"In the reading of the Word, are you getting to Jesus? In the study of the Word, are you getting to Jesus? In your prayer life, are you getting to Jesus? In your prayer life, are you getting to Jesus? In your group life, are you getting to Jesus? Is it getting you to Jesus because, ultimately, if it’s not getting us to that, then it’s, as Jesus said, in vain." Taken from Matt Chandler's sermon.
|To the baby we may never know, but are so very thankful for! A child we believed would be adopted into our family.|
In one of his sermons, Matt Chandler discusses a family in his church that has been through, is going through a difficult time. He said as he walked in the room with the family there were tears, confusion, perplexion, loss and angst. They were praying and asking the Holy Spirit to minister to them, to minister to the group and to minister to the family. They were asking and crying out on behalf of this family. And then the dad comes in, puts his arms around them and starts to pray with them. Despite the fact that there was no happiness in that room, there was an unshakable joy in that room. There was a confidence in God that was not removed from this precious family by horrific circumstances.
