I'm going to be exhausted today but it's all good!!!

What a day it's going to be at Celebration Church today!  It's Labor Day weekend and I'm going to be laboring, for sure.  I know it's going to be a great Sunday despite the holiday and people being away, because God's going to be there, doing stuff! 

There is no question I'm going to come home tired but I'm sure it'll be a great exhaustion.  After leaving for worship rehearsal at 7:30 am, I'll conduct practice, teach my class at 9:30 and then preach at 10:30.  I wasn't going to be preaching this week but then Larry felt the church needed to hear my teaching on the subject of work.  It's labor day and I'm going to teach a message entitled, "Are you working hard, or hardly working?"  Larry had a message for today but he's feeling that it's meant for next Sunday so that's what we'll do.

This morning in my class I'm teaching about the fight for your faith.  This is an important topic I'm passionate about.  Then again I rarely speak about things I'm not passionate about.  LOL
A Sunday afternoon nap is a definite order today after I stand and lead/speak for five or six hours.  It's all good...there is no greater joy than to fulfill your purpose...laboring for the One who has called you.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Excellent teaching on Criticism

My friend Pastor Leanne posted this today on her Myspace blog and I thought it was excellent and so timely. It's a blog post from Pastor Perry Noble , about criticism. I think it's perfect for the pastors at Relevant Church right now, as well as any other person going through this. I would like to note that when he says, "when God begins to move" it wouldn't necessarily just pertain to your church but to your life, your family, your marriage, anything that concerns you. I have found that the greater God does things in my life and the more He blessed me the more I should expect it. This teaching is good, so good I was almost wavin' a hanky in my office. Okay, here we go... You Will Be Criticized When God Begins To Move–Expect It And Get Over It. (Pastor Perry Noble at ) I've never met a devil worshiper–to my knowledge that is. When I first became a Christian I was convinced that I needed to do all that I could to be ready to c
