Extravagant Devotion: What stops me hearing from God? | Pastor Zamar Alkiezar | Sunday September 12th 2021
Today’s focus in our series developing an Extravagant Devotional lifestyle continued the call to the most important component in an extravagant devotional life. The valuable element everyone has is TIME! Pastor Jason opened the worship service with a self reflective question. “What are you holding onto for satisfaction in life? The lures of the world or God? Pastor Zamar focused on this question in his teaching time.
Our Church Worship Director, Christy Eskes, shared on the practical aspects of cultivating a lifestyle of worship. She broke down some practical techniques believers can incorporate into their daily life to build a stronger dwelling place for Jesus.
Just as a master gardener devotes time to cultivating the soil, seeding the soil, and watering the seeds, which takes time, we are encouraged to apply the same principles to our Extravagant Devotion toward the King Jesus.
Today’s teaching invites us to meditate on cultivating a deeper devotional life with Jesus.
In the Gospel of John Pastor Craig encouraged us to become a deeper, more intimate worshipper in Spirit and Truth with Jesus.
Throughout today’s teaching we’re asked the question, where’s your heart with Jesus?
