This weekend’s message is titled, “TOO OLD FOR TIME OUT.” When kids are young, it’s so much easier to manage them and guide them. But, when they are older, it is so much harder to do that. They have a mind of their own and many times they do things that are contrary to our will. How should we handle that? This is a very important message for all parents, whether your kids are older or on their way.
In Luke 2 we meet Simeon who was directed by the Holy Spirit to recognize the coming of Jesus Christ. The Bible describes him as a person who was just and devout, hope filled, and full of grace and truth. These are the characteristics of a person who is under the authority of the Holy Spirit. What the world needs is to see men and women who are led by the Holy Spirit. Our community needs to see us walking in integrity, filled with hope for the future, speaking the truth in grace, and pointing people to Jesus.
