Stuff I Love

I love my wife and kids.

I love coming home to them and yell out Extreme Makeover Home Edition Style, “Hello friends and family” and then get all kinds of hugs and kisses.

I love when our Sunday worship goes up a few levels of volume and there is no doubt God is being praised

I love when God is praised in small and quiet ways as well.

I love seeing old friends, especially people who I didn’t know turned to Christ since the last time I had seen them.

I love when people accept an invitation to come on Sunday and actually show up!

I love when people get sharpened in their faith.

I love when God’s Word is read and lived out.

I love when I find something new in scripture that had never jumped out at me before or something old that is read in a new light.

I love when we have to add chairs in a Bible class as people keep coming in the door.

I love when I see long time Christians, nearing the end of their lives, who are at peace with things.

I love when I see family I haven’t seen in a long time.

I love hearing about kingdom work taking place, lives being changed, God being honored, and eternal differences being made.

I love when hungry kids get fed, when criminals rehabilitate, and when grace and mercy are poured out on the undeserving.

I love meeting people whose faith is greater than my own and when they stretch me.

I love God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit

I love when disagreement doesn’t keep brothers and sisters in Christ from acting like brothers and sisters in Christ.

I love when people are baptized into Christ…that never gets old.

I love lists that should just keep going on and on but finally come to an end on a high note!

Who/What do you love…
