There are many Sunday's when I sit in church listening to our Pastor speak and it feels like God is shining a spotlight on me. As if I'm the only person sitting in the sanctuary listening to this message from Him, spoken directly to my heart. It fits my particular circumstances like a glove.
I wonder how many other people sit there on Sunday morning feeling the exact same way. Like God's message was crafted especially for them to hear and feel a certain stirring in their soul. You know, a small voice that says, "Hey you! Listen up!"
Yesterday, in church our Pastor spoke about being a person who overcomes.
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. ~1 John 5:1-3
