I had the honor of preaching in one of our Sunday services on Mother's Day. The passage from the Bible was Revelation 3:1-6. In this section Jesus calls out the ancient Church of Sardis as being spiritually asleep. Jesus tells them to Wake up!
About a month ago I was listening to Kari Jobe's version of the 'Revelation Song'
while reading through Revelation chapters 3 and 4. The following is what I wrote in my notebook based upon what I was listening to and reading that day.
I decided to include what I wrote, in my sermon today.
Here is what I wrote:
Jesus is Huge.
He is Worthy.
He is THE Almighty.
Jesus is the one was and who is and who is to come.
Jesus is the Alpha and Omega,
The first and the last, the beginning and the end.
Nothing compares to Him,
Nothing competes with Him,
Nothing threatens Him,
Nothing overcomes Him,
Nothing Holds Him Back,
Nothing Contains Him,
Nothing Surprises Him,
Nothing Makes Him Fearful or Scared or Worried.
Jesus is the One and Only who is worthy to receive Glory and Honor and Power,
For In Him all things were created and Because of His Will everything exists,
By Him, For Him and Through Him!
How could anyone of us be spiritually asleep in the presence of Jesus!
Jesus’ Authority and
Demand our full attention!!!
I ended the morning reading from Ephesians 5:14, I love this passage:
"Wake up, O sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you."
