Saturday was a pretty full day for me with meetings, marriage counselings, hospital visits, and birthday parties. My Saturday concluded with me traveling to my hometown of Gary, In to attend the CD release of a colleague of mine, Minister Reginald Hogan and One Nation under God. I had a really good time hearing Zion songs from all of the artists.
When I got to BBC on today, I was on an emotional low. I was uplifted by the worship and as I approached the preaching moment, I felt better and regained my enthusiasm and fervor to preach. I finished our sermon series entitled, "The Church as the Lord sees it". The sermon was entitled, The Church that made the Lord sick, from Revelation 3:14-22. Here's my outline.
A. The Lord’s Person
B. The Laodicean’s Problem
2. Christ’s Admonishment
3. Christ’s Announcement
A. His Presence
B. His Promise
The Lord really blessed us today at BBC! We closed out today with a "Go Down Moses" celebration that was sponsored by our Mother's and Deaconess. Our special guests was the Macedonia Baptist Church of South Bend and their pastor, Pastor Ray Owens. It was a historical look through poetry and song at what God has brought us through. I was amazed again at how blacks have overcome adversity. We truly have something to shout about!! There were 30,000,000 Africans that died in the Middle Passage, and we still rise!! Worthy is the Lamb!
