I was preparing a meeting lead for a meeting coming up soon, and as I was doing it, realised that I was working from the bottom up. I’m not sure if I’ve ever done it like that before, but if I have, I haven’t noticed.
Literally, I had written in a song for during the alter-call/response time and then worked up the meeting lead from there!
It made me think about the fact that the call to salvation or holiness REALLY IS the climax of a Salvation Army meeting.
So much so, that by default my focus was working backwards from there!
Praise God for the climax!
(NB: I’m making no reference to tattoos or piercing, that picture was simply 3rd on the list when I googled “Mercy Seat”. Although I have known people to get tattoos as sermon illustrations…)
