Note taking during preachings–some say ’tis an arduous task. But now that I’ve finished filling up one notebook with sermon notes I’ve taken, I see the the blessing of looking back through its pages and being reminded of things that challenged and prompted me continue to live as Christ commanded. As you read through some of these take-aways that I’ve listed here, my prayer is that it bless and encourage your life to serve Him more.
