Can I just say how blown away I am by Jesus? I was reminded last night that we, the church, belong to him. I was reminded that he will provide everything that is needed to accomplish what he wants. I was reminded that he does everything well.
Jarret Lemaster is on vacation this week, enjoying some down-time with his family. With that, we needed to find someone to lead the praise and worship time for our Wednesday night worship gathering. He talked with Melody and Calli and THEY STEPPED UP!!!! And last night they ushered us into the throne room of Jesus, with the rest of the worship team (you guys ROCK!!!), to where they seemed to be leading worship from.
It was such a powerful time. The message was on the Boldness to Come: to God and together. So very often we do not come to God bluntly/boldly/honestly/ because we are too afraid. However, Hebrews 4:14-16 tells us that we are allowed to boldly come before the throne of grace to find help in time of need.
Last night was outstanding! The ministry on Wednesday nights is still growing. The Church that shows up to worship on Wednesday nights is amazing. I can't believe that I get to lead this ministry with the people that I get to partner with. And I am so thankful to be part of it. And the amazing thing: the key ingredient to the worship services on Wednesday night is none other than Jesus. He is the main thing. No matter who is singing/teaching/leading/greeting/praying..., it is always about Jesus getting things done.
To the worshippers of Wednesday night: I love you all. I can't believe that I get to be your pastor. I can't believe what God is already doing through you. And I'm convinced: the best is yet to come. Don't miss next Wednesday night. Finishing up the MOXIE series. Baptism. Commitment to being the Church. It will be epic—it always is epic when it's for Jesus. See you then.
What a ride,
