Today was a very special day at Ethos. I don't know about you but do you have those days at church when you just know that God is doing a deep work in you and others. Well, today was one of those days for me. There was such a sense of freedom at Ethos today, not because of a song, a good video, or an ok message but because of the Cross of Christ.
Let me say this loud and clear the Ethos worship band is AMAZING! They have such understanding of what it means to lead others in the presence of God. I must also admit that todays message was a very personal message to give. The over all theme today was we can't find our significance in our performance (our work and busyness) but in Christ.
We looked that the conversation that Jesus had with Martha in the book of Luke. Martha was using her gifting to serve but her strength became her weakness. Why you might ask, because the verse says she got distracted. As I walked out of service today I felt that God really spoke to all of us on how to break the cycle of become a workaholic...REST REFOCUS RELATIONSHIPS!
Next week we will end this series(close encounters) as we look at Jesus and man who had it all.
P.S. Not sure if I should show you yet but here is our next series brand...this series is going to be hardcore!
