Today was an amazing morning of Bible study at my church. My hubby usually teaches mind-boggling and challenging lessons, but today one of the associate ministers (Pastor DeLano Sheffield) shared about the beauty of God’s grace and the good news of the Gospel.
I respond best to challenging, deep-rooted teachings that expand my spiritual perspective. My husband is a heads above the crowd in this teaching style and God has assembled a wonderful team of leaders around him. We are blessed.
Well, after the Bible Study, I left the church feeling re-invigorated with fresh revelation from Colossians. It was good stuff. I loved the reminder that in Christ we are blameless because of the wonderful work of Jesus Christ on the cross. We can never hear that too much.
God’s Presence in our Lives
At one point during the lesson, we chatted in small groups about where we would like to see God’s presence in real life situations. Of course, one of the subjects was traffic; there were others, but I can’t remember them. My group giggled as we talked about life’s troubles and how much we need God to occupy our responses to those “tricky” situations.
This Is A Test And Only A Test
One the way home, I called one of our elderly members. Just wanted to check on her and let her know I loved her. On my usual route home, I often drop calls, so I decided to go home another way.
Why in the world did I do that?
Thank God, for His presence that brings peace to any kind of chaos. Also, praise God that although I am blameless in His sight, I need to slow down in my car.
