For the last four weeks our Pastor has been teaching on the topic ‘the time is now.’
It has been good, and challenging and eye opening and exciting all in one journey as a church.
We have made plans to purchase a piece of real estate for our new building and in order to do that each family had to come to a place of giving, from their hearts.
The goal was to raise a million for a down payment for the first half of the ‘purchase’.
We waited and prayed and listened and the grand total was announced last week.
We raised over a million, over the goal and over the plan that our Pastor laid out.
It was exciting. It was the generosity of the people. Sharing out of their ‘abundance and finding clever ways to resource the ‘goal’ whether that be selling a boat, selling a car, cashing in on funds of some sort. Creative giving for we know a generous heart is richly blessed.
Pastor shared one family gave their entire life savings and within days of giving it was returned to them in another way. Faith can move mountains. Faith can also show the power of the Almighty God.
Pastor said, let your conversation be gracious and attractive watching how you live.
Choosing to have a generosity of heart, everyone contributes to the sharing of the word so others who are searching can hear it and be saved by that experience.
The new facility will be not only for us as a church but it will be also a community place.
When serving others within that space it is not our job to convince others they are lost it is the Holy Spirit’s job to show them. We just do the ‘serving’ the rest will happen in the right timeframe.
Jesus reached out to others and rescued them. He also asked them, “do you want to be well?”
Part of that expectation was action on their part, supernatural healing with the expectation to pick up your mat and get walking.
Pastor said, let your conversation be gracious. The Holy Spirit will do the rest.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 The Message (MSG)
{3-4 If our Message is obscure to anyone, it’s not because we’re holding back in any way.
No, it’s because these other people are looking or going the wrong way and refuse to give it serious attention. All they have eyes for is the fashionable god of darkness.
They think he can give them what they want, and that they won’t have to bother believing a Truth they can’t see. They’re stone-blind to the dayspring brightness of the Message that shines with Christ, who gives us the best picture of God we’ll ever get.} I believe this new facility will be one of blessing for us as a church and also a blessing for the community who is watching us. The time is now for us to show Jesus to others.
