Tonight Ryan (the speaker) talked to us about clearing out all of the distractions in our lives that we put ahead of God. He put this 3-columned list of examples up on the screens and I found that so many of those very examples are distractions in my own life! How arrogant are we to think that we can replace Him? How foolish are we to think that those things will quench the thirst of longing that only He can satisfy? Praise Him that His word says,
From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes and have
not kept them. RETURN TO ME AND I WILL RETURN TO YOU, says the Lord of
hosts, Mal. 3:7
We don't derserve it. But He is our God of Grace.
Here's an awesome song, Jimmy, the worship leader sang tonight
