Chasing After God

From Pastor Mike's "good morning" message in the bulletin:

Kent Crockett says, “When I first enrolled in seminary, I found an apartment room next to a railroad crossing. I wondered why the apartment rent was so cheap—and found out the first night. A train came through in the middle of the night, blasting its horn. It didn’t just wake me up, but also nearly gave me a heart attack! Every night when the train came through, it blew the horn. At first I thought about changing apartments, but then I started getting used to the nightly awakenings. I would wake up for a few seconds, then go right back to sleep. Eventually I got where the train horn didn’t even wake me up. I hardened my heart to the train and couldn’t hear it any more. The same hardening process occurs when God speaks to our hearts and we don’t respond. Eventually, we stop hearing His voice because our hearts have become hard.

Today, many of us are like Ken, when we here the gospel message that we’ve heard a thousand times before, we turn it off like a train whistle. We need God to awaken our hearts so that we can hear His voice.

“Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts” (Hebrews 4:7)

In your bulletin this morning is a section for you to take notes. You will find two questions on it. “What is God saying to me this morning?” And, “what am I going to do about it?” Our prayer is that, when you leave, you have answers to those questions, and you will depart knowing that God loves you.

Think about that.

In His Grip, Pastor Mike
