I hope that you joined us this weekend at C3! We had three powerful services and saw God move as we asked Him to do a renewing of our minds in 2009. If you missed Matt's sermon, check it out on the Live Feed.
We are one week into our fasting and praying, and I am praying and believing that God is giving you clear thinking; that you are digging deeper into His word, and that your passion for Him is growing daily. One thing that Matt said in his sermon this week was that it is not just about what you are not putting in your body and in your mind, but even more important is what you are replacing those things with. What are you putting in place of the food or the TV or whatever it is your fasting? My prayer is that you are replacing those things with more of Jesus and that He is filling you in a way that only He can.
