Here’s my sermon for the Day of Pentecost. This sermon just spilled out of me when I sat down to write it. I guess I’ve had it building up inside for a while, just waiting for the opportunity to preach it.
The sixth verse on my guitar case is wedged along the bulge where the guitar’s body starts. It’s from the Gospel of John, my favorite book, and it’s about love — which is the best thing ever.
This week on devo180, we continue our three week series looking at verses of scripture that have been and continue to be special to me. Today, we have a few thoughts about inadequacy.
The fourth quotation on the guitar case is the last one on the neck of the guitar. It comes from the prophet Isaiah, and it is a promise from God to us, one that we all need to hear from time to time.
The third quotation on my guitar case is written vertically down the neck. It comes from a psalm of lament, but itself is a verse of praise. How could these two things go together?
The next quote is underneath the first and flipped upside down on the guitar case. The psalmist prays that God “teach discernment.” What does that mean?
Today’s devo springs from the quotation at the top of my guitar case. What does it mean to be “called to freedom?”
This week on Devo180, we begin a look at a series of Bible verses that have meant something to me for quite some time. They are enshrined on my old guitar case, and we’ll be looking at them over the next few weeks.
