Thanksgiving

So for thanksgiving, the family went to NYC and for church on sunday, we went to the Brooklyn Tabernacle led by Jim Cymbala and it was really awesome. I really loved his straight forwardness in preaching. I also loved the choir and the worship… especially where we sang “Oh come let us adore him,” which is my favorite Christmas song. It was really touching and while we were singing the words, the image that was running through my mind was of Jesus’s 2nd return. Jesus was standing there, and while everyone was there, it was as if it was just me and Jesus. And while we were singing the 2nd verse, I could see all the things that we value (houses, cars, ipods, bf/gfs, etc), being left behind as He alone was (and is) worthy of our worship. It was truly a sight of heaven, where we will not only be freed from all our sinful desires, but where we’d see Christ in all his glory!

Oh come let us adore Him
Oh come let us adore Him
Oh come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

For you alone are worthy
For you alone are worthy
For you alone are worthy
Christ the Lord

We’ll give you all the glory
We’ll give you all the glory
We’ll give you all the glory
Christ the Lord

Here’s some other things that I’ve learned at CIU’s chapels:

-It is easier to become a Christian than it is to become a disciple
-tough times don’t last, but tough people do.
-ministry is long and ministry is hard
-one of the evidences of a calling is when the church recognizes it
-we equate calling with fruit nowadays, but that’s not calling… no matter if there’s fruit or not, its a calling and we go for God’s glory!
