Message Rendezvous with God Rev. John Song
Part 4) “Sign of the Cross 4.0”
On this Fifth Sunday of Lent, we continue our Lenten Sermon Series: “Rendezvous with God” with Part 4) “Sign of the Cross 4.0”. We will continue to explore deeper and further in practicing the sign of the cross to get the full benefit of using it as our daily spiritual practice. It is a powerful spiritual tool to cultivate embodied prayer life that will have an indelible effect in cultivating intimate life with God.
1 Corinthians 13:12 (The Message)
“We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist.
But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright!
We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us,
knowing him directly just as he knows us!
