ACROSTICS

 

           I’m sure most of you know that I like “acrostics” and similar ways of using the English language.  On August 14th, I used “SAD” and “GlAD” in a sermon:

SAD:   Seasonal Affectiveness Disorder;   GLAD:  God’s Love Always Delights.  At the close of the service, Meg, alias “Millie”, handed me a piece of paper as the choir walked by me at the entry to the sanctuary.  “Millie” came up with a very good acrostic for SAD (the sermon got her wondering  (maybe wandering) thoughts rolling.  Her acrostic read SAD:  Satan Always Destroys.  Wow!  What great insight.  It made my day.  My sermon got someone’s thought process into high gear.  Of course there is the one we repeat together once in awhile that goes back to me freshman in college days and an evening devotional gathering that a fellow student shared and I have never forgotten: JOY!  Jesus first, Others second, Yourself  last.

 

         On September 11th, I preached a sermon titled “Limitless Horizons” tied in with Hebrews 11:1-16.  I closed the sermon with the following:

 

Christian faith makes life an exciting adventure.  Our faith is summed up in this commitment:

 

Like David, we will lift up our eyes to the hill from which our help comes.

Like Abraham, we will trust God implicitly.

Like Moses, we will suffer rather than enjoy the pleasures of sin.

Like Job, we will be patient and faithful in all circumstances.

Like Joseph, we will turn our backs on all evil advances.

Like Gideon, we will advance even when our friends are few.

Like Andrew, we will strive to lead others to Christ.

 

 

Let us always remember, personally and as a church, that when we follow God’s leading, our horizons are unlimited.  He leads us from one blessing to another.

 

God bless!

Fred
