Thursday night’s Evening Service at the Ready Now Expo was a special one for those at Morningside. Our very own Pastor Zachary Drew was the teacher and we were his eager students. This is the first time that Pastor Drew has led one of our expo evening services since being ordained a few months ago. He has been teaching Revelation now for 3 years. There is something about Zach that is contagious; He LOVES God’s Word. He not only loves it but lives in every word, every verse and every chapter. He encourages old and young to open their Bible and seek what God is telling them, reminding all that it is written from the most amazing love there can be.
“I want people to get into the Word! There are hidden treasures in every chapter; mysteries we have to uncover! Don’t just believe what someone tells you is true. Something can sound spiritual and of God but if it isn’t in his Word don’t believe it! Don’t even believe what I tell you! Fall in love with the Word of God and listen to Him!”
Pastor Zach shared many amazing insights from the Bible with us, warning that we cannot believe some of the half truths that are out there and are spoken all the time.
“We have all been told, ‘God won’t give us more than we can handle.’ In 1 Corinthians 10:13 God says ‘No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.’ God is saying that you will go through things. Of course we will go through things that will be more than we can bear. If we didn’t, why would we need God? He is saying I will help you get through it, whatever it is. We can get through it together.”
The evening service continued with many teachings on faith and the book of Revelation and concluded with those in the audience filled with the knowledge that only God’s Word can provide. We all look forward to the future and many more lessons, insights and inspiration from Pastor Zachary Drew!
