“But an hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth. Yes, the Father wants such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in Spirit and in truth.” – Jesus
During Sunday’s sermon, we looked at the important phrase “grace and peace.” Paul used it when he wrote:
“Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ (Galatians 1:3).”
After an analysis of the Greek word for grace (charis), theologian William Barclay concluded:
“When Paul prays for grace to be bestowed on his friends, it is as if he were saying: ‘May the beauty of the undeserved love of God be on you, so that it will make your life lovely, too.'”
I like that. Grace be with you today and every day.
We lost a spiritual giant today, as Pastor J. Don George went to his heavenly reward. The loss was sudden and unexpected.
He was my pastor growing up, so he is the preacher I have heard more sermons from than any other person. But, he was more than a great preacher to me. He was a life-long example of class and professionalism. I learned so much about leadership by just watching his life. I also learned a lot about friendship by observing how loyal he was to friends. He was a good friend to me.
No one preaches like J. Don George. Here is a one minute clip from 2017 that will build your faith and bring a smile to your face.
