This weekend, we continued a new series, Stand in the Gap! I had the honor of speaking on walking in other people’s shoes. Before we can stand in the gap for other people, we have to be willing to step in their shoes!
If you missed this weekend’s services, I encourage you to watch it or listen to it here. Also,if you were not at C3 this weekend, or if you would like to give your tithe or offering, you can give online by clicking here.
1 Corinthians 9:19 “Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible.”
1 Corinthians 9:20-22 “To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law, so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law, so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.”
Like Paul, we have to be willing to step in other shoes, that are unlike ours, so that we might save some!
That is what Project 919 is all about so we can save as many people as possible! Not so we can feel good about ourselves.
On Saturday, we stepped into the shoes of single moms and dads in our community so that we might save some! We changed the oil on 118 cars for FREE so that they would know that God loves them and we, as a church, love them to! (Check my blog tomorrow for more information on Saturday’s oil change outreach and upcoming 919 projects!)
This weekend I interviewed three of my friends who are also staff members to hear their stories of how someone stepped into their shoes during a dark time in their life and the role the church played in their restoration! To hear their stories, watch this weekend’s message here.
Psalm 103:1-5 “Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
