These are the notes from a communion message I shared in the Northwest Region of the Boston Church of Christ on February 22, 2015:
Today is our financial presentation, and I thought I’d share from Philippians today for communion. There are two reasons for this.
"Every word of God is flawless." Proverbs 30:5
Christ himself said, "It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law." Luke 16:17 Every now and then, after spending some time digging in the scriptures, an obscure word begins to radiate eternal meaning.
I love the smell and feel of a new thing I just bought. The experience of opening the box of a new iPhone is exhilarating, so is pushing the “purchase” button on Amazon.com.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with loving to get new stuff. There is, however, something wrong with any obsession. The problem with obsession is, we frequently don’t know we’re obsessed, when in reality we are.Statistically this is true of us in the US. How do we know this?
