Rob was in the house today teaching the Sermon on the Mount series with Matthew 5: 10-11. “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness.”
Today we learned how God is with the poor in the spirit, the broken, the sinners. He is not just there with the whole and righteous as some may think. God loves all who have chosen to pick up and follow him under whatever circumstaces.HE LOVES YOU AND ME AND YOU AND ALL.
I know for me sometimes when I forget to pray, forget to read, get angry, swear, lock my wife in the attic (I know I probably shouldn’t have done this but it calmed her down) I think is God with me. Well today we learned that not only is God with you at these times but more than ever is he with you at these times. GOD MEETS YOU AT THE PLACE OF NEED AND SUFFERING!
If you are feeling like yo have failed, maybe you are feeling powerless, just remember Jesus is there with you and you are not alone.
It is time that we stand up and have a mindset of Disciples who make Disciples who make Disciples who make Disciples who make Disciples. This is when we will change the world!
Thank you Rob for the great service and I hope you all find this as comforting as I.
