Tag: Sundays @ North Side (page 1 of 103)

The Love of God

It was a day of rejoicing.

As we concluded our appointment at North Side, there were a lot of things to process, but I will keep it where it needs to be – Jesus has been so very faithful to our family and we love the people of North Side.  He loved each of us while we were still sinners, and I refuse to get over that!

Loved the way that our entire worship team led, and so thankful for how the worshipers went after it.  I was amazed at how much the church jumped into the new song “For the Glory.”

I love, love, love you people.

We are very thankful for the drop-in that you guys are throwing for our family.  We will see you at 4-6 today.

Joy in Tribulations

Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us (Rom 5:3-5).

Special day of worship today.  Each Sunday is special with our North Side family, but it is getting even sweeter these last couple of Sundays.  The caliber of people I get to lead worship with is astounding and humbles me to this day.

The Blessings of Justification by Faith

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God (Romans 5:1-2).

Saving Faith

No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God (Romans 4:20).

Great day of worship at North Side!  Loved the passion and honesty with which people worshiped today.  Great to hear testimonies, Scripture, sermon, and prayers going up!

Faith Alone

Is this blessing then only for the circumcised, or also for the uncircumcised? For we say that faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness. 10 How then was it counted to him? Was it before or after he had been circumcised? It was not after, but before he was circumcised (Romans 4:9-10).

Today was one of those days that I was very aware how the Spirits puts services together.  Song choices and sermon points moved together like every situation had been planned.  As the snow melted so quickly, we sang about how our lives will melt away just like snow.  Didn’t plan that one either.  So thankful for how the Spirit pulls it all together.
