Embracing the Power of the Sanctuary Within

In a world often overwhelmed by chaos and noise, finding a place of peace and spiritual refuge is essential. Dr. GreGory's recent sermon, delivered on a beautiful Father's Day, was a profound reminder of the sanctuary that faith can provide.

The Power Within Us

Pastor began by urging the congregation to recognize and embrace the immense power bestowed upon them by God. He passionately declared, "Tell somebody, I got it! I got it! I got it!" It's the same power that allows us to conquer the enemy, overcome sickness, and break free from mental strongholds. The power of God enables us to walk confidently in our daily lives, knowing that nothing can hold us back when we trust in Him

Celebrating Fathers

As the sermon fell on Father's Day, Dr. GreGory took a moment to honor fathers both present and absent. He reminded us of the invaluable role fathers play in our lives, shaping us with their love, guidance, and sacrifices. He praised not only earthly fathers but also our Heavenly Father, whose infinite love is the very breath of our existence. The recognition of a good father's impact served as a reminder of the love and responsibility that comes with being a parent.

Trusting God in the Sanctuary

Central to Dr. GreGory's sermon was the concept of the sanctuary—a spiritual haven where we can find peace, solace, and strength. Referencing Psalm 91, he highlighted the protection and comfort that come from dwelling in God's presence. "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty," he recited, reminding us that true sanctuary is found in trusting God completely. This trust is not passive but active, requiring us to surrender our fears, doubts, and worries to Him.

Pastor also emphasized the importance of not allowing any situation or person to disrupt our inner sanctuary. Life's daily encounters can bring irritation, trauma, and life-changing events, but we must learn to handle these situations while maintaining our peace with God.

The Wheat and the Tare

Another profound aspect of Dr. GreGory's sermon was the lesson of the wheat and the tare, drawn from Matthew 13: 24-30. He spoke about how the wheat and the tare grow together, and in due time, we will reap a harvest if we do not faint. Often, we are tempted to pluck up the tares, the unwanted elements in our lives, but the scripture advises us to let them grow together.

In the early stages, the tares and the wheat are indistinguishable because they are the same size. Plucking the tares too soon risks uprooting the wheat. This analogy reflects our spiritual growth, where we may mistakenly believe that the tares in our lives are developing in character just we are. However, as the wheat matures, it bows down with the weight of its harvest, symbolizing obedience to God—"Not my will, but Thy will be done." In contrast, the tares stand tall and become recognizable.

Pastor illustrated that holding onto this biblical teaching helps us navigate life with the understanding that trouble is temporary. When our harvest comes in, the tares in our lives will be easily identifiable. God will reveal and handle the tares at the appropriate time, and we can look forward to the bountiful harvest promised to those who endure.

Living Out Our Faith

The sermon concluded with a call to action—living out our faith in every aspect of our lives. Dr. GreGory urged the congregation to walk, live, and pray with the power and grace that God provides. He emphasized the importance of putting our faith into action, not just within the walls of the church but in our everyday interactions and decisions. By doing so, we become living testimonies of God's love and power, inspiring others to seek their own sanctuary in Him.
