SERMON NOTES: ALTAR’D #2

Throughout the Fall our focus was “Heart Check”

  • “God wants to work in us so he can work with us and through us
  • We need to continue to allow the Lord to work in our hearts but He is working in us with a purpose
  • As we come into 2019 my heart is stirred that we will individually and corporately go after the callings and purposes of God in our lives. IT’S TIME!

Romans 12:1 TPT – 1 Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.

The key: I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifice!

From my Heart: Some Thoughts After the Toronto Van Attack

Tomorrow at Toronto City Church as we gather to worship there is going to be a major focus put on the van attack in our city this past week that took the lives of 10 people, injured even more and devasted a city. We are going to worship, we are going to pray, and we are going to talk about some practical things we can do to show the love of God and make a difference.

One thing we will be talking about is a multi-church prayer walk and love outreach that will be happening leading up to the city-wide vigil being held at Mel Lastman Square. It’s a great opportunity to serve in a real and practical way alongside many other believers.

This past Monday, on the day of the attack, I sent the following note to our TCC Family members. While it was written to TCC I felt like I wanted to share it with a broader audience by posting it here on my blog: Continue reading →
