Bill Johnson (October-14-2019) Sermon: Jesus Gives Us Beauty for Ashes (Isaiah 61:3). A wonderful, tender teaching from Bill about staying sensitive Holy Spirit’s promptings. He describes a worship service with Heidi Baker where a woman standing nearby was, “just making all kinds of noise. I found it quite annoying because she didn't seem to be singing the same song as the rest of us. The gal would only sing in between the lines and would not sing the words. She had a piercing falsetto soprano voice. I've been around this mountain enough to know it's stupid for me to think critically of other people. I’m going to press in and worship. I didn't have hard feelings. I just wished she would stop. After worship finished Heidi was standing a few feet away. She came over and pointed to this woman. She said, “Isn't that amazing? That woman spent 35 years as a prostitute and now she's free.” Suddenly, what I thought was noise, that I thought was annoying, turned out to be a symphony. Heidi took the time to wash her feet find out why she walks the way she does. Her limp became beauty. It's that heart of tenderness towards God’s presence that makes us more prone to that conclusion than all the others.
