The Spirit was already tangible even before Praise & Worship, (which was synergistic) and just exponentially increased in expression from there. The individual singers, every song took off from the one before. The message, Bishop, you were ON. In all of it, I thanked God once again for the opportunity to be here. I am sure everyone has the experience they desire wherever they are. I know for me, I really could not have imagined better, especially when the authenticity (as I experience it) of God is so openly and plainly expressed in real life terms. I loooooove seeing it, hearing it, being engulfed by it. For me, each unfolding is more than I imagine. For some reason, in these last few services, each time I get a montage of my life, no good or bad attached, just the montage. I am in several places in my life at once, ‘overwhelmed by all that He does not say’, while humbled by the things S/He does say. I know for myself the last few years have been some of the best and worst I have experienced. As my life montage fills my thoughts and vision, I see that the times I experienced the best (whether in the natural I see them as the best or worst) are the times I abandoned myself to The Spirit, diving in with only the belief that God’s will always leads me (each of us) where God’s will keeps me (each of us). I thank God for the thorns in my side, and God’s grace and the basics that HS has taught me as ground zero always in my life. When I attach to that, Love, in every manifestation, I know that Peace, Joy, and Righteousness is in every moment. Thank you CITN for being such a present expression of that for me.
Cleve Cobb said... I agree, music and worship was good and your message was great. Hope you had a easy trip to Nashville.
John W. Brumlow said... I really enjoyed the parallel between the horrible mistakes of King David and those of Peter in his denial of Jesus. How you brought those two together to show that we are still seen by God as something that can effectively carry the good news of Agape to the world regardless of our own mistakes. It was important also that you pointed out that after Jesus acknowledged the mistakes of His disciples He went right into giving them directives to carry the Gospel to all parts of the world. To really see each other this way, seems to be the key to understanding the connection of what was meant in the language that says the second command to love our neighbors as we love ourselves being the same as the first to love God with all our being. There is great healing energy in this message. Be blessed and refreshed friend.
Karl McIntosh Cobos said... yes, a very strengthening and healing message...and a reminder of God using the foolish things of men and the weak things(us)...and that no matter what our boat looks like or what it has been through, as long as the "cargo" (good news) is delivered, that's what is imortant...journey on...
AMEN To That. Let's do it again Wed night and see how many show up even though the Wed. crowd get's more of Ya Know. :)
Every morning my daily confession is:Today is my best day ever!And so be it...
The message was so on it that it is beyond any words that I can even think. I know you think we were kind of not there and was quiet at the early morning but believe me it was the kind of message that you can't talk its like you are on the edge of your seat trying not to miss a word. It was as if you peeped my card and came up with just the right analogy to help me be able to push and move on. Trying to return to egypt has been a thorn in my side should have followed my first mind didn't so now I must deal with it but continue to remember the true teaching of God's word.
