  • Notes from Sunday – 06/02/13
  • safe_image.php_It was a really long weekend. Saturday, I led our Kingdom Man Bible class, led our prayer meeting, and then taught our New Members Class. Still recovering.

    We extended the right-hand-of-fellowship to our new members Sunday morning.

    We celebrated the Lord’s Table in both worship services.

    It was nice to meet several of our guests in worship today. I am glad to have friends who recommend our church to their members who are visiting Jacksonville.

    Our Bible Study Fellowship groups began their summer semester. I resumed my class a lesson on the importance of studying the word with other believers. I really missed my class. Next week I plan to get back to 1 Timothy.

    I preached Daniel 7: “God Wins!”

    As the sermon title indicates, I did not try to interpret all the intricate details of Daniel’s vision. I focused instead on the big picture of the text.

    Daniel 7 is the most important chapter in Daniel. Scribes called it the most important chapter in the Old Testament.

    I summarized the Daniel’s vision in three movements:

    1.  The four Beasts rise.
    2. The Ancient of Days sits.
    3. The Son of Man comes.

    Praise God for those who were saved and added to the church today!

    Sunday afternoon, we hosted the Jean Ribault Senior High School baccalaureate service. I was honored to give the keynote.

    Afterwards, Crystal bought me a cherry lime-aid from Sonics. I don’t remember much after that.

    So the NBA Eastern Conference Finals will be decided in a game 7. I am concerned about the Heat. But I think they will pull it out at home.

    After 19 seasons in the NBA, Grant Hill announced his retirement this weekend.Who knows how great his career would have been were not for his injuries.

    I am now starting to pay attention to baseball season.

    Serena Williams has reached the semifinals of the French Open. I do not thing she is getting proper credit for the remarkable winning streak she is on.

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. agreed to fight Canelo Alvarez in September. It will be Mayweather’s toughest fight ever. Looking forward to it.
