So I thought, how about a sermon on "Stupid Things Christians Say."
Then I thought...wow, but there is so much material!
Then I limited it to three commonly used phrases.
The first two were, "Lord, we just pray..." and "Lord, please be with..." If you don't "get" why those are rather silly phrases, we'll talk about that later.
The third was, "I was 16 when I found Jesus..."
Guess what? He wasn't lost...we were!
Thought of that as I read this:
"A true Christian is not a sheep who has gone looking for the Good Shepherd and found a man who seems to fit the bill, but someone who has been looked for and found by God."
