Loving, Forgiving, Saving (Part 3) – Weekend Wrap

This past Sunday was over-the-top for a number of reasons:

  • First of all, so many responded to the Word! Lots of people recommitted their lives to Jesus. Boom!
  • AMPD Band opened all three services with Loving, Forgiving, Saving. They did an outstanding job I must say, too! I’m so proud of our youth and their willingness to use the gifts and talents for the Kingdom.
  • The crowd was even more energetic and responsive than usual.
  • I enjoyed the presence of the Holy Spirit and His leading. Lp went with the ‘flow’ and switched up the songs in all three services. Cool.
  • We moved a bunch of LFS T-Shirts and CD’s. What a way to release the new song! (BTW, if you haven’t heard it yet, click HERE and enjoy.)
  • Kristie & RCBand nailed Jewel’s Who Will Save Your Soul
  • 512 people attended!
  • Our staff, leaders, and volunteers are awesome.

Sermon Highlights & Takeaways

  • Loved the video clip about Noah. Hilarious. Watch it HERE.
  • So interesting that God was sorry he ever made humans, yet Noah found favor with Him.
  • In the midst of adversity and an overwhelming task, Noah did everything exactly as God commanded him. Props to Noah. See John 14:15.
  • We read Romans 10:5-13. Notice everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
  • Our key character was Nicodemus. Our key Scripture was John 3:1-21.
  • 1. Nicodemus Came to Christ (at night)
  • He was still lost in spite of his: sincere religious faith, his religious office, and spiritual awareness.
  • We drove home the point that it’s not enough to simply believe in God. The devil and his demons believe in God and are still going to hell.
  • Told the story of a man who spent 49 years serving a church and was…lost. He finally got saved at age 83. You can attend church every Sunday and still go to hell.
  • Jesus is the ONLY way to be saved, period.
  • 2. Nicodemus Spoke Up For Christ
  • Will we do the same?
  • 3. Nicodemus Honored Christ (after He was dead)
  • It’s better to give flowers to the living than to deliver them to a funeral.
  • Come to Jesus today, speak for Jesus today, honor Jesus today, worship Jesus today, serve Jesus today, live for Jesus today.

Thank you, Lord…

For Loving
For Forgiving
For Saving…me.
