chad's sermon last night in ignite was great!!
i am guilty of hearing sermons & then doing nothing with what i had just heard. ((( i could write a whole post about this!))) is this only me???
he talked about how we say "i love" for any & everything that we really, really like...
i love chocolate
i love lucy
i love my new flats
i love this song
i love summer time
i think you get my point
we also say "i love God" but we shouldn't be putting Him in the same "i love you's" with all the rest of these things.
he encouraged & challenged the students & adults in the room to be "captivated" by God. instead of saying "i love God, say "my heart is captured by Him"
that we should not be just camping out enjoy life, but we are working hard at knowing Him more. that we need to do things in life to get close to God, sacrifice some things, some sleep, some meals. alot of times we say we want to be close, want a heart like God's but our actions don't follow thru.
i went to bed thinking about this & woke up still on my mind.
i know there is a WHOLE LOT more i can be doing for my heart to be all His.
