a glimpse towards Sunday 7.29.16
We serve a living Jesus who fills. “And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.” (Ephesians 1:23)
I am full.
Each year, Cumberland blesses my family and me with a summer study break. The purpose is to be filled. I anticipate this great time each year. And when it’s over, I’m full. Perhaps better language is: “Ready to explode!”
Sunday is Firehose Sunday. I’m asking God to help me communicate the filling He’s done inside my head and heart.
Typically, a summer study break takes a look at culture, where CCC and Christ’s Church is, and where, with His grace, we could be. This year’s break was no different.
Would you come Sunday to drink from a firehose. That sounds weird, doesn’t it. Can you actually drink from a firehose? It’s a strong metaphor, but one I’m willing to use because there’s a large piece of my heart that will be laid out on Sunday.
There’s a problem CCC can solve.
There’s a vivid picture to paint.
Our hearts need stirred.
May our moving forward be God-sized and not Alan-ized.
Firehose Sunday. You comin’? If so, bring a friend or two. Let them see Christ’s Church making a difference in our world. Our text will be Jeremiah 29:4-11. Jeremiah led in a culture of chaos.
Think there’s any chaos these days… besides the two political conventions recently endured??
I’m excited to gather and see you on Sunday. Firehose Sunday. 9 & 11 a.m.
