2020-7-26 Main Sermon
Psalm 91:1&2, 9&10, 14
We choose to dwell in the refuge of the Most High. Dwell in unity with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Psalm 133, I Peter 4:17, Ezekiel 9, Malachi 3
It is time for judgment to begin with the family of God. Purification and readying for the next task at hand. We are recipients of His grace and spirit.

Luke 6:36

Qualities of a good waiter. They are …
1.) available
2.) attentive to call of God and cry of the world. Listen to all elements of the Body of Christ. Truth is the truth, no matter who says it.
3.) anticipate what God is about to do. 1 Chronicle 12:32
4.) adapt
5.) appreciation – center of Pauline theology
6.) agape Matthew 25 – to the least of these – brotherly love – a sacrificial act toward the undeserving. A response not of emotion but of the will.
