I can only Imagine

First Sundays are always great at Leesburg Church. It is always a blessing to have our children come out and participate in worship and even lead us in a few songs as well. This one was no different. While some are shy, others are not, and they are trying to remember all the words, and sometimes you get glimpses of that pure heart wanting to worship. Thank God for children who can teach us if we will let them!

We were also blessed to have our Drama Team minister to us through a song entitled “I AM” by Eddie James. They did a great job and the Spirit of God was truly present. We are thankful for the time and dedication they gave to minister to us all!

The Sunday morning sermon was entitled “I Can Only Imagine.” In I Corithians 2 Paul writes about the Wisdom of God versus the wisdom of men. In the midst of this in verse 9, he mentions that “ Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” Paul was trying to inform the Corinthians of great wealth or great knowledge that would be given. He was explaining to them that God has things for them that their minds could not even imagine. We can not even imagine the things that God has planned, prepared, and purposed for us as well. God has great things for you, but not in our wisdom or understanding- only in His. If we want to recognize and see these things we must take the context of this chapter and learn three things - 1) Mature/Grow up in Christ, 2) Not listen to our (or others) wisdom (man’s), and 3) Listen to the Holy Spirit who reveals the great mysteries of God. If we will follow these steps we will experience what we can now only imagine!

God Bless you this week!
