|"The importance of leaving a church well is loving them deeply, hearing God's call and being sure you have spoken all God has given you to say to that body of Christ. The focus and intent of our lives is to live in the holy presence of the Almighty and to make communing with Him our consuming passion." ~ Francis Chan|
“When Jesus was preparing to return to His father, He commissioned his friends to go—to astronomically expand the impact of their lives. He called them to action in Acts 1:8; to a mission that spanned the globe. “You shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.”
Our mission is the same today, though our individual areas of impact vary. So I invite you to ponder your place in the mission: Where is your Jerusalem? Your Judea? Your Samaria? Are we reaching “the ends of the earth?” Are we being witnesses of Jesus in our towns, our nations, and our world?
The world is waiting for the witness and presence of God’s people. Billions of people live below the poverty line, millions of children go hungry around the globe, and preventable disease claims thousands of lives daily. But we each have the opportunity to make a difference. What would happen if we seized the moment?"
Have you thought about this
in these last days?
Not just in other countries,
but where you are? for you?
Are you ready toSTAND
There is another "MAX" to check out... John C. Maxwell. He spoke at Lakewood Church this past Sunday (so you can view this as I have to later in the week anytime in their Message List at Watch Online) and he had spoken on this at LifeChurch Online before (here's a video of the main part, about the miracle of the boy's lunch feeding 5,000 with fish and loaves). Challenging us to trust Jesus with our "lunch"... trust Him... give it to Him... and see the problem become a MIRACLE!
