Such a fulfilling and rewarding day at Biltmore today. I am so blessed to pastor a great group of people who love God and love people. Here are about 10 random thoughts on the day:
*Weekend started great with many, many BBC members reaching out to the community through Love Loud on Saturday. They REACHED OUT by working at numerous area elementary schools helping them prepare for the upcoming year.
*Music was such a blessing as always – especially liked Bless Your Name and Before the throne of God
*”Behold Him there, the Risen Lamb, my perfect, spotless righteousness, the great unchangeable I Am, the King of glory and of grace!”
*”Commitment only works if it is preceded by surrender.”
* Awesome to see an altar full of dads praying for for their families.
*Brought in extra chairs for the early service.
*So great to see 176 people baptized today (mostly adults). So many stories of God’s grace.
*I get to serve with the best staff and volunteers in the world! They love Jesus, each other, and people far from God.
*Have enjoyed preaching mini series “Enemy at the Gates”
*Acknowledge your weakness, pick up your armor (Ephesians 6:10-13)
*Encouraging to get a Saturday night prayer email for me from a new friend, Pastor K. Marshall Williams.
Can’t wait to kick off the fall this Sunday!
Going to write a few “Vertical minutes” for the radio and go to bed.:-)
