Set that alarm clock a bit earlier for Sunday. Get up, throw yourself in the shower, toss on your most comfortable workout clothes, and get your beloved self over to Resurrection at 9 A.M. starting on Sunday, February 16, for a new, thrilling, challenging group with Pastor George: Becoming Who I Was Made To Be!
There will be coffee, tea and juice to awaken your neurons, snacks to feed your body, and content that will make your brain and heart feel like they've just run a triathlon.
Here's what Paul says in Philippians 3 (The Message):
I didn't want some petty, inferior brand of righteousness that comes from keeping a list of rules when I could get the robust kind that comes from trusting Christ - God's righteousness. I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally, experience his resurrection power, be a partner in his suffering, and go all the way with him to death itself. If there was any way to get in on the resurrection from the dead, I wanted to do it.
I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward - to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.
So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us.
So that's the goal - to discover what exactly God has for us, each of us, personally, individually: your job, your goal, your calling - yours specifically and exactly - in His kingdom.
You'll be pressed, stretched, challenged, encouraged, gobsmacked, driven and filled by the Holy Spirit. Come with heart and brain ready.
It will be great, because you will be there. And so will He!
