Yesterday’s message …
- Was the first time in forever that I pulled out a message on Monday, began the process of rehearsing/internalizing it, realized that I did not like it one bit, and started over almost from scratch. I can hardly tell you how unusual this was. Plus, I was in Atlanta for a Methodist meeting for two days in the middle of the week;
- In the revamped version, I used clear plastic “shoe boxes” to demonstrate the ways we compartmentalize our lives;
- Made use of a written testimony from a staffer about how are contentment is not connected to our circumstances;
- After all that, arrived at a bottom line of If Jesus isn’t Lord of everything, he’s not Lord of anything.
44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
