Good Morning Vineyard Family,
This morning, I read and reflected on the shortest of all the Psalms, Psalm 117. Two verses have profound meaning to me.
Let everyone everywhere shine with praise to Yahweh! Let it all out! Go ahead and praise him!
For he has conquered us with his great love, and his kindness has melted our hearts. His faithfulness lasts forever, and he will never fail you. So go ahead, let it all out! Praise Yah! O Yah! Psalms 117:1-2 TPT
We shine because we have been in God’s presence and His light is reflected off us. Like "glow in the dark" paint that absorbs sunlight, it creates no light but absorbs and then releases light.
The moon is a cold dead rock, but it is beautiful and reflects light that we can see simply because we see the sun's light reflected.
The psalmist says, "we shine with praise." Every time we give honor and praise to God we are taking His light and pointing it back to Him. We are like flashlights that point people in darkness to the source of all light.
Why worship? Because we have experienced God’s love, kindness, and faithfulness. This leads to absolute confidence and being completely sold out to Jesus because He "will never fail you."
So go ahead and worship God. Absorb and reflect His light. In this way, we shine a light in dark places.
Tonight is Family Night. Join us tonight anytime from 5:45 - 6:45 p.m. for a free dinner for the whole family. This week, we'll have a taco bar. Afterward, we will split into groups of kids, youth, and adults. Adults will meet in the auditorium for teaching and discussion on learning to hear God's voice.
Our Family Nights will run through November 2nd and we will start them again in the new year.
This Sunday, Oct. 9th, Levi Brinkerhoff and his family will be with us. You probably remember the interview I did with Levi who is planting a church in Ukraine. You will want to come and hear this update on what God is doing and what is happening in the midst of war.
