“The Saviour has rescued us that we might sing the song of the redeemed. May we sing it well. May we sing it constantly. May we sing it passionately. May we sing it for His glory and the advancing of His gospel until the time comes when our songs will never end.” (Bob Kauflin)
“The three-minute rule begins when the final prayer is said or song is sung.
This is not the time to talk to your best friends.
During those first three minutes, two things are going to happen: people who are familiar are going to talk to each other and people who don’t know anyone are going to leave quickly.
This is where it’s crucial.
If you take the time in those first three minutes to talk to the people who aren’t connected, you will have time afterward to talk to your friends who are more likely to stick around.
You have three critical minutes to look immediately around for people who are not connected in the body.”
“In the morning, I read through a number of commentaries and books on the theme of the passage.
These include works that are popular, works that are scholarly, and anywhere in between.
I am like a camel sucking up water.
I fill up both humps and stuff them as full as I can with as much from reading as widely as I can.”
Our trainee pastor at Banstead Community Church, Jimmy, has raised all the money needed for his Pop Up Book on creation to become a reality. You can still pick up a copy of the book but you now have just over a day to do so and then opportunity will be no more. Check it out at popupbible.com.
