PRAISE TO THE SPIRIT (4 of 36)
I received a letter this week from a very new
member of church. I had talked about the Jamaica trip
and this member sent a check for $1,000 to go toward
that trip. I said thank you, Lord, lay it on the
hearts of about 90 more to do the same thing. So if
the Lord moves in your heart just right, send me a
check for $1,000. Don't write it to me, write it to
the church and apply it to the Jamaica trip. We are
going to send our young people over there. We believe
God is going to use that in a wonderful way.
On Wednesday nights I want to just dig down in
the Word and give you an in-depth study of the Word.
I think that's why you are here. So, I want to really
give you something that will feed your heart.
It's interesting to see how that from time to
time things which took place when you were young come
back to you. As I have been studying these particular
verses my mind took me back to my home church. I had
the privilege of being brought up in a very wonderful
Bible-believing, soul winning church. But things were
a little different back in those days in the way they
did things. In my home church I guess every Sunday
morning, for the first 18 years of my life before I
went away to college, the service was started with a
particular call to worship. It was called the
Doxology. It went like this:
Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him all creatures here below.
Praise Him above ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
We did that every Sunday morning. When you do
something every Sunday morning if you are not careful,
boredom will set in. One of the reasons you need to
change around is that you don't want to get into
boredom. You don't want things to always be
predictable. It got to be kind of a boring thing. I
got to where I didn't enjoy the Doxology a great deal.
