I love Fridays! Friday is the day that I use for catch up. Friday is typically the day that I use to do anything that I needed to do during the week that I did not get done. It is also the day that I take a final major look-over at what God has for us on Sunday. This Sunday we are going to continue to work our way through Matthew 5:1-12 (The Beatitudes!) We will be looking at “Blessed are those that hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled!”
I am about to be as up front with you as I possibly can be. As I look at what God has for us this coming Sunday, I just want to say: If you are not serious about being a Christ Follower, then you may not want to be at Northwood on Sunday. If you have anything in your life that is getting in the way of your being a Christ Follower and you are not willing to face it and deal with it, then you may want to stay at home or go somewhere else. It will not be a pleasant day for people who are playing a game that they call Christianity.
If you are serious about your relationship with Christ and if you are ready to follow Him in a greater way than you ever have before, then you will want to be at one of our two campuses on Sunday morning. If you come hungry and thirsty, then you will have the opportunity to leave satisfied and filled.
Remember to read through Matthew 5:1-12. Take some time to think about what it means in your life to “hunger and thirst for righteousness.” And join me on Sunday morning for an awesome and incredible time with the God who loves you more than you could ever begin to dream or imagine.
