Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: Ultimate Truth Sermon Title: Surgery that Heals Your Soul
Delivered On: September 22, 2019
Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. (Lamentations 3:40)
“Lord, give me the strength and willingness to turn my eyes inward, to allow your light to examine and expose all that is within me. Then guide me where you want me to go, how you want me to change, and show me how to become more like Jesus."
Commit each day to shine the light of Jesus within yourself and be painfully honest about what you see. Then ask the Holy Spirit to strengthen you and give you wisdom and the next steps to grow and mature in your walk with Him.
