Message for May 30, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

                ”Sermon of a lifetime.”
    There are many words in the English language and one of those is the word, definite.  The definition of definite is: complete and final, firm, final and complete.  It is not to be challenged or changed.
     We have many parts of speech in our language but we only have one definite article.  That is “The”. It always is used to point attention to one specific thing.  Bringing our information about this to my point this morning let us consider the following.  The word “the” appears in any translation of the Bible, thousands of times.  We cannot look at all of them but there are a few hundred of them that deserve our attention.
     In fifty years of preaching I have never preached a sermon centering around “the”, but I am now by revelation from The Holy Spirit.  There is no way I am able to cover everything about this word.  I will make an effort today to show you how important this word is in understanding things about God and Jesus.
     What is the difference between the next two sentences?  Go stand under a tree.  Go stand under the tree.  “I am the Lord, your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt.  You shall have no other gods before me.” Ex. 20:1-2  “I and my Father are one” Jn. 10:30  The is a common, but very important word in any language.
