Next Sunday we kick off a 40 Day spiritual journey that will lead up to Easter. You can pick one up at Indian Creek Community Church, Gardner or Olathe campus, on Sunday. Here is the first one related to the power of the Spirit unleashed in us as the people of God.
After this prayer, the meeting place was shook, and they were filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the Word of God of God with power. Acts 4:31
There is something powerful and divine about doing a 40 Day spiritual growth project with your church that super charges the result. At the end of the next 39 days we will have a common language for what we’ve just experienced. We will read the same scriptures, know the same stories, and make similar commitments. Imagine the multiplied power of doing this together!
We live in a very individualized culture where the good of any one individual is often held higher than the good of the community. However God has chosen to work through the church to change the spiritual landscape of families and communities. The work He wants to do is bigger than any one of us. It calls us out of independence into interdependence. What you decide to do with your time, wealth, talents and life affects me and many others. I need you to be all in.
And you need what I bring to the church. We are members of the same body. Every one of us has a part to play. Imagine if on a given day your leg decided not to work—oh, you don’t have to imagine because you’ve had that problem! It’s a pain isn’t it? I’ve been there too!
Let’s decide that we are going to be a part of the next great move of God that brings heaven to earth.
