What a wonderful day to be a part of North Side! I got the privilege to lead worship and preach today. It is always a humbling thing to be in the room when God saves people. We got to be in His presence when He did just that for a good crew of people at the 9:30 and 11:00 services. I got to speak with some wonderful people and received some great emails today of people who Jesus saved today. Absolutely amazing to see how God is transforming lives!
I preached from John 19 on the crucifixion of Jesus and the 3 greatest words I ever heard: it is finished. We do not need to keep fighting a battle that has already been won by Christ. He has offered the final sacrifice and has sat down at the right hand of God – it is finished!
Hebrews 10:11Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins; 12but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD
Today, we worshiped to:
- In Christ Alone/Solid Rock – Travis Cottrell
- Friend of Sinners – North Side Worship
- It Is Finished – North Side Worship
- Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) – North Side Worship
The worship team did a fantastic job leading as always. So special to hear our church sing out with all their hearts!
Heather Emch did a fantastic “Ni Zan Je” testimony about her time in Africa. Her testimony was powerful and her delivery so biblical and passionate – we are blessed with the best college students in the world!
We had a great Connect group tonight and 53 men for our Courageous study – I am worn out but joyful at God’s move among us!
