It was a crazy weekend for us at Cross Point. Nashville had around 4-6 inches of snow this weekend so everyone has been pretty hunkered down. Most local churches were closed, but we opted to keep the doors open and I’m so glad we did.
Each of our campuses made some adjustments to make the day work. And our Programming guys, Matt, Aaron & Darrin quickly pulled together a Ustream option for people to join us online. Literally thousands worshiped with us today!
If you joined us, we were so glad that you were a part of the day!
Here are my notes from today’s message:
Pursuing Wisdom in Words by Pete Wilson
Words are a very powerful thing.
For some of you your self-esteem has been formed by the power of words that were spoken to you.
We are very sensitive to the words spoken to us, but oftentimes we’re not careful about the words that come out of our mouths.
Are you going to allow your words to bring peace or cause dissention?
If you have a mouth problem, you really have a heart problem.
What God is looking for is for our words to bring life.
There is an element of power to our words.
We are impacted by words. It affects our souls. We are designed that way.
There is no such thing as a neutral word. God has designed the human soul where your words will either destroy or build up one another.
Secret of the human soul: Everyone needs healing, no matter how put together they appear. Everyone needs healing!
To be aware of others’ needs, you have to be present, listening, understanding in the moment.
Two questions to think about this week:
Who has God placed in your life?
What do they need to hear you say?
The power is not in the thought. The power is in the word. The power is in saying it.
Say what you need to say this week!
I need to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of our staff for working together to create worship environments at all of our campuses. I appreciate your hearts for people. I appreciate your commitment to one another. I’m so thankful to be on your team! You guys are amazing!
