Sermon Recap for May 24

Counting down, 1 more Sunday to go in Almyra. I will dearly miss being here. I also look forward to the challenges ahead.

It is somewhat appropriate that this sermon was focused on the Holy Spirit. One of my challenges in recent months has been remembering that I'm easily replaceable, but the Holy Spirit is not. As a pastor, I am both important AND disposable in the grand scheme of things.

Here's the sermon:

May 24, 2015 John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15 (audio link)


I. On our own or in His power?

II. Not to draw attention to Himself....testify to Christ!

III. Righteous judgment comes via the Spirit.

IV. Sin, which the world denies, is still a problem. And there will be judgment

V. Christian maturity takes time--you are not instantly mature and wise

VI. The ongoing relationship with God is required for our growth. Through the Spirit we draw near.

VII. The Spirit does not draw us to Himself but to Christ!

It's hard to preach when there's potluck food aroma wafting down the hallway!


Morning Sermon: Luke 24/Acts 1 (direct audio link)




Evening Sermon: Revelation 4 (direct audio link)


Concluding Notes:
1. I do have the rough audio of Sunday Night’s Q&A session, but I’m not sure yet that it’s useful for posting.
2. I am not sure how to improve video quality with the current equipment.

4. Yes, I think I’m not getting a lot of plays on each service or hits on each blog, but in total it’s a decent reach. A social media expert might suggest changes, but this is free-to-cheap, where I have to live right now.
