Not His Death, But the Resurrection

I’ll be spending this week in Longview, Texas (yippee) at a CIY conference named MOVE.MOVE is a 5-day event designed to amplify the call of Christ on students lives to become Kingdom workers.

Kingdom Worker is a Christian who uses whatever sphere of influence he or she has to proclaim the message of Jesus. Kingdom Workers include school teachers, moms, high school basketball players, bass guitarists, doctors and a countless list of others. Their ministry may look different, but they have each surrendered to Jesus, and are committed to using their gifts, abilities and relationships to advance his Kingdom.

The theme this week is “This Changes Everything” and the students will learn how it’s not the death of Jesus but His resurrection that can make all the difference in their lives.

So as you can probably imagine…it has the potential to be a powerful week not only for the students but also for us adult chaperones.  In fact, I fully expect to encounter God all during this week.

Cocky? No. Confident? Yes.  I am praying. I am worshipping. I am seeking God.  And I’m claiming the promise:

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 ESV

Holy Spirit fall on this place…DM
