The next four weeks are critical for Centerpointe Church as we focus our attention on our mission: "Live Dead." September is our missions month.
I love missions. I love hearing about what God is doing around the world through the missionaries we support. I love giving money to missions projects and missionary budgets on a regular basis and challenging others to do the same. I love going on mission trips to build, teach and pray.
Our theme this year, “Live Dead” will ask some serious questions of us, like, what if we lived our lives completely surrendered to Jesus? How would that change us? How would we respond to the world around us?
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives.” (John 12:24 NLT-SE)
I challenge Centerpointe Church to be part of each service over the next four weeks and ask, what is God saying to us about our lives, our thinking, our communities and our resources? Will we die to ourselves and allow Jesus to live within us and through us?
I believe God is going to do something great as we surrender our lives to Him.
