I'm taking a little break from my studies to talk about the sermon that I'm working on. What an awesome privilege it is to share with our congregation from the Word of God. It's such an awesome responsibility that should never be taken lightly.
Today we are preparing the last message in a series called "Slacker" and the message deals with jerking the slack out of our 9 to 5. As you can imagine it's a message of how we can glorify Jesus Christ through our work lives. I'm going to be using an example from the life of David that will remind us all that he didn't start out being the"King David" we all know and appreciate, but that he started his journey much lower on the org chart. In fact, he was the youngest of eight boys, but there was something special about this young man and his approach to life that guided him from shepherding his father's sheep to shepherding a entire nation. So my prayer today is that God will continue to guide my thoughts to allow this message to touch the hearts and minds of our people, helping them to apply these simple principles to their lives and glorify God everyday in their 9 to 5.
Like it says in Colossians 3:23, "and whatever you do, do it heartily as to the Lord and not to men." May all of our "whatever we do's" today show off our love and commitment to Jesus.
