In contrast, have you ever stopped to think about how many times Jesus’s actions spoke, I Will for you? Do you say I Will back to God and the church as a result?
This Lent, the season of 40 days, excluding Sundays, leading up to Easter, we will be looking at I Will. Specifically, I will worship, I will grow, I will serve, I will reach, I will give, and I will follow!. These are who we are. They are our core values, and as we look at preparing our hearts for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus it is important that our lives to see if they reflect the amazing love of God.
It is very common during the season of Lent (beginning on Ash Wednesday, March 6, and concluding on Holy Thursday, April 18) that people give something up. Sometimes it is as simple (Ha, simple) as giving up soda or caffeine. However, this year we are asking you to take something on: prayer. Prayer is our shield, our line of hope. Prayer helps us to keep what is critical and important as our focus and priority. Prayer is our chance to talk to God and to listen. This is why we will have a devotional book, times to pray at the new property and I Will Praise (music and prayer on Thursday evenings at 6:00 p.m.).
If this was not enough for the Lenten season, I Will is also our capital campaign for our future building. We have one shot! That might sound harsh or overwhelming, but this is what we have, one shot. More people will come to Euless First when we open our new building than we have ever had before. We have one chance to make sure we welcome people and provide a place where they too can participate in our ministry.
Step up and say I Will with us this Lent.
