  • Notes from Sunday – 10/23/11
  • We had a blessed time of worship yesterday at the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church.

    Thanks to all of our volunteers for your service yesterday. You make it happen!

    Our ensemble, Forgiven, led the musical praise yesterday and did a wonderful job. It was a good time of worship.

    We had a great Fighter Verse this week – Proverbs 1:10: “My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.” This weeks verse(s) is Proverbs 3:5-6.

    Grateful for all the guests who were in worship with us yesterday.

    The world famous BrothaRollins was in the house!

    I met a family from Canada after the last service. They are in town visiting their son who is here in school. They saw our TV broadcast and decided they wanted to go to church. They got lost and passed by our church. The wife suggested that they come here. They walked in and saw me standing there preaching and were so excited. Way cool.

    I preached my final stewardship message for the month. My text was Proverbs 3:9-10. I called it “Godly Wisdom for Money Management.”

    The point of the message: The way to make your money work for you is to make sure you money works for God.

    I have really enjoyed preaching on Christian stewardship and generosity this month. I am also glad that I am done with this series.

    I am still having trouble setting my work to memory. This has been going on for a few weeks now. I think I need a mental break. It is coming soon.

    Praise God for those who were added to the church yesterday.

    Next Sunday I intend to preach on the mission of the church from Acts 1:6-11.

    Last night, I spoke that the chapel service for the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was a great time in the word with the brothers. Grateful to the Jags chaplain, Anthony Johnson, for the opportunity.

    What do you think is going to happen when the Jags take on the Ravens on MNF tonight?

    The Dallas Cowboys beat the St. Louis Rams 34-7 to go 3-3 for the season.

    Before I fell asleep last night, I saw the replay of the Bernard Hopkins/Chad Dawson from a week ago. All I can say is that I am so glad that I did not waste my money ordering that fight.

    The USC Trojans defeated Notre Dame 31-17 Saturday night!!!

    I hear there is a pretty good World Series going on. Not watching. Sorry.

    Does anyone care that the NBA is still locked out and cancelling games?
