Randy Pimm - 21/05/2017
John 4: 15-19
Date: May 22, 2017
Let me begin by sharing my thanks to Randy Pim for preaching yesterday. Dedra and I are on vacation this week. Randy has been a good friend over the past several years and it is so nice to have such an individual to call on. Camp Allendale is blessed to have such a wonderful director. While I have not heard the message yet, I did get an advance copy of his notes. These five questions today are based upon the sermon slides which he shared with me a copy of weeks ago while we were at the men’s retreat. It is my hope that these questions will help us reflect upon Randy’s message.
1. What is the one mistake from your past which keeps haunting you no matter what you try to do to erase it from your memory?
2. Randy talked about the fact Jesus knows our past and loves us in spite of it. How do the letters to the churches of Revelation (seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3) speak to that point?
3. How has the devil been able to cripple us or destroy us in the past with our mistakes?
4. Randy talked about the life of Paul and how the Lord was able to use his past to make a better future. What is something positive that has come out of a past mistake in your life?
5. In Romans 5:8, Paul talks about the love of God which was demonstrated for us with Christ’s death on cross. Do you know someone today who needs to hear this message and what will we do to share it with them this week?
Thank you for the opportunity to spend some time off with my family. We are blessed to have the opportunity to serve here at Cumberland. May the Lord bless your week!
In His Service,
Giving Up Your Past
Letting go of our mistakes and live forgiven
Your past mistakes are meant to guide you not define you.
Jesus knows our past and loves us in spite of it.
