When Acts started, identity theft started…the devil doesn’t want you to know who you are!
That declaration was part of an amazing night of worship and power as Bobby Conner brought a message of hope, power and redemption to a packed Grace Street. He began with a sermon and changed into a deep conversation showing how through the Word God is calling us to move forward in power through Him!
The message Bobby shared was not the typical sermon. It was a deep study of the Word using dozens of Bible verses and multiple stories of powerful women in the Bible like Ruth and Esther.
One of the biggest lessons in the teaching was how the book of Ruth relates to Jesus and our relationship with Him. Bobby walked through the book and showed the ways that the names of the people involved had a direct connection to their destiny. For example, the two sons of Naomi were named Mahlon and Chilion. Those names mean “sick” and “weakening!”
Ruth means “friend” and she proved to be one to Naomi. She goes to the land of Naomi’s father and finds a redeemer. This redeemer, Boaz, represents the one who can restore all to Ruth and Naomi. The one who can bring salvation and blessing and honor. The same way that Jesus is our redeemer!
Then Bobby explained about the birth of Boaz and Ruth’s baby, Obed. The name Obed means “that who has a servant’s heart.”
The lesson to all of us is that when we get right with God and Jesus enters our life we will have a servant’s heart!
Bobby also shared how God wants all of us to be reflections of Him to the world.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. (John 14:12 ESV)
In addition to the deep lessons, Bobby spoke prophetic words over the congregation and to individual members in attendance. He spoke of God calling men to be preachers, teachers and workers in the field to bring people closer to Him.
