Today was week 2 in the Crossroads series. The message today centered on “The Muslim Salvation.”
In my message, I spent half of the time giving the history of the prophet Muhammad and the foundation of Islam. For the second part of the message, I explained five key differences between Islam and Christianity.
We had a recording glitch yesterday, so the sermon is not online yet. I am going to rerecord it today so that we can get it on the website.
The praise band did a fantastic job again today. They led with these songs:
- My Savior Lives – New Life Worship
- Sing to the King – Billy Foote
- I Stand in Awe – Mark Altrogge
- I Stand Amazed (My Savior’s Love) – Chris Tomlin
- How He Loves – John Mark McMillan
While I have vowed never to preach on Spring Forward Sunday ever again due to everyone’s sleepy state walking into church, I am thankful for the opportunity to speak on such a delicate subject.
I heard from many people yesterday that they learned a ton. I stated in the beginning of the message that most Americans knew just enough about Islam since 9/11 to make them dangerous. Hopefully, you learned some more, but that you also walked away knowing more about Christianity.
This morning I woke up and praised Jesus that the scale is gone, and I never have to worry about whether or not my good will outweigh my bad – the cross tips the scale every time!
See you next week for the conclusion (I hope the way we lift Jesus high blows you away)!
