RE Verse reading–Isaiah 5:1-13, 18-23 (day five) “I will sing . . . a song about HIS vineyard” (vs 1) Many of you have heard by now that Stephen Carrell is resigning from First Baptist Church to take a similar position with a church in Dallas. (Park Cities Baptist) When I heard this news on Tuesday, my emotions were “all over the map”. Disappointed. Afraid. Angry. Hopeful. Calm. Deciding which feeling to follow was confusing. I found solid footing late the next day (it was a process of prayer) when I began to ask this question, “What does God deserve in this moment?” Not “what do I want?” (or anyone else for that matter) What do I owe Him? What attitude of heart will please Him and proclaim His Kingdom? It is an Isaiah question. We are God’s vineyard. He expects and deserves to receive certain things from us. Right feelings and right fruit. I am praying for you today. See you Sunday.
