Yesterday I preached a message at my home church entitled Stirred Up. In it, I take a look at the man who was ill for 38 years whom Jesus found by the Pool of Bethesda in John 5:1-10. I applied the lessons from that story to your search for and fulfillment of purpose and it seemed to go well. I got good feedback, but of course you only hear from those who enjoyed it. Those who didn't usually sneak out the back or side door!
At any rate, I am attaching my message slides for you to read. Also, the message is available on my church's website via podcast if you would like to hear it.
