Sermon Notes

This Week's Message

Read With Your Soul

What keeps me from knowing Jesus isn't mental deficiency, it's misplaced desire.


Psalm 100:4 NLT

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name."

"Thank You God, for what You have done for me. Father, I come to You in prayer today thankful that I am Your child. I know I make mistakes but You have forgiven me and adopted me as Your own."


Ephesians 1:16-17 NLT

"…..I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God."

“Father, show me Your glory. I need my heart to be flooded with Your light and understanding. Help me to see insight in Your Word that can only come from You. Reveal truth to me so that I can grow in my knowledge of You.” 

Use Me

Acts 1:8 NLT

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

“Father, I don’t just want information about You, I want to be transformed by You. Use me to be a blessing to You and those around me. Use me to encourage and bless someone.”


Psalm 90:14 NLT

"Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives."

“Father, I want You to be the only thing that satisfies my soul. Give me a desire for Your Word, especially when I don’t feel like reading it. Help me to turn away any desire or pleasure that is competing with Your place in my life. Kindle a fire in my soul for You.”


Psalm 86:11 NLT

"Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you."

“Father, teach me how to listen to Your voice. Holy Spirit, teach me how to read Your Word and guide me in my understanding of Your truth. Teach me to pray through Your word. Teach me how to love my family through Your word. Teach me about the greatness of Your love towards me so that I can live the abundant life You promise.”
