Coming back from Pepperdine has left me feeling that my cup is full to overflowing. In fact, I told my church family this morning that “my cup runneth over.” I preached a little longer than usual today and told them that I was sorry that my cup “ranneth” over on them. They were great about it.
One of the things that is so exciting at Creekside right now is the influx of new faces each week. It seems that each Sunday there are new people in the audience who seem to be hungry for worship and to be fed the word. Praise God.
I want to tell you about one such individual who is a new-comer to our family. His name is Jim. From the very beginning of his coming to be with us, Jim began pulling me aside each Sunday and just asking that God would anoint my preaching and that He would fill me up with His Spirit. What a minister Jim is to me! I just pray that our relationship continues to grow in the Lord.
One little tid-bit of information that I thought was so funny. Someone from our church family thought it would be funny to pull one over one me and boy they were right. This morning we woke up to a front yard full of pink flamingos and a sign that said, “Welcome Back To The Flock, Keith.” I will try and get a picture up of that for you to see soon. It is truly hilarious! It is great to be home. God bless you my blog family.
