So this is a true conversation that Finn had with Hope the other day.
F: What are you doing?
F: Ok, I’m going to sit down and talk to you about Jesus…
Who do you think he is?
H: Well, he is the Son of God, He is God,
F: (interrupting) and our savior!
H: Yes! and our savior!
They kept talking and I didn’t get a chance to hear the rest cause Caleb was hungry and needed to eat right then apparently, but suffice to say, that made my heart melt just a little …
So today was the day. January 12, 2014 was the day I first got up in the pulpit and preached my first sermon. I was given the parameters of giving my testimony rooted in Scripture. One of the funniest parts was that the verse I based my sermon on, (Hebrews 11:6) I had not noticed until just a few weeks ago at one of the Bible Studies Ive been attending since moving up here.
I had already been working on this sermon for over a week and had no idea what I would be saying. Then, over the course of a day and a half, good revealed to me what direction this would take. I took inspiration from that verse, and from a book called The Explicit Gospel by Pastor Matt Chandler.
It only ended up being about 20 minutes, but with my nervousness and lack of experience, Im just fine with that. Thank fully the good people at Pleasant View Community Church posted it very quickly so here it is.
