It Is Finished

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:

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!
