Worshipping with the Preached Word

preached-word

It’s amazing to see how worship in our church flows out of the preached Word.

At Harvest London, the leadership and the people really love the Bible. There is a real hunger, a desire to hear the Bible preached. It’s amazing to, week after week,¬†see roughly 600 people truly engage with the text of Scripture as Pastor Norm preaches with power and conviction.¬†There is¬†a¬†tangible love for the Word as he preaches that is infectious. It’s exciting to see how it affects people.

After this Sunday’s service, I was serving at our book table (a natural fit if there ever was). While there, I had some great opportunities¬†to encourage people¬†in their reading, and I even got to¬†give two¬†college-aged young ladies their first Bible, ever.¬†It might be a small thing, but it’s a great privilege¬†to be a part of that.

And to see how Emily has been affected has been just as exciting. There is a¬†boldness that I see growing in her that I absolutely love, where she’s¬†“informally”¬†ministering to¬†people in our congregation and outside of it, striking up potential friendships with new women, talking with them, praying with them… She’s¬†even taking advantage of an opportunity to share the gospel‚ÄĒwith someone she met only briefly downtown on Sunday afternoon.

Perhaps these seem like small things, but I see a deep love for Christ in our church‚ÄĒand a passion for others to know Him and follow Him.

And it’s all flowing out of the preached Word.

It is powerful.

It is effective.

It’s exciting.

It’s worship.

I love it.
