    • Not a bad idea. Since the Lord has not impressed on me a sermon, no members of the congregation are sick or in the hospital. No phone calls from people whose marriages are in trouble, no phone calls from persons that are depressed or suffering from anxiety then perhaps we can say, obviously the Devil has not thought it necessary to medal in our lives because obviously we are not living up to what Christ would want us to be. Because of this, instead of a sermon, we all need to spend some time on our knees this morning asking God to take control of our lives and our church.

      Praying that God will change us and send his Holy Spirit to lead in everything we say and do. Then as a congregation we may again feel our need for God because the Devil will begin to work against us, to discourage us, to make us sick, to put road blocks up to stop our progress in becoming more Christ like.

      Yes, a sermon is out of the question, instead a season of prayer to surrender our lives and our will to Christ. For Him to take control of our church, our lives, our homes and our finances.

      I wonder, just wonder how this would be received?

        • But in our entertainment driven world I often wonder if many attend church to be entertained instead of spiritually fed. So sitting with nothing to listen to would constitute agony by the masses.

          • A sign of the Holy Spirit is not in outward show, but in faithful service. What is faithful service? Being part of the great commission as outlined in Matthew 28:18-20 and the Holy Spirit living out through you as in the fruits of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-26. That’s is what being Spirit filled is about.

            Yesterday afternoon, I had a conversation with a struggling Christian. Later this morning, my sermon that evolved from that conversation will be posted. I hope you will enjoy it.
