Lisa: Edwards, Colorado
Ed: Edwards, Colorado.
Lisa: But she flew in to be able to be here with Jill and Greg.
Ed: That’s great man, right there. (Applause)
Lisa: So Ed was saying in the earlier service that to be a Christian witness often it is more important to live it out than as far as what you say. People would rather see a sermon than hear one. And the greatest thing to me is if you live, you know, Adam, on the campus with uncertainty, and, Kay, as far as a future with a family, and, Greg and Jill, economically. When we live in these uncertain times the people are watching us and they see, “Man, they’ve got all this stuff that is just uncertain, but there is a peace because of the certainty of Christ in their life.” What a magnet. That is what people are searching for; it’s the hope. In the Bible when you see that you use the word Hope it’s not that “Oh I hope that would happen,” it is an assurance that it will happen and God says he is our hope and he is our certainty.
Ed: He is. So as you look at these people’s lives as you identify with them, do you have a certainty in the midst of uncertainty? Do you have that anchor, that absolute, that comes from a vital relationship with Jesus Christ? Because I’m going to tell you something, God’s way works. Like Lisa said, people would rather see a sermon than hear one any day. The question you need to ask yourself is, what kind of sermon is your life? What are you preaching? I’m prayerful you’re preaching an authentic certain life grounded in Jesus Christ.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: C3 Global Aid
