Stand in the Gap!

This blog was written by Pastor Matt Fry

God wants us to be willing to stand in the gap for those who are hurting, the poor, those in need and for injustice. And that begins when our heart breaks for what God’s heart breaks for!

Ezekiel 22:30, “I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one.”(NLT)

I pray that God will find us faithful to stand in the gap for those that need hope! We can make a difference one life at a time!

At our vision weekend in January I shared that part of our vision for this year is going to be Project 919 as a part of our Dream Center Ministries. Project 919 is a 9 month focus from January to September to bless the 1.9 million people in the 919 area code with the love of Jesus. 9 months, at least 1 project a month, 9 focuses. Then on 9-19, (September 19) we are going to celebrate all that God has done with a C3 Night in downtown Raleigh.

 

Our ministry focus this month is blessing all of the single parents in the 919 area code. So go to Project919.org and get some ideas of ways that you can bless others and share your ideas with us so. After you do a service project just go to the web site and share with us what you did and the number of total projects will be displayed on the web site. Our group project this month is a FREE oil change for all single moms and dads in the 919 on February 9, from 9am – 1pm on our church campus, 8246 Cleveland Rd, Clayton, NC. Spread the word!

Let’s stand in the gap this month for the single parents. Let’s let them know that God loves them and so do we. You never know how a simple act of kindness can make a huge impact on someone’s life.  So are you ready? Ready, set, go!
