It Happened to Me: Week Two
It was another great weekend at Calvary. You have done a great job inviting people and the last two Sundays we’ve had incredible crowds and scores of first time guests! Sunday I taught from Hebrews 11 and this week in our Life Groups we’re talking about how faith involves taking a risk. All of us have things we know and things we don’t know. We never see the entire journey from the first step, but that doesn’t keep us from taking the first step. It is what we know for sure that informs us and motivates us to step into what we don’t know for sure. Why should we believe our doubts and doubt our beliefs? Settle some things for sure, the reality of God, the character of God, and then trust and obey God even when you can’t see the finish from the start.
I hope this week you’ll continue reading from the Bible each day. This week’s reading plan is all from Hebrews 11:
Monday: Hebrews 11:1-6
Tuesday: Hebrews 11:7-12
Wednesday: Hebrews 11:13-16
Thursday: Hebrews 11:17-22
Friday: Hebrews 11:23-29
Saturday: Hebrews 11:30-38
Sunday: Hebrews 11:39-40
The verse to memorize this week is II Corinthians 5:7.
“We live by faith, not by sight.”
I really appreciate Tony Guevo sharing his story Sunday. You can watch the entire video in your Life Group this week or go onto Calvary’s Facebook site and watch it there. I appreciate Tony sitting with me live during the services to talk about his dramatic story. Remember I’d love to read/hear your story. Go onto the Facebook page and follow the directions to post your story of how faith happened to you! You can also go to the website and follow directions there. I am to hear and read many, many more stories over the next few weeks.
Finally, we are making a huuuge announcement this Tuesday, February 1, via the web-site, Facebook, and twitter. If you are not following us make sure you get in the loop. We’ll be making this announcement for the first time Tuesday morning and you want to be among the first to hear the exciting news. It is something that we have literally been working on for months. It will be big. It represents a major new expansion of our ministries and a fantastic new opportunity to reach our city with the news of the gospel. Don’t miss the news coming this Tuesday, February 1!
