#‎everypersonhasanameandeverynameisimportant

Posted: September 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

Have you ever thought about how good it feels when someone knows you and calls you by your name? A few days ago I was walking in a store and from a distance I heard a small voice calling, “Pastor Jeff, Pastor Jeff!”. I turned and from the other end of the store here came a little girl running to greet me with arms opened wide. I gave her a big hug! With expectation in her voice she exclaimed, “When are we starting Bible Club?!! “When are we starting Bible Club?!!” It is an amazing feeling to be known and called by your name! One of our core values at LifeSong Church is that “every person has a name and every name is important”! You are not just a number or a soul, you are a unique creation of our awesome God and He knows you by name and calls you by name John 10:3 “He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.” I want to know you and when you walk through the doors of LifeSong Church I want you to hear your name and feel like you are at home. I want to hug your neck(unless you don’t like to be touched) and tell you how much we love you. We are living in a fast paced world that seems to be taking less and less time to really get to know people and love them. We have exchanged real relationships for Facebook likes and retweets. Here is a pretty strong test for you…. If somebody in your household dies who are you going to call to preach their funeral? I know that is a morbid thought and your thinking, Pastor Jeff why did you go there? Here is the point, when it gets right down to it nothing is as important as the relationships you build in your life. I don’t want to just be a preacher you see and listen too. I want to know you and your family and pour my life into yours. You have a name and I believe that name is awesome and important!
