Spilling Over

SCRIPTURE

Now that you have welcomed the Anointed One, Jesus the Lord, into your lives, continue to journey with Him and allow Him to shape your lives. Let your roots grow down deeply in Him, and let Him build you up on a firm foundation. Be strong in the faith, just as you were taught, and always spill over with thankfulness.

~Colossians 2:6-7, THE VOICE

QUOTE

Enthusiasm is as good a thing in the Church as fire is in a cook stove.

~Billy Sunday

my two cents worth.

I got a new translation of N.T. a couple of weeks back and I absolutely love it. It is called THE VOICE and it reminds me of the Amplified Bible because you have more words to read rather than less. I was reading in Colossians 2 yesterday when the two verses above caught my attention. I am excited about a couple of things now. I am so hyped up that I cannot settle down to do my quiet time. Tonight we have an opportunity to do something that we’ve never done before: even with two teams dropping out, we still have 35 and the average route has 40 stops. But to be on the conservative side, let’s say 35 teams make 30 visits: if my math is correct, that is over 1,000 visits. Let me blow your mind, there are 40 routes and 1869 stops. We have a shot at 1,000 but I want all 1869. This means the LORD must convict 15 more team leaders between now and 6:30 tonight. The Youth and Women responded well but men I am challenging you to step up to the plate. Don’t use work as an excuse: we need you desperately. We have 5-6 leaders in Guatemala: step up and take there place. Let’s at least get 40 teams on the road but we need 50 to pull this off. Two routes have 80 or more stops and four have over 60. We need two teams for these big routes. This is a God thing folks, there is no way Jack Bailey can pull this off. We are going to eat pizza at 6:00, have a short briefing and then hit the roads by 6:30. We are going to visit for one hour and then meet back at the sanctuary for real church. I’m telling you in advance, if you lay out, you are going to miss a blessing.

You folks in Guatemala need to pray. Pray for the LORD of the harvest to call someone to take your place. PTL, got a new team before I completed the blog. We are back up to 36 but keep praying for 50. Nothing is impossible with God. Our gift is a $1 bottle of gain dish detergent that you can get at Fred’s, Dollar General or Walmart. We need more but we need them ASAP. Pray for me to settle down a little or I’m going to have a heart attack before Saturday. We need help tonight, Thursday and Friday…don’t plan anything that conflicts with the BLOCK PARTY.
