Someone recently asked me "are you always pumped when Sunday comes around?" The truthful answer is "no not always" 😱 what? Look - sometimes even I don't "feel" like rocking up but I do. And I always will. Not because I'm the Pastor but because I want to be found at my post.
I have a vivid imagination... movies play in my mind. It's hilarious sometimes... but when I think of Sunday the movie that plays in my imagination goes like this - it's the pinnacle of the movie... the battle of all battles in about to take place, the rescue mission is about to happen and I am involved. 👩🏼🎤 I told you I had an imagination... but maybe in the unseen realm this isn't far from the truth. We see welcome signs, worship rehearsal, toilets being cleaned, chairs being set, flyers on seats... but in the unseen realm maybe it's weapons being loaded, army in position, keys to unlocking hearts at the ready.
And so I will always turn up. Wether I feel like it or not. I want to be found at my post!
Our Pastor @brianchouston - he started our church with such passion that there has always been a radical pattern of serving in one service and receiving in another and being part of a small group.
Imagine if we all did this. We would never lack team. We would never lack community. We would never lack resource. We might possibly see God at work through us in radical ways.
It takes extraordinary people to build an extraordinary church. So if you needed this today... I encourage you - be found at your post!!!! It's worth it every single time. 💛💛💛
