letgodFor the last few months, I have been re-thinking a number of things.  One of them is the propensity to join in / pile on people or pastors or churches or denominations, etc. that are not doing things the way I like or who doing things that are different, etc.

Perhaps it was a message I wrote and delivered not long ago on judging that put me over the edge on this.  And yet…maybe it was the God-thing that happened:

On Saturdays when in the Metroplex, I have been attending Center Point Church in North Richland Hills.  It is my touch of contemporary worship and the pastor is a great Bible-teacher!

On the evening before I was to preach in Mineral Wells, Pastor Jay said, almost word for word what I had written in my message for the next day.  Once home, I checked it out … and yes … there it was … virtually word-for-word what I had written and what he said.  When I mentioned this to him the following week, his comment was, “Well, we do preach from the same book!”

WHAT WAS IT IT HE SAID? WHAT HAD I WRITTEN?

HERE IT IS:

Lately I have been moved to say (and live out): No more potshots on pastors or ministries or denominations … if they are not of God, God will deal with them; if they are of God, I had better leave them alone!
