Today reminded me of 2 things: 1-why I love Rock Bridge and 2-why I love and am so passionate about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We launched Rock Bridge Ringgold today. We will launch TWO SERVICES next week in Ringgold. What happened? People came–lots of them. But even more our Rock Bridgers did the right things, things God promises to honor in His way, in His time, and for His glory. Rock Bridgers prayed, invited, served, and executed with excellence. This is why I love THIS church. People are committed to the mission God has given us.
But this is what the gospel creates. An army of passionate, sold-out warriors for Christ who believe the gates of Hell will never prevail over God’s church. The gospel inspires sacrifice; the gospel creates people who consistently put others ahead of themselves; the gospel creates people free to love; the gospel frees us from bondage to sin; the gospel removes our shame and guilt; the gospel creates people who are committed to God’s glory; the gospel creates the church!
Rock Bridgers, throughout this series “MADE IN CHRIST” let’s refresh ourselves with the Gospel – let’s worship the God who saved and satisfies us; let’s invite hurting, broken, lost, confused, doubting people to a church service in one of the 4 counties we serve; let’s pray for a fresh move of the gospel’s power; and above all, let’s be committed to God’s glory more than anything else.
A Rundown summary:
- Don’t forget about the “Made In Christ” Bible reading plan.
- Who are you praying comes to have “life in Christ” in 2013?
- Spread the word that Rock Bridge Ringgold is now at TWO services starting next Sunday (1/20)–9:30 & 11:00 am.
