Love Loud Day 13 – “Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. 42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” Acts 2:41-47
Acts is the story of the first church, and Luke records a day when 3,000 were baptized and “added to their number.” God cares about numbers, because every number represents a name, a life, someone Jesus died for. At C3, we’ve shared the amazing growth we’ve experienced in the last 2 years, and He “continues to add to our number those being saved”.
This is the bottom line…C3 exists to continue what Jesus started 2,000 years ago, and we’re just getting started! God celebrates growth, and we should too! There is a party in heaven every time someone puts their faith in Christ. And through LOVE LOUD, we’re trusting Jesus to keep adding “more to our number,” and we’ll keep celebrating!
Are there things you celebrate more than changed lives?
