The Preached Word – Minister Sherry Flewellen-Ervin
Sermon Title: “When Jesus Shows Up”
Scripture: Matthew 1:18-23 (NIV)
This past Sunday Minister Sherry Flewellen-Ervin showed up and showed out. She shared the story of Mary and Joseph and how his thoughts were to divorce Mary quietly. But God stepped in and changed Joseph’s mind. Joseph must have been a humble man for he followed God’s plan. When we humble ourselves God shows up and shows out.
As she continued to teach and preach she dropped breadcrumbs, offering things we can do to show our humbleness. Things like treating your temple well, and acting like God has done something for you. The question that made everyone go “hmmm” was “HOW MANY CHANCES DOES HE HAVE TO GIVE YOU OR SHOW YOU FOR YOU TO SEEK HIM AND REMAIN HUMBLE?”
Her three points were:
1. Our sins are forgiven.
2. We are born again.
3. We get another chance.
Join us this Sunday as God’s word is shared. Worship celebration begins at 10 a.m. each Sunday. See you there!
