The hope of the world is all about the church. It’s not about legislation. It’s not about education. It’s about transformation. And we have an opportunity, friends, to step up and to weigh in and to trust God, and to do something that few churches have ever done.
And I’m talking about to get outside of ourselves, outside of the bless me club, as Bono said, outside of the holy huddle and think about others and do the stuff.
Do you think this stuff just appeared out of nowhere at Fellowship Church? People before you stepped up and brought some serious cantaloupes to make this deal happen. We planned this church for you. We planned Fellowship Church for people who haven’t shown up yet.
God’s blessed my life. As I told you, recently I signed the biggest book deal of my life. I got a large advance. When I signed it, God said, “Give it to Town and Country.” Then on top of that, God said, “Match that, Ed, from your savings.” And then this week, as I fasted and prayed, God said, “Add some more stuff to it.” So that’s what I’m doing, and I’m thrilled to do it. You can’t argue with God. It would cause my accountant to have palpitations if I told her what I was doing.
Why are you blessed? To do deals, recreate, procreate and die? You mean that’s the meaning of your life? Wow, that’s deep. That’s awesome. It’s all about the local church.
So what does God want you to do? If you’re seated on my left to your right on the end, you’ll see an envelope with a card in it. And make sure everyone on your row gets one. You don’t have to fill this out, but make sure everyone gets one. We’re gonna take some time just to go through these cards and to fill these cards out. If you’d do that.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Fellowship Church
