Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: Behold Sermon Title: Behold the Source of Life
Delivered On: December 3, 2017
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
Ask God to remind you each day of the truth found in Jesus, and thank Him for sending Jesus to us. Acknowledge that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Tell God you adore Him, honor Him and are thankful for all He’s done for you and will do.
Instead of worrying about the commercialism of Christmas this year, turn your energy towards praying for all those you see hustling and bustling about in the rush of the holiday. Ask the Holy Spirit to use the rush to speak to them in new and unexpected ways, steering their hearts toward Jesus.
