“All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth will serve you; they will be accepted as offerings on my altar, and I will adorn my glorious temple.”
Along these 21 days of prayer and fasting as a church, we have journeyed through Isaiah 60 and seen the urgency in calling Gods people to once again ARISE and SHINE. This is the cry of God’s heart, that the light of the gospel would again sweep the streets of Montreal, through the province of Quebec and into our nation of Canada. The most exciting part is that we get to actively participate in this reawakening!
We all have something unique and special to bring into the body of Christ, to build the church with exactly who God has created us to be by braving the sometimes inconvenient and occasionally uncomfortable “YES”. We step into the uncharted waters of “YES God use me”, because we know that on the other end of that “yes” there are lives changed and as we serve every single Sunday we are reminded of just that.
Isaiah 60:7 speaks exactly into what our “yes” on a Sunday is all about. Just as the Kedar’s flocks we GATHER as fellow believers in Christ, and just as the rams of Nebaioth we SERVE with our unique gifts and talents, and as we gather and we serve we will see more people ACCEPTED into loving relationship with Jesus. All of this will point the glory right back to Christ himself as we see our city and our nation become reawakened to love, grace and truth of Jesus Christ right before our very eyes.
Today as we walk into our most favorite day of the week, let us GATHER together to SERVE, and see people ACCEPT Jesus maybe for the very first time. Let us be reminded that we ALL have something significant to bring into Gods House. That just as we are learning at Resurgent, the church is meant to be a taste of heaven here on earth so let’s not be shy about it and instead let’s begin to pray for all those we wish to see enter our doors on a Sunday morning.
Who are you extending the invitation to today?
