A lengthy worship service

Despite what some may think, when the Bible says "those who endure to the end shall be saved", it's not referring to the length of our worship services at Trinity! Our worship service ran a little longer today than normal, about 1 hour 40 minutes. (We usually run from 10:30 till noon.) We heard an exhilarating report from our Romania missions trip team. We started Acts 1 in a new sermon series. And we celebrated the Lord's Table for the second Sunday in a row. Really, it was a great Sunday morning and I sensed the Spirit move in many people's heart today. But I still felt a little badly that the service went so long until I just read that this morning's worship service at First Baptist Church Dallas went for two hours!

This is what the Dallas Morning News says, " Members of the historic First Baptist Church of Dallas elected Robert Jeffress as their new pastor at the conclusion of a rousing two-hour Sunday morning worship service, attended by 3,200." That put things in a little better perspective for me. I wish FBC Dallas all the best with the new pastor. May they bear much fruit for the Kingdom!

John I don't think you should ever feel bad about the service running long. I loved it.
