This year our theme is “ Do It Different” so we can make difference.
When Nehemiah arrived in Jerusalem, the city was broken and defenseless. It had no influence or impact on the surrounding region. As work commenced on the walls, people started to take notice. The first responses from the surrounding people were cynical, mocking and critical. Basically Jerusalem had become a bit of a joke.
As the work progressed the mood changed and Jerusalem began to be taken more seriously, to the point where when:
all their enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God.
(Nehemiah 6: 16 NIV)
To make a difference, God’s work in our lives needs to be evident and undeniable in our lives. Let’s not be discouraged about our imperfections and brokenness, but rather see it as an opportunity for God’s work to be seen and for our enemies to become disheartened.
Let’s engage “The God Factor” and we will continue to do it different and make a difference!
Sunday is shaping up to be very exciting with guest speaker Rudy from Planetshakers, baptisms, youth returning form camp and some parents of youth potentially in Church.
Lets come filled with faith and engage in pre-service prayer! We’re praying for salvations and new people to be connected.
See you in Church
