Sister Kathryn's welcome highlighted the most practical way to follow Jesus by standing on His promises and then allowing these promises to begin to stand on us, which then enable us to enter into God's grief. Pastor Ray used to story of the birth of Samuel to detail the process of how God uses grief in our lives, as a gateway for Him to share his grief with us. As God was grieved over the Eli church, He is greatly grieved over the modern American Eli Church and the call is for us to enter His grief. As we do that, the call, just like Hannah, is to enter into a covenant with God to give Him the very thing we're crying out for, so that He can began in earnest to share his grief with us for the wickedness in America.
