The highlight of today was celebrating baptisms at our Nashville and Bellevue campuses – over 55 60 people baptized today!
I love the energy and enthusiasm as the entire congregation worships together in celebration.
This is why we do what we do!
If I Perish, I Perish by Justin Davis
God is sovereign but I have a personal responsibility to pursue God’s plan for me.
We sometimes are victims to the decisions of other people in our life. The decisions of other people can sometimes hijack the “more” God has for you.
Oftentimes we don’t find our calling as much as our calling finds us.
When Esther chose to trust God for “more” she didn’t know how or if God was going to show up. But she chose to trust God anyway.
Three Things to Learn from Esther’s Story:
1) God is always at work despite our circumstances.
2) God’s silence does not equal God’s absence.
There is no mention of God in the book of Esther.
God’s hidden-ness is not his abandonment.
Don’t equate God’s silence with his absence in your life.
3) The irony of living a life of “more” is that it often comes through surrender.
This is your time.
Where in your life do you need to trust God for “more’?
