Just a mega quick post to thank all of you who prayed for the 2 preaches I was involved in over the weekend.
The Logos Hope event was an immense evening. It’s such an inspiring ship and the main function hall is just breath-taking – so high tech! I recommend it to anyone who hasn’t visited. As planned I preached on Jonah’s prayer (The Gutsiest Prayer Ever Prayed) to a packed room of some 300 young people. I did go a bit nuts at some points (I always do when I speak to youth), but the response to the message was fantastic with at least 6 young people putting their faith in Jesus and shed-loads of youth recommitting their lives to Jesus and His mission. In short the sermon points were:
- Jonah Recognised (2v1-3)
- Jonah Repented (2v4)
- Jonah Rescued (2v6)
- Jonah Rejoiced (2v9)
I really felt God’s help on Sunday morning too as I tackled the issue of depression from Psalms 42+43. The sermon was well received by our largest ever congregation at Hill City. The main thrust of the sermon was to lay out 10 Weapons To Fight For Hope amidst depression. They are:
- Thirst For God (42v1-2)
- Preach To Yourself (42v5)
- Hope In God (42v5)
- Look Forwards With Faith (42v5-6)
- Trust The Sovereignty Of God (42v7)
- Rest In God’s Love (42v8)
- Sing Through The Darkness (42v8)
- Be Real With God (42v9-43v2)
- Pursue Light and Truth (43v3)
- Rejoice In God’s Grace (43v4)
Thanks again for your prayers, I really do believe that they made the difference this weekend.
God bless you.
