When you come to church on Sunday morning, what will you be anticipating? A great worship set? An awesome sermon? A quick service so you can get to Easter lunch? I hope you’ll anticipate a lot more than that. I hope you’ll anticipate tons of lives being changed for eternity!
This entire week at the office has been geared toward Easter Sunday – putting together the worship experience, an Easter Bunny Photo Outreach Event, and preparing for what will be a record number of people at OneLife! Also, the office has been buzzing with mid-week volunteers who are preparing extra handouts, stuffing tons of first-time-guest tubes, prepping Kidz curriculum and working on the production equipment in anticipation of ONE thing:all the people who will accept Christ on Easter and in the weeks to follow! I can’t wait to look back in a few weeks and see what God did over this coming weekend!
Every time we celebrate a life change story or a milestone for our church, I celebrate knowing that God has only given us a taste of what is to come. The “good ole days” for the church always lie ahead, never behind, because God is always able to do way more than we can think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20)!
I encourage you to show up Sunday anticipating a fresh movement of God in our church and in the lives of countless others. Spend the days leading up to Easter praying for the people that you’re inviting and expect God to write a brand new life change chapter to their story.
Hundreds of names were written down of the people we will be BEGGING God to bring to Christ this Easter and beyond! Let’s anticipate their lives being changed!
