It's been an interesting assortment. Everything from life application questions to specifically Bible questions. I'm loving it and I look forward to answering them. I don't necessarily enjoy the research and background work, but I do enjoy what I get out of research and background work and I love sharing what I've learned with others.
I'm getting ahead of myself, which is easy for me to do. We still have two weeks of pre-determined messages and I think this Sunday's will create an "aha" moment for many people and I'm excited to share it. It's something that created an "aha" moment for me while on staff here.
See you this Sunday!

He had simplified the entire process in 10 minutes.
I told my secretary that every new pastor needed that piece of paper.
I think organizations often make things more complicated than they really are.
This piece of paper would've helped much earlier in getting things ready for charge conference, but at least it doesn't seem as daunting as it did.

As the church, we are to extend that same invite to others. And just as the invite is available to us before and after we've entered into a meaningful relationsihp with Christ, the church (not to state the obvious, but the church is the people, not the building) is to invite others into the church to taste that same grace.
So the main idea was: The church is to be a refuge for sinners not a social club for saints.
For the entire message, you can go here.
May we be the kind of people that let the church be a refuge for sinners, not a social club for saints.
