“Job demonstrates that God is after our honesty and not our perceived notion of holiness.” – Pastor Rich Villodas
If I’m being totally transparent, I thought I was going to be watching a sermon that had some ties to WandaVision. I had already planned out how I was going to arrange the notes; what dynamic poses I was going to draw Wanda and Vision in and really I just needed to points to drop in. I was wrong and this sermon had so much more to teach me. You would think at this point I would have learned to not come into a sermon with expectations of what I am hoping to gain from it but rather just let the experience happen as God intended it.
What a sermon though; Pastor Rich was describing my exact experience in cherry picking Psalms that would fit my mood or personality for a given moment. I am fortunate to be in a good place but there are way too many around me that are hurting right now and this sermon is such a great appeal to pray for them in a way that is empathic and useful. I can’t do it justice; I recommend checking it out.
Thanks to Pastor Rich and NLF for a moving and God-filled message!
