The Preached Word – Pastor Derrick Wright
Scripture: Isaiah 27:1-6
Sermon Title: “It’s Time to Blossom”
Pastor Derrick Wright needs no introduction. If you have heard him share God’s word, then you already know he does it with flare, humor, and a teaching style that you won’t soon forget. He talked about the three seasons in our life: Being good (season 1 as a child); Looking good (season 2 as a young adult); and, Feeling good (season 3 as an adult). After breaking down the meaning of each season Pastor Derrick he asked the question: “What season are you in?”
THE LESSON: 1. Seed – the word of God which is in you; 2. Roots – which manifest with care; 3. Bud – comes from good seeds with deep roots; 4. Blossom – you grow and blossom (God has you); and 5. Fruit – develops from the planting and caring of the seed.
The takeaway points were:
1. Do the best you can where you are
2. Remember life’s lessons because God does not waste experiences
3. God will take care of your future.
We are still marching, not retreating! Join us each Sunday at 10 a.m. and hear another timely, and inspiring, message. Peace & Blessings…
