From Now On
Seeing the Sacred in the Secular

This week, we’re inspired by the song, “From Now On,” from the movie, The Greatest Showman.

Have you ever made that kind of statement: “From now on… I’ll start spending my time with my family.” “From now on… I’ll stop losing my temper.” “From now on… I’ll stop drinking or drugging.” “From now on… I’ll start living for God and praying more.” “From now on…” How’s that working out? Do you find that you need help to make such a commitment? Do you see the need for God’s help in order to make real life change?

In today’s sermon, we’re going to look at a story about a man who was the general of the Syrian army, a great man and highly favored by his king. He had everything a man could want, but one thing he lacked… his health. He had leprosy. Yet, he encountered the living God in Israel and made the commitment: “From now on… I will only serve the LORD.”
