07 Jun What’s your fancy?
“You can tell a lot about a man by the shoes he wears.” – Forest Gump.
If you missed this past week, then you didn’t hear a POWERFUL message from our Senior Pastor, Dr. Benji Kelley, AND a timeless clip from the epic film, Forest Gump. What a great way to kick off our new series, SHOES.
If honest, while listening to this message, I had the thought, “What would people say if they judged me by the shoes I wore. What would someone conclude about my life based on my kicks that day?” Scary, huh? The more I thought about it, the more I was reminded of how thankful I am that I have a heavenly Father who looks at the heart and not my shoes. A Father who deals with the condition of my heart continually, and not the scuff marks on my shoes. (Let the church say, “Amen!!”)
This week we’re stepping into a fancier style of shoe on the market! You don’t want to miss “Wingtips with Nicodemus”. In fact – if you have a pair, I dare you to throw them bad boys on and meet us at church!
Lastly, with summertime almost here, I know you may have some plans to relax and recharge. I encourage you to take a portion of that much-needed downtime physically and allow God to fill you spiritually. Allow God’s truths, found in His word, to be your sustainer as you continue to pursue His heart. Ask yourself the question, “What do my shoes say today? What do you want them to reflect tomorrow?”
Friends, there’s nothing more encouraging than seeing the community gather in worship on Sundays, receiving all that God has in store. Let’s make it a good rest of week – we’re excited to see you on Sunday for the next installment of our series, SHOES!
