We are continuing a series Sunday that we are calling “Held Together.” Each of the messages in this series comes from the book of Colossians. Sunday, we are considering Colossians 3:1-4. This is a challenging set of verses, but at the same time a comforting reminder of the power that we have in Christ.
3151! How are you doing? We have let the 3 stand for praying for three unbelievers. The first 1 stands for learning 1 Gospel presentation. We have been helping you to achieve this goal on Sunday nights and will continue to do that this coming Sunday night. The 5 stands for inviting 5 friends to church. We readily admit that this is a difficult challenge. The last 1 stands for sharing your faith with at least one person. Don’t grow discouraged. Challenges should inspire and not discourage. Challenges should cause us to reach higher than we have maybe ever reached. If you are having trouble completing your challenge, don’t despair. Don’t be embarrassed. Don’t feel unworthy. Choose 1 of these 4 numbers and give it your all next week. We can all pray for 3 people. If that’s all you can do successfully, God will honor that more than you might ever know. And, just think of the difference these prayers might make in people coming to their own faith in Christ.
Finally, remember to keep praying for our church members on mission this week in Haiti.
I love you church! I look forward to seeing you Sunday! Make a great effort to be in your Sunday School class and worship on Sunday.
