2009-12-20-1030 Pastor Loran Livingston is the speaker this
morning December 20th, 2009 in the 10:30 service.
Scripture: Luke 2:25-35; 39-45; Psalm 63
- Simeon was waiting for the consolation of Israel... How much of my life is spent waiting for Jesus?
- Anna served in the temple day and night... How much am I serving?
- There must be a love for God that drives us; must not serve out of obligation and fear, but gladness
- The shepherds searched for Jesus as soon as they were stirred
- The wise men pursued Jesus, from the east (far off)
- We must wait, serve, search and pursue Jesus
- We all go through lulls; God wants you more than you want Him
- When crowds got big, Jesus began speaking in parables so that only the truly committed would continue with Him
- We must go after Him to understand what He said
- Parable of the sower: only one scenario represents the saved
- No such thing as a carnal Christian... a casual Christian
- If Jesus is in you, you will bear fruit
