As I have spent time contemplating, praying, and studying the scriptures and asking God to give me vision and direction both personally and for our church in 2017, I keep coming back to the phrase, “All In”.
My hope and prayer for us as a church family is that 2017 will be marked by an “all in” mindset and attitude as we follow Jesus together. As we study the scriptures we see that Jesus invites us to “Come, and Follow” (Matthew 4:19, 16:24, 19:28). As we enter 2017, lets go all in. Let’s hold nothing back, but together let us worship Jesus with all our heart, mind, and strength (Luke 10:27).
I would like to personally invite you to join me in a 21 Day Fast. Fasting is a Biblical, spiritual discipline that helps us focus our attention on Jesus, spending focused time in prayer and the study of God’s word, while aligning ourselves with the mission and purposes of our Heavenly Father.
I would also invite you to spend time praying for our community and our church during this 21 Day Fast. Join me in praying for God’s favor, and an outpouring of the Spirit that would result in lives being changed by Jesus.
Let’s Go All In!
