I know when I have been to church, and today I was AT church!
Had a good day. Music was good. Attendance was high. Preached a message on the resurrection (what else?) and how important it is to believe in the “risen” Christ.
Quote of the day: You are not an atheist. You are simply a person who God has not revealed Himself to yet.
Another quote: Open your mind to the possibility of God.
I gave a three-part invitation today (1) for the believer (2) for the agnostic (3) and for those ready to receive Christ, using Romans 10:9-10.
Several people committed to Christ today. Amazing.
Evangelism is not an option. It is a command.
Attendance was 737 – (459 in the first service & 278 in the second service) we were packed.
The ushers had to bring out extra chairs two separate times.
This was one of the most relaxed Easter Sunday’s that I’ve experienced in many years, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
In the past we would have a three-day event; Good Friday service, Saturday Easter Egg Hunt, and a variety of special programming on Sunday morning. Plus, we usually conduct a large mail-out to the community the week before. This year we didn’t do any of that and just let church happen… and still we had a packed house.
I think it’s important that church be fun and have the right atmosphere. You can kill a good Bible-believing church with the wrong atmosphere.
Renae and I took a bike ride earlier this week. It was good to get out of the office with some daylight left.
Hey, dear husband:
This was definitely not a flattering picture of your wife . . . but hey! the trail looked GREAT!
Enjoyed the bike ride w/you :)
