Yesterday we gathered for our Transformation Vision Sunday. I really sense the Holy Spirit working in the room. We worshipped… we recognized the new members… we saw the video… we heard the challenge… we took communion… we gave our pledges… we prayed… we celebrated.
It is amazing to see that God called a rag-tag group of people back in 1996 to start a church with a vision for transformation – not only seeing lives being transformed, but the nations being transformed with the Gospel message. And the journey continues.
I could not help but to be so thankful as I saw so many of our church members come forward to place their pledge cards on the altar. I realized that even though we did not have much, we were all making a proclamation of faith – we believe that it is God’s vision, God’s timing and God’s faithfulness that will move us forward. It is true that “the righteous will live by his faith” (Hab 2:4)
I am reminded of what King David said after they gave to the building of the temple – “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand” (1 Chr 29:14).
