Its getting cold in
AND this one rude, scoffer actually stepped into the main sanctuary, into the pulpit and began to read my sermon from last week about abiding in Christ’s word, knowing the truth and being made free! He stopped at each line and asked “now what the #@!$#$% does that mean?” And I patiently explained, loving beyond my offended heart!
We could have insisted on appropriate language, we could have insisted on a sterile place untouched by the hands of unbelievers, but instead I watched as God tugs on the heart of a sinner. Ministry is a messy business. (sheep smell) I can see how God chooses the least and the lost and calls them to serve Him. (in the mirror!)
We are seriously committed to being nice to young people whom God loves; and showing Christian love in the face of insults and derision from the blind and the captives.
Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
