Making Disciples 2012

Standard

Hi!

This past Sunday we celebrated the confirmation of Blake Crim, Emily Godwin and Elizabeth Harrison.  Part of their confirmation was to plan the SNC service and be a part of it. 

Emily and Elizabeth sang with the band and they did an awesome job of stepping out in faith!  God rejoiced at their sweet voices singing praises to Him!  It is part of what we are called to do- to worship our Father in Heaven!   Great job girls!

Doing the motions for the rest of us!  In order to see God we also have to show God to people!   We don’t just go through the motions-we live them out day by day in our words, deeds and actions.

The reading of John Wesley’s rules…Elizabeth had us stand as she read them.  I like that!

Serving Lydia…look at Lydia’s face-she is beaming with joy as Emily and Elizabeth lean down to meet Lydia where she is at…this is how we serve the world- by leaning in and meeting people where THEY are.  This moment spoke to my spirit and filled me with joy…

And then this one…our newest Disciples serving their leaders and Elizabeth serving her father.  What a testimony!

And then there is Casey…she waited until the end and once again, the girls leaned in to meet her where she was at-she accepted the bread but was not quite ready for the juice…and that’s okay.  All things in God’s time.  God knows Casey’s heart as He hears her singing “Jesus Loves Me” from her soul…she knows…

Matthew 28:18-20  says :  “ 18 When Jesus came near, he spoke to them. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations: Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach them to do everything I have commanded you.”

Thank you church!  Thank you Lord!
