I attended church yesterday where I was a reader for the early service and then I attended the pastor's Sunday School class. It was Pentecost Sunday, by the way. Much was said about the Spirit during worship and Sunday School. The class is reading the book Radical by David Platt. I missed the first week but quickly picked up a book and followed along. One of the things that was discussed was that if you are attending a seminary exploratory weekend at a PCUSA seminary, you will be told that if you think you have a gift for ministry, you are in the wrong place. The belief is that God equips those who he calls. He does not call those who are equipped. Radical thinking there for me. What does that mean in regards to the call I am feeling? I certainly don't feel equipped to stand before anyone as an "expert".
Then tonight, I attended the women's Bible study. I missed last week due to our busy schedule. The study is from Beth Moore and it is on Revelations. I gathered that we are charged to pray each day for Christ's revelation to us. Then the first thing that was said in the video was to get ready and she quoted from Psalms 81:10
I am the LORD your God,Oh my! Is that my first revelation? Open wide your mouth and I will fill it!!!
who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
Needless to say, I am looking forward to see where this study goes this summer. I am trying to be patient for Christ's revelations.
