Just a few thoughts to pass along to you today. First of all…How AWESOME was Sunday?! I’m so thankful for the way God used Joey to bring clarity to the issue of bitterness! We also don’t want to stop at Sunday morning if some follow-up conversations are needed. If we can help you take your next step in breaking out of the personal prison of bitterness please let us know by contacting the church! Also, we will be putting up Joey’s notes on the website as well as our usual audio and study questions.
Second…It’s time to G.A.T.A!! That means “Get After Them Aggressively” (Get your minds out of the gutter! ) The next four weeks we are going to be exploring Acts 8 and how we are called, as the Church, to aggressively pursue those far from God! I am serious when I say that I have never been this excited about a series in the history of our Church! (I know that’s only 2 1/2 years but it’s still true!) Invite someone who doesn’t go to church!
Don’t forget to sign up for the October 1st (That’s a Saturday) outreach. IT IS GOING TO BE INCREDIBLE! We will be doing anything and everything we can in the Statesboro-Bulloch County area to be a tangible expression of the love of Jesus! This is our opportunity to “Get After Them Aggressively” by meeting some real, felt needs in the community!
Finally, I am thankful for all that God did through the Jailbreak series as we looked at mediocrity, fear and insecurity, materialism, condemnation, and bitterness! God’s desire is that we would live free of bondage to anything that keeps us from fully shining His glory to a dark world! We are all on a journey together…none of us have arrived! WE CAN live the life He died for us to live as we walk empowered by the Holy Spirit, driven by a desperation for more of Jesus, and united by a sincere love for one another!
Have a GREAT week!
