Why Keep Sabbath?
Sabbath never just happens. In our 24/7 world, I have never once seen someone accidentally keep a Sabbath…This simple act of not working revolutionizes our lives by re-centering our identity on being with God rather than on what we do for the world. AJSwoboda
Every white pastor in America needs to pray over this article and ask God what He would have us to do so our churches experience Revelation 7:9-10. Ignoring the problem is not only an affront to the heart of God, it will also cost us future generations if our children and grandchildren look around them in church realize the only part of their lives that are segregated is Sunday morning!
A little over a year ago, I preached a series of four messages at Antioch Church dealing with “God’s Promise of A Special Anointing for Women in the Last Days.” I have recently been asked to provide a way for those messages to be viewed online.
I do not use the word, “revelation,” lightly, but the truths God made real to my own heart through this process felt like that to me and have wound up spurring me on to being my Phd soon with my thesis centered around one aspect of the question of women in ministry.
Here are links to those four messages, in case you are also interested in this subject. You will find there is a fair amount of repetition in each sermon, but also new material in each one. Since I sensed this would turn out to be a foundational series for our church and we never have all of our people present in any one service, I wanted to make sure that I was taking as many of them along on this journey as possible.
Here are the links to the four videos:
As a good steward, I must earn honestly, spend carefully, invest wisely, and give generously. As I do, God will meet my needs and use me to meet the needs of others in His name! (2 Cor. 9:6-14)
