This weekend was awesome. It was our first Easter weekend living back in Colorado after almost twelve years. It was also the first time that we were able to celebrate easter with some of the people that make up Elevation Christian Church. But even that was not the best thing about the weekend. It was being able to give two young men that gave their lives to Jesus a couple of weeks ago. They both were so excited about the books that they were giving especially as we sat in the service together at Southeast Christian Church they were able to read along with everyone else. But it would not have happened if it were not because of the people that have been giving to the work of this church start. As I have been taking time each day to read through God’s word it always gets me excited about what we are doing here in Aurora.
Hebrews 11:1 (NLT) What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.
This is a verse that has been giving me more and more courage everyday. I know that the beginning point of faith is believing in God’s character, he is who he he says. Next that the end point is believing God’s promises even though we don’t see the promises come true right in front of us, we are demonstrating true faith. I gain courage from this verse because I believe that we will see a group of people that are not just talking about being a followers of Jesus but living that life. We will be the church that is on the move not waiting a church waiting to see what happens next. That we will be a group of people that are reaching people that are far from Jesus. This is what I see and this is what I believe God is going to do in the city, this state, and where ever we are able to go in His name.
