SCRIPTURE

But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper [paraklētos] will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.

~John 16:7, NASB

QUOTE

As the sun can be seen only by its own light, so Christ can be known only by His own Spirit.

~Robert Leighton

I am guilty of dreaming what it would be like to be in the presence of Jesus as were His disciples during the incarnation. All insecurities would flea in His presence because there is nothing He cannot handle. Yet He told the disciples it was too their advantage that He go away. Just how could it be an advantage?

Have you noticed in the O.T. that God is with people. He was with Abraham, He was with Jacob, He was with Moses, Joseph, David, Elijah and on and on. You cannot find this kind of language in the N.T. Thanks to Christ, God is not merely with us, He is in us. Paul said in Romans 8:1, Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. This phrase “In Christ” is found 87 times in the N.T. God with us is good, God in us is better. [Kyle Idleman, “Not a Fan”]

  • We got a dust settler last night: believe it or not, our corn still looks good but the patch I saw near the school looks like it has already bit the dust. They say it will break 100* on Wednesday. We need a good hurricane. Note, I said “good hurricane,” one that will bring us rain without plowing into the coast.
  • Happy Father’s Day.

Order of Worship In The Future Church

PASTOR: “Praise the LORD!”

CONGREGATION: “Hallelujah!”

PASTOR: “Will everyone please turn on their tablet, PC, iPad, smart phone, and Kindle Bibles to 1 Corinthians, 13:13. And please switch on your Bluetooth to download the sermon.”

P-a-u-s-e……

“Now, Let us pray committing this week into God’s hands. Open your Apps, BBM, Twitter and Facebook, and chat with God”

S-i-l-e-n-c-e

“As we take our Sunday tithes and offerings, please have your credit and debit cards ready.”

“You can log on to the church Wi-Fi using the password ‘LordIOU.’

The ushers will circulate mobile card swipe machines among the worshipers:

  1. Those who prefer to make electronic fund transfers are directed to computers and laptops at the rear of the church. b. Those who prefer to use iPads can open them. c. Those who prefer telephone banking, take out your cell phones to transfer your contributions to the church account.

The holy atmosphere of the Church becomes truly electrifying as ALL the smart phones, iPads, PCs and laptops beep and flicker! It is especially colorful if you dim the house lights.

Benediction and Closing Announcements.

  1. Don’t miss your small group meeting on facebook.
  2. Thursday’s Bible study will be held live on Skype at 1900hrs GM
  3. You can follow your Pastor on Twitter this weekend for counseling and prayers.
