Note: Elizabeth is taking over some regular blogging here and will be posting about services under the Sundays in Review tag.
Today we gathered for a Church service at the Wolfe’s house with a little larger group than normal.
As usual after songs we read a Bible story for the kids. Previously we had been reading about Nehemiah (the King’s Cup Bearer) but we finished that last week and today we switched to reading about Queen Esther.
Then we had an open prayer time and after that Justin delivered his sermon. Their family recently had break-in at the house they are renovating. So he talked about how we handled problems in our lives and we read Job chapter 1. Justin described getting broken into as “A stress test for your spiritual heart.” One of the examples he used was the football players training before a game so they know what to do because they trained for it.
In the same way, we should train our feelings and thoughts so when things happen we know what to do and how to deal with it in a Christ-like way. Remember that robbers are your brothers! How can I show love to these robbers in a good and Godly way?
