Some Things We Need To Celebrate
Today I wanted to give you 4 things that we REALLY need to be celebrating.
1. There were 5 more Connect Group Sign-ups this week. I get so excited when I see people doing life together. I know from God’s Word and from my own life experience that real life change happens when we do life together.
2. 10 people signed up to be Connectors (That’s what we call our volunteers). I want to tell you again that if you are a follower of Christ YOU are gifted and empowered to change the world for the glory of God. Don’t waste your gift!
3. We are going to baptize people next week (February 24th)! I LOVE it when we do baptisms and we get to celebrate people who are publicly professing faith in Christ. The baptisms (along with a bunch of food) will be at Splash in the Boro immediately after the service. If you are a believer in Christ and have not been baptized as a believer in Christ your next step IS baptism. Sign up by shooting us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. We had 1 salvation this week. I saved this one until last because I want to emphasize that 1 person went from death to life this week. I think our tendency is to get caught up in how large the number is rather than how large in significance a life altered for eternity is! Let it sink in for a minute…someone’s eternity was altered. Eternity is a long time! We need to CELEBRATE that. The Bible says that Heaven throws a party when one person turns to God! We should too! WOOHOO! I Love It!
Let’s rejoice in all that God is doing! DO NOT let preoccupation with the future rob you of rejoicing in what God is doing today!
I love you guys! I love our church!
Heart and Soul!
