Reflections on worship service this morning –
“Come Just as You Are”
The invitation this morning at church tied several things from the worship service together. It was a powerful service that emphasized our need for Jesus and His willingness to receive us. The song Karen and I did interpretive movement to was “People Need the Lord” and the sermon was on asking the Lord these questions – “What do you want from me? What do you want me to do, Lord?” For the rich young ruler, it was to give up his property and possessions. For some, it might be to give up our time, our talent, our energy, or our strength to serve Him.
The point of the message was that Jesus deserves our heart-felt commitment to Him since He willingly gave Himself for us at the cross. I will remind us all that He did all this for us out of love. Let’s let our response to Him be done the same way. “We love Him because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19)
