Sunday Morning 4/4/10

Here is the sermon from Sunday morning.  We had a great service and a wonderful time praising the Lord.  I wish I could include the singing part of the service from mornings like this one because everyone sounded so great singing Sunday.  It really blessed my heart to be in the house of the Lord among our family here.  Here is the audio from the sermon and the notes are below as well.  May God richly bless you through His Word.
