On March 18th, I was privileged to preach at ICA here in Phnom Penh. You can listen to the message here, or via our podcast on iTunes.
We talked about three things that block peace and a few things that help bring peace.
I also introduced a short song called Be Still, Be Quiet, based on Psalm 131. It’s at the end of the message around the 25 minute mark.
all for ONE,
“Psalm 131 is one of the shortest Psalms to read, but one of the longest to learn.” — Charles Spurgeon
My heart is not proud, Lord,
my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
or things too wonderful for me.
But I have calmed and quieted myself,
I am like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child I am content.
Israel, put your hope in the Lord
both now and forevermore.
Last Sunday I had the privilege of preaching at the ICF here in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

We looked at how Jesus allowed his emotions to be influenced (by a woman!), we talked about platitudes and why to NEVER use them, and we considered the different ways Jesus empathized with Mary and Martha.
He mirrored each woman and responded very uniquely, in fact.
We also talked about the one thing we must remember for this story to make sense: I am NOT the center of Christ’s universe. The Father is. Christ’s love for me is secondary and derivative. His primary goal is NOT to relieve my suffering or heal my disease.
So, although he loves, he sometimes “stays.”
— Jonathan T.
