Pastor Kenny was preaching on Saturday night from Colosians 1:3-14.
Verses 11-14 landed powerfully on me before he even started preaching:
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
- God strengthens – according to his glorious might!
- The Father qualifies us for the inheritance And delivers us from the domain of darkness AND transfers us to the kingdom of Jesus!
- Jesus provides forgiveness of sins!
Put together, the endurance and patience WITH JOY and thankfulness make sense – God has surrounded us with all that we need for today and the hope of a glorious future with Jesus.
Then Pastor Kenny started preaching and I learned a whole lot more! Plus, he mentioned the disability ministry a couple of times, and that always encourages me.
May your Lord’s Day be equally refreshing, emboldening and encouraging!
