Today's Sermon


Two pictures that describe my entire day yesterday. Can you see why I need a huge recliner? Need I say more??
Today, when I was listening to the Children's message, I had an inspiration for the sermon. I went with it, worked it into to my sermon and it went great, better than great, fantastic.
Now for many of you that will not be something new, however, I am not really spontaneous when it comes to my sermons. Actually, I am very meticulous. I have sat through some absolutely horrible sermons because preachers didn't follow their manuscript or outline. And they got lost and confusing.
I can only give praise to the Holy Spirit, because I truly wouldn't have done it without the prompting of the Spirit. Wow, in the last month, I have walked around the sanctuary while preaching and now this.

It's funny what preachers get excited about. Isn't it?

But after preaching that sermon, I was on a high most of the day.
