An Ordinary Day

Welcome back!

The worship this week consisted of singing:

Greater Than Your Love

Our God” by Chris Tomlin

“With You”

“I Love You Lord”

Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury

After that, University City campus pastor Larry Brey spoke.  My notes read:

  • Acts 3:1-7
  • If you are ordinary, you are positioned to be mightily used by an extraordinary God.
  • Most stories in Scriptures are of ordinary people trusting an extraordinary God.
  • Success is what you build for yourself; significance is what you give away for God.  You can be extremely successful in life and not have significance, because your significance is tied to your sacrifice.
  • Faith is not just believing for it, it’s sacrificing towards it.
  • There is a language and a lifestyle to faith.  You must talk it and walk it.
  • If it’s about a bunch of people and not a person then it’s not personal.
  • Shallow values will lead to empty victories.
  • My responsibility is to keep sacrificing, God’s is to keep saving.
  • Faith doesn’t mean you don’t doubt, it just means there’s a game changer you go back to.

I don’t have a whole lot of notes this week because a lot of the message was personal testimonies, but it was really good–both my mom and I could not stop crying.  You can watch the message here:



love first, love well, love anyway-4
