We Really Did “Spring Forward”
Today was the biggest step forward in the life of this church other than the day this mission got started. Over the next 2 months at least 20 new Care Groups will kickoff. All of these groups rallied around common ground and led by God called leaders. These groups will be the roots of our church body and the greatest arms of outreach. These groups will make the difference in us reaching hundreds versus thousands.
I’m sure you’re thinking “that can’t happen in Colleton County.” God’s simple response to the doubters is “Just Wait And See.” You will see people from every walk of life reached. You will see people all over met where they are with the amazing love of Jesus Christ.
These groups will minister to the multitudes that otherwise would never be reached. The lost, lonely, grieving, and often feeling forsaken will find the Care Group that is tailored made to minister to them and through them. As seen today whether a cancer survivor, animal lover, or a person feeling called to carry the gospel clear around the world. God is in the midst of assembling an army of leaders and soldiers to accomplish what will be an absolute God-made journey.
A few years from now you will remember a church that used to be a place of just 250 worshippers. Then, you will reflect with amazement over what God did past this Sunday. Every week from here on out you will observe many new missions and miracles. God is building a massive rescue mission that is serious about Loving, Lifting, & Leading people to Jesus. We will do anything possible short of sin to reach every soul we can. I’m seeing the official liftoff of a vision God gave me over 14 years ago. And, even greater something God is doing while I’m flat on my back. The best truly is yet to come!
“They were continually and faithfully devoting themselves to the instruction of the apostles, and to fellowship, to eating meals together and to prayers. A sense of awe was felt by everyone, and many wonders and signs (attesting miracles) were taking place through the apostles. And all those who had believed [in Jesus as Savior] were together and had all things in common [considering their possessions to belong to the group as a whole]. And they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing the proceeds with all [the other believers], as anyone had need. Day after day they met in the temple [area] continuing with one mind, and breaking bread in various private homes. They were eating their meals together with joy and generous hearts, praising God continually, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were being saved.”
(Acts 2:42-47)(Amplified Bible)
