Want More?

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

If you were not in worship last Sunday you missed a great day. I would recommend streaming last week’s service. You can do that from our web site. The band was in fine form, and our guest preacher the Rev. Gabe Jolly of Hopewell Baptist near Booneville, Mississippi pulled us into God's word, taking us to a place where we did not want to leave.

I heard Fred Craddock, master preacher, say that we preachers ought to end our sermons just as the congregation is most engaged with our sermon. This leaves the congregation “wanting more.” The “more” that is wanted might not be more preaching by the preacher, but rather more of God. Craddock was a master at this sort of abrupt, unexpected ending. In so many of his sermons, he ended just when the sermon was most intense. The sermon therefore became a catalyst, a springboard to more thought, a door into a deeper experience of God.

May you get on God's “springboard.” Watch the stream of last week. Grab a great study Bible and find a quiet place for some time to read and reflect. Attend worship this week. Hear the call of God and place yourself where there is a “deeper experience of God.”

For further reflection, read John 10:11-18.

Prayers: For Syria, North Korea, Russia, The United States, Colorado, Denver Metro, Board Rooms, School Home Rooms, Bedrooms or wherever there is tension and unresolved conflict. Let us seek peace at arm’s reach.

We hope to see you tomorrow night, April 19th at the Heflebower Funeral Home. Pastor Dan Hettinger (who has preached at GGCC before) will be presenting on “Dealing with Loss and Grief” from 7pm-830pm. The address is 8955 S. Ridgeline Blvd Ste 100, HR CO 80129. We will be looking for you.

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
