Recently I was at the office on the phone with one of the guys on our team. I was in a huge hurry because I needed to leave for an appointment but I couldn’t leave because I had to find something before I left. I was walking around the office, while talking on the phone, looking for my… phone. Have you ever done that? It’s crazy to me how we can miss and not even think about what’s right there.
If you’re like me, it’s easy to walk through the day looking for what God is doing and miss it even though all the while it’s right there. It’s so easy to be distracted by what we want God to do that we miss what He’s actually doing. As I think about the future of C3, I can honestly say I’ve never been more excited. But, I don’t want to get so focused on what I’d like God to do, and what I’m praying He will do, that I miss celebrating what He is doing now and has done.
So, this morning I spent some time thanking God for the 272 people who’ve committed their lives to Christ so far this year at C3. That’s right, 272 people in just 6 months!!! Also, we continue to have record shattering attendance every week. Last Sunday we had a ton more people come to C3 that day than we’ve ever had on the last Sunday of June in our history. It’s just a pattern we’re seeing every week. Why does that matter? Because every number has a name and every name has a story and every story matters to God!
C3, thank you so much for the way to love this city. For the way you invest and invite. For the way you give to this movement. For the way you serve with excellence. While we all are praying for things we’d like God to do in our lives, let’s be sure to celebrate that we are attached to a unique move of God right now! I love you and can’t wait to see you July 9th (remember, no services this weekend). The best is yet to come!
