When Charles Billingsley gives a sermon, he definitely leaves you with a couple of things to think about along with some great facts and stories. This Sunday at Thomas Road Baptist Church was no exception. This note was a little difficult because there was SO MUCH that I had to cut and I already I feel like there’s a lot of inside information that you might not get if you haven’t seen it but I definitely recommend checking it out, this one is all about HOPE!
Sermons like the one Scott Bullman preached this weekend at TRBC always stick with me because the idea of angels out there walking among us is interesting, comforting, and terrifying all at the same time. I’ve been thinking about them ever since the sermon. I remember Charles preaching a sermon about them a couple of years ago, I didn’t digitally sketch that one so I may need to dig it up and redo it!
Anyway, God bless your week!
It’s no secret that I draw at church but this last weekend my 9-year-old wanted to stay with us instead of heading back to his service so he could draw. I can’t express how happy this made me!
Although just like me he ended the service with black ink all over his hand. 😅
Thomas Road Baptist Church has a great series leading up to Christmas! Learned a lot in this one…
I can’t imagine how hard it is for a pastor to preach a sermon about giving; I think Pastor Jonathan did a good job at Thomas Road Baptist Church of balancing that line pretty well and also calling out some of the huckster-style tactics that we see from “pastors” on those late night infomercial type things. Giving shouldn’t be about guilt and it definitely shouldn’t be about reward. If done properly, people shouldn’t even really know that you gave at all.
My brother-in-law is the lead pastor over at Mosaic Church and it’s a crime that I haven’t sketched out his sermons before because they are top notch 👌🏼! If you’re looking for direction in resolving conflict start here! Well, talk to God first, then circle back in this direction…
There’s a lot to talk about!
First – yesterday’s message at Thomas Road Baptist Church was great! I think any Daniel sermon series would end in the lion’s den and in a weird way I was dreading it because drawing fur is not my strong suit. I initially had more lions in the scene but it was becoming a mess so I trimmed it. Anyway, it’s so true that “Doing the right thing will make you a target!” If you missed it, I’d highly recommend checking it out.
Second – I have the last two sermon notes by Charles but I kinda tried making them connect into one big sermon note and it’s been more work than I thought. Also, I have perfectionist tendencies so it’s not done yet. I’ll post it up
this week when it’s ready!
Third – I have some more plans for the sketchy sermon site; at the moment it’s kinda neglected but with the changes Instagram is making and the “pay for play” incentive model of social media I’m wanting to make the website more of a hub for this stuff and just use social media to announce updates and changes but not have them live on social media alone. We’ll see how it goes.
Are you still reading? Wow, high-five for you!! 🙌
There were a lot of notes to take at Thomas Road Baptist Church this week including one of the more hardcore verses in the Old Testament (Daniel 3:18.) Pastor Jonathan spoke of having an “Insane Faith” and how we should never compromise our faith for popularity considering the price these people were willing to pay.
I thought about making this one a two page spread but I’m not sure how it would work. I don’t think I’m done with this sermon yet; it’s one of those that sticks with you for a while.
“Life is not fair!” So TRUE! 😅
I’m enjoying this series about Daniel; I’ve always wondered why we always refer to Daniel by his Hebrew name but his friends by their Babylonian names? 🤔
