News broke yesterday of another group of Christians taken hostage by ISIS. It’s estimated that there are as many as a hundred hostages, and children are among them. Let’s join together and pray for a miraculous deliverance for these, wisdom for all the governing authorities involved in discerning a response to ISIS, and, while we’re at it, even for the spiritual conversion of those who are a part of ISIS. Sound crazy? Perhaps. But then again, if you believe what you read in Scripture . . . .
This past weekend, those of you at the Farmers Branch Campus got to hear the incredible testimony of Jason Bernick, our new Spiritual Formation Minister. In my opinion, there are no words to convey the power of his story. You simply have to hear it if you haven’t yet. This coming weekend, Jason will be sharing the same testimony at the Vista Ridge Campus. Many of you have asked when this will be online. Due to the sensitive nature of some of his content, we are not posting it online at this time. If you are a part of the Vista Ridge Campus or missed it last weekend at the Farmers Branch Campus, don’t miss Jason at the VR Campus this coming weekend. And by all means, this would be a golden opportunity for someone you know to hear the gospel. Those at our FB Campus will dive into the next installment of our “In Christ” series out of Ephesians 1:11-12.
As I write this, snow is falling and the promise of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah is swirling around in my mind. “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” (Isaiah 1:18)
Grace and Peace,
See You This Weekend!
