Here are some highlights and takeaways from Part 2 of our current sermon series Word Up:
Part 2 :: I Am Who It (the Bible) Says I Am
- RCBand ripped through the following songs: Glory to God by Fee, Sing My Love & One Thing Remains by Jesus Culture, and You’ll Come by Hillsong Live. Who needs a pogo stick?! Not I.
- Our 8:45 crowd seemed more responsive and awake than usual, and our 10:15 & 11:45 crowds were thumping!
- Began the message by informing everyone that I’m a sinner AND a “speeder.” You’ll have to listen to the podcast for the complete story.
- Gave a short synopsis of these people whom God used despite their “issues.” :: Moses, Abraham, Jacob, Leah, Joseph, Naomi, Rahab, Gideon, David, Samson, Elijah, Jonah, John the Baptist, Matthew, Peter, Zacchaeus, Thomas, the Samaritan woman, Paul, and Timothy.
- Key Scripture: Hebrews 11:32-34
- One highlight during the 10:15 & 11:45 services was randomly throwing down Let’s Get It Started. (I completely forgot to do it in the 8:45 service. Sorry, guys!)
- Props to DJ Ezra for finding this video on the fly that I made reference to in the first service. This allowed us to show it in our second and third services.
