I’ve been wrestling with some sermon prep for this Sunday @ Belpre…and the phrase ‘lift up the name of Christ’ keeps popping into my head.  What an amazing responsibility we have to constantly lift up the name of Christ in our places of worship, in our places of employment, and in our relationships.  When we have seen the power of Christ in our lives, when we have rested in His presence, when we have gazed His salvation…our response should be that we should lift up his name in all places in our lives.  So, what does that look like?

So, as I’m preparing…what is it that keeps us from lifting up the name of Christ?

And, p.s., I just found out that I’m preaching July 19th and 26th as well.  Ideas?
