Bill Johnson - Sermon: Homesick for God’s Presence (Hebrews 5:12-14). Great teaching from Bill to help us understand how we were designed by God to experience His love.
Quotes: “I woke up one morning and I felt homesick. I didn't know why. It was the weirdest thing, why am I homesick? My wife's here, I’m at my house – I just felt homesick. I thought back and asked myself, “What am I missing?” Then I remembered, night after night I'd been going to sleep becoming conscious of Him and burning in my affection for Him. But this morning, I woke up and did not think of Him first. I felt homesick and realized two days in a row I did not wake up with Him as the first thing on my mind. I realized a momentum had been created in the previous couple of months to such a degree that not having that one simple little moment where you wake up conscious of God - not having that - I just felt homesick. I realized that's home. He is home.”
