a glimpse towards Sunday 3.11.16

“Where the rubber meets the road.” Have you heard that quirky phrase before? When you get in your car, pull it out of the garage from where it’s been sitting, and drive to your destination — THAT is where the rubber meets the road. Your tires are giving themselves to the unforgiving asphalt. Because the rubber is meeting, greeting, and heating the road up, your body will be carried to where it needs to be. This is where the rubber meets the road.

Some 50 men attended a 6 a.m. Bible study this morning. This is where the rubber meets the road. They were giving themselves to the power of God’s Word SO THAT their lives, marriages, families, and church can get to where they need to be. This is where the rubber meets the road.

Tonight, approximately 100 couples will gather to garner marital help and hope at our final “Dessert & Coffee.” They will give up a Friday night to ensure their marriages on solid ground. This is where the rubber meets the road.

Back on Sunday, February 21st, Dr. Hong Yang fired us up as a part of our great missions conference. The challenge was to take the risk, step out, and GO locally, globally, hopefully, with great potency, openly, notably, and knowingly into a broken world. (See what I did just then? Can’t you hear the passion of Dr. Hong Yang?)

So many CCC folks stood on that fateful Sunday to GO locally… into LaBelle Elementary School on March 13th for our 26th FAITH IN ACTION SUNDAY. The difference between those who stood up then and show up on Sunday is where the rubber meets the road.



I know the forecast is pointing to rain. Will you serve regardless? With good weather we were expecting some 1,100 servants to show the tangible love of Jesus to this hurting school and her people. Will you roll out of bed and join the masses regardless? Will you NOT believe “they’ve got it covered?” This is where the rubber meets the road.

I’m asking you to give up yourself and ME church to actually BE the Church. We are partnering with History Makers Church (an all-Hispanic church) to pull off a great day of serving, loving, restoration, and Gospel-motivated embracing of messy people exactly because we are redeemed messy people ourselves.

This is where the rubber meets the road.
