Working With Him

Sunday August 13, 2017
Pastor Sydney was talking about the reason why it was a little warm in the sanctuary. There had been one of the air conditioning systems down. However, Pastor Sydney mentioned that we should not be concerned about the building, but to be concerned with the temperature of your heart. Not to be luke warm. Asked by Pastor Sydney, “How long are you going to hault between two points?” Our circumstances don’t matter in the day that we are living in. “Are we showing up for work?” Pastor Sydney mentions that it is about our identity. It’s no longer about me [or you]. It’s about Him who lives in me [or in you].

Main Message – Pastor Sydney reads of 1 John 4:7-8 and talks about responding from a place of love. 1 John 14:12 and 1 John 14:21 was read from by Pastor Sydney. We need to examine ourselves and ask are we being the blessing? He mentions that we have to be rooted and grounded in love.He also mentions about not putting pressure on the person, but to instead put the pressure onto God. Be like Jesus. Pastor talked about an experience with an airline that he was not happy with. The worker that helped him multiple times was just always slow and that over time it just became frustrating. The worker happened to be a pastor and mentioned to Pastor Sydney what message he preached on and Pastor Sydney mentioned to the worker that he spoke on the same exact message or bible verse. The worker had not known that Pastor Sydney was a pastor. The worker mentioned that he always knew that there was something different about Pastor Sydney because he was always patient and kind, despite all of the frustration caused by the airline. Pastor Sydney reads out of Colossians 1:27 and 2 Corinthians 6. Three key points to keep with you are A)Treat a person as if they are valuable. B) Know that Jesus died for them. C) Make it your first priority that He is who you represent. Romans 6:16. So remember who you are in Christ and that in any situation to display, be, and do love!
