BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED
I Corinthians 7:17-38
Thank you Choir. My goodness, we've already had a great sermon. Thank

our lives. For so many here, their thoughts are different; their words

thank you that in Your divine wisdom You did not coerce us into accept-

Spirit, convicted of our sins, we turned to Him and we praise You for
that turning. Lord, tonight You speak. Let me get out of the way so

cross. Let me get out of the way is our prayer, in Jesus blessed and
Holy name. Amen.
