Hearing is the easy part…
The Bible instructs us in James 1:22 to “…be doers of the word, and not hearers only…” Our senior pastor, Phil Courson, regularly emphasizes a key aspect to our Sunday messages – and that is APPLICATION. It is usually easy to hear a message…even a challenging one. But putting that message into practice, letting the Living Word change our lives…well, that is a different story.
We have just concluded a several-month-long study from the Book of Deuteronomy. This series carried a byline theme of “Loving obedience to a loving God.” Our prayer is that it has been helpful in every way, and that we will experience this byline in our individual lives.
The end of one series means the beginning of another, one that will start the week after our big GATOR DAY on August 28. That series will be RESET – “Jesus Changes Everything!” This will be a string of 5 messages – with each Sunday’s teaching being a challenge to “hit the reset button” to make sure that we are applying His living Word – to not only inform us on this thing of obedience to a loving God…but to actually obey Him in practice.
May God help us do just that, to be a doer of His Word.
Till next time.
