God’s Nature in the Stuff of History by Pastor Melissa Scott

May 3, 2015 · Posted in Pastor Melissa Scott 
Jesus was a friend of sinners: He loved them. I want the 
world to know we love them. We don’t have to condone their sin;
we don’t have to wrap holy robes around ourselves. I don’t think
Jesus made a big deal out of His spirituality. I don’t believe
we have to make people so uncomfortable with our presence all
the time.
If you have God in you, you do not have to work so hard to
announce it. You will be different, because “He that saith he
abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he
walked.” If you are totally committed to Him, if nothing
matters as much to you in this life as doing God’s will, then
that will make you different. His burden will consume
you. You will be aware of His presence in the ordinary stuff
of the day when you iron clothes in the home, when you drive
down the freeway and when you work on the job. The majority
of this community will never come to hear a preacher preach,
but they will watch your sermon, that bringing of God’s
nature into the stuff of history.
