No Shortcut To The Promise Land: Exodus 13:17

Written by Angelique Watkins

Rev. Dr. Pastor Crosby, Pastor INDEFINITE SERMON TOPIC- "No Shortcut To The Promise Land. Exodus 13:17. Moses was born for a certain reason. We all are born for a certain reason.

First, let me share this: Mary and myself was talking on sunday morning before going to worship services and I was sharing with her about Messianic Jews which are Christians and Arab Christian Ministries. I shared with her thatrepparttar Book of Acts is a great book to read and I shared different scriptures in Acts with her.

On Sunday, September 1, 2002 I was attending worship services with Mary at Rose Hill Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis, Mo. andrepparttar 126962 Pastor is Rev. Dr. Curtis Crosby.

Onrepparttar 126963 Order of Services program what really caught my eye was Pastor Crosby's INDEFINITE SERMON TOPIC- "No Shortcut To The Promise Land" Exodus 13:17

The Sermon text came from Acts 6:1-4.

The pastor told us to look at "brethen" in verse 3.

He did share that Wisdom isrepparttar 126964 fear ofrepparttar 126965 Lord. The church must have strong leaders in order forrepparttar 126966 church to grow. Leadership is not an option but a principle. Inrepparttar 126967 Old Testament we are introduced to strong leaders. Moses was born for a certain reason. We all are born for a certain reason. When Moses came down fromrepparttar 126968 mountain nobody had to ask him where he had been. He talked aboutrepparttar 126969 Kings of Israel. He talked about Joshua being Moses successor who was anointed.

In his sermon he talked about "Joshua", "Levites" and "Ark ofrepparttar 126970 Covenant."

Whenrepparttar 126971 time came for Acknowledgements of Visitors I did stand and I toldrepparttar 126972 church and Pastor I enjoyedrepparttar 126973 sermon. I toldrepparttar 126974 church and Pastor that it was just amazing how he spoke from Acts for I had shared with Mary about studying from Acts before we came to church.

I also shared withrepparttar 126975 Pastor/church that on fridays that I share with others from Acts 3:1-6 using key words: "Peter and John, went up, together, hour of prayer, ask, look on us."

I did share with them that after 9/11 it made me take a good look atrepparttar 126976 times and it was time to get serious. I told them that Peter and John, "went up, together" to my understanding they literally went up becauserepparttar 126977 temple was higher offrepparttar 126978 ground, they were on one accord, "the hour of prayer, ask" they had faith, they asked knowing they would receive, and "look on us" was not a selfish request.
