Surely I’m not the only non-spiritual person who has the tendency to check out of a morning worship service when there’s a guest speaker? At least that’s been my habit. Sometimes I’m all in but most of the time my mind wanders.
“Where’s my pastor this week?”
“What’ll be for lunch later?”
“Why is my fantasy football team so terrible?”
Ok. So maybe I think that when my pastor is preaching too.
This last week we had a guest speaker though who blew me away with a thought that had never crossed my mind:
He said that there have been two times in history when the entire world knew who God was. At first, I was skeptical. How could that be true? Then he hit it: in the garden and after the flood. So at some point, someone dropped the ball. They didn’t pass on the good news. I was so convicted I paid attention during the whole rest of the service!
How are you ensuring you’re passing on the Good News about Jesus to your family and not dropping the ball?
What was something a guest speaker at your church said that really hit home?
