“Sovereign God, thy cause, and not my own, engages my heart.”
That quote comes from “God’s Cause” in the Puritan Book of Prayers, The Valley of Vision. As we focused on the servants of the church today, that was our focus. The entire service wrapped around the desire and the strength that we need to live for God’s Kingdom rather than our own. Through the videos, testimonies, prayers, and songs, we tried to drive home that point. I loved how our servant panel expressed how each of their roles in the church are pivotal!
Today, we worshiped to:
- Everlasting God – North Side Worship
- In the Sanctuary – Kurt Carr
- Lord, I Need You – Matt Maher
- When I Survey the Wondrous Cross – North Side Worship
Jeff’s message was such a great reminder that God gifts every believer with a manifestation of the Spirit for the common god (1 Cor. 12:7). God has gifted us not for our own benefit but for the good of the church. What a great reminder to utilize what God has entrusted within us for his glory.

Please pray for our Shake-n-Shine camp which begins tomorrow!
