to keep bringing in donations to Compassion (see the list of items needed here), and there are still children to be sponsored. FOUR more kids were sponsored yesterday which is AMAZING, but there are still more who can be helped by a small donation each month to become all God’s called them to be. You can help by checking out the Compassion Stand in the foyer on Sunday.
So keep going! Why not take a step of faith this week and invite someone to church, we have Kathryn Durham preaching this Sunday and Derek Smith the week after at our Birthday Celebration, so two great weekends coming up!
Thanks everyone, church wouldn’t be the same without you.
