We have an exciting weekend coming up with Helen Kobakian joining the Nourish girls for the Day Retreat and then Richard preaching on Sunday! Let’s be on our game and ready for what God wants to do among us.
It’s been a busy week at Energizer. I know I’ve had a big one. There are loads of fantastic things happening on a number of fronts, as we’ve been getting on with the job of: building lives, building families, building hope, building faith, and building the spiritual climate of our City.
While we’re getting on with it, we can find ourselves spread out and sometimes a little separated and a little vulnerable. Nehemiah was able to see potential danger because the Jews were spread around Jerusalem as they put their energy into restoring the broken wall around Jerusalem.
19 Then I explained to the nobles and officials and all the people, “The work is very spread out, and we are widely separated from each other along the wall. 20 When you hear the blast of the trumpet, rush to wherever it is sounding. Then our God will fight for us!” Nehemiah 4:19-20 (NLT)
The trumpet blast meant that someone needed some help; it was time to come alongside and give support, protection and reestablish security. I love being part of a church that is going somewhere, has a purpose and a mission. That means we will be busy and that’s great and its a lot of fun and is actually quite energizing.
Let’s make sure we listen out for the sound of those who need us to come along side and inversely let’s not be too proud to pick up the trumpet (phone) and call in the support when we need it.
We are in this together! We’re better together and we know God blesses unity. There are exciting days ahead!
I know this sounds repetitive, but really important!!!!! Pre-service prayer and prayer for salvations.
See you in Church!
