BE...the Church

Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

If you were not here for Summer Youth Series July 4, I encourage you to go back and watch it online via Facebook or in our LiveStream archives. Brandon Edwards, the Vice President of Story at Aggos, spoke about how we need to BE...the Church. In order to do that the way God intends for us to as followers of Christ we cannot fear. He encouraged us to ask what if...and have the faith to move forward not be comfortable in our fear to stay where it is “safe & easy”.

Brandon referenced Acts 1 as one of his favorite chapters, and it is mine as well. The apostles watched Jesus, who had just risen from the dead 40 days earlier, ascend into heaven and had that moment where they must have realized/thought...wait, we’re it? We are the plan? God is going to save humankind through His son...and it’s up to us to tell everyone the story.

2000 years later...have you had that moment where you realize...you are the plan...it’s up to you to tell the story. God’s plan does not solely consist of you living a “good” life in secret, crossing t’s & dotting i’s, marking off your attendance sheet, reading your bible, & praying daily. Where would we be if that was the response of the apostles? God’s plan is for you to BE...the Church!

Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
