Eye Rollers, Week 4 — “Turn The Other Cheek”

You don’t know how the right word at the right time can make all the difference.

I spent much of this week in Austin (as you know if  you read yesterday’s post) and while there of course spent some time internalizing this Sunday’s message.

Then on Wednesday I needed to speak with a member of our staff team regarding some details for this Sunday’s message, “Turn The Other Cheek.”  He is one of those who gets a sneak preview of the weekly sermon.

And on the phone, he said, “By the way, this sermons is … wow.  So much stuff in it I’d never thought of before.  It’s a jaw dropper.”

All of a sudden my internalizing work was electrified.  And now that I’m back in Charlotte, I can’t wait til Sunday when I can share the message with the people of Good Shepherd.  To get yourself ready, read Matthew 5:38-42 and know this:  Jesus becomes the stories he tells.

Ponder that.
