NLC Email, Saturday 10/7/17:
One of my favorite personal scriptures is found in Psalms 122:1. David states so boldly and confidently, "I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.'” I was wondering exactly why he said that. Could it be that after many years of serving the Lord, that he realized the deep and rich importance of actually entering a physical place that was set aside for worship, for prayer, for hearing the Word, for meeting with God, and for meeting with God's people? I believe so. There is no place on earth like the "house of the Lord." So much happens there!
Do you know what I mean? Have you experienced the richness of being in a bonavide "house of the Lord?" It is exciting, pensive, heartfelt, and moving...all at the same time, and often at different times while the meeting is going on. There is singing, sometimes dancing, praying, kneeling, shouting, and often, silence. It is a unique place where the divine meets the mortal. When we are there, our hearts almost burst with the presence of the Lord!
May I encourage YOU to be a part of what God is doing at our local "house of the Lord" here at NLC? Come, present your praises to Jesus, be in the right attitude and atmosphere to hear the Lord speak to you, to challenge you, to change you for the better. Like David, we really should be rejoicing when someone says, "Let's go the house of the Lord!!"
Tomorrow (10/8/17) a very special speaker will be with us. Allan Huth is the founder and president of the Ezra Project, and the Vice President of the Gideons, International. Pamela and I had the privilege of hearing Brother Huth speak the other night at a Gideons event, and I can attest, he is an anointed servant of the Lord! His experience of serving the Lord expands over a thirty year period. He has traveled around the entire world sharing the love of Jesus to anyone that would listen. You will not want to miss this special presentation (8:30 and 10:45AM.)
See YOU at the "House of the Lord!" Remember, Sunday morning services begin on Saturday night as we prepare spiritually, physically, and emotionally to meet with God.
HE is worth it!
Sincerely in Jesus,
"Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together."
