We’ve kicked off this new year with a new series called “MORE” and more is exactly what we’re experiencing at Cross Point.
More than we could ever hope or imagine.
We had another record-setting Sunday yesterday and we launched our Downtown Campus. I’ve been reflecting the past couple of weeks on all that God has allowed us to be a part of in just 8 years. I’m struck by the responsibility of our influence and I’m trying to wrap my head around how to lead our team to steward this season faithfully.
The Downtown Campus was simply amazing last night! Nearly 300 college students with “arms high and heart abandoned” in worship. Huge thanks to the dozens of volunteers who spent the day preparing the campus, our entire Cross Point staff who committed so much to make the launch possible, and Jesse Santoyo, our Campus Director, who jumped in and made this happen in just a few short weeks. Remarkable!
And if that wasn’t enough, Pete’s message was fabulous too. Here are my notes:
More by Pete Wilson
We have a desire for more significance. We know we’re created for something more, but what does that look like?
We don’t like ambiguity. We don’t like the unknown. We don’t want God to tell us to “go” without telling us all the details. We don’t like it when God tells us “wait and see.”
We operate from this equation: God calls. We listen. We obey. God will bless.
We like to create equations for God, but one of the central themes of the Bible is that God says “you can’t predict me.”
Everyone’s journey of faith is different.
God cares more about who we’re becoming rather than where we’re going.
God loves you enough to strip you of anything that keeps you from Him.
Do you have a God-given dream that is still unfulfilled?
God says “I Will”. If you are willing to trust God, there is nothing of eternal value that is ever at risk in your life.
Will you trust God with all the details of your plans and dreams? Will you trust Him with the unknown? Will you trust Him with your future?
To live a life of MORE will require us to trust God with our futures.
Where do you need to trust God MORE?
