Decisions…Decisions…Decisions

I know I’ve been AWOL from blogging for a week or two, but I couldn’t think of a better post to come back on!

I knew yesterday was going to be a good day, but I didn’t know it would be this good.  We’ve spent five weeks talking about who Jesus is…that is always a great start. But talking is easy.  Deciding to draw a line in the sand…make a decision…live your conviction…that is much, much harder.

So yesterday, we challenged people to decide whether or not they would give their life to follow this Jesus.

As you might expect, most (though far from all) of the people gathered at Suncrest have already decided at some point in their past that they would be a “Christ-follower” with their life.  And yesterday, hundreds of us across 4 campuses said we were renewing that vow.  That we would…and are…choosing it all over again.

I don’t mean to move past that too quickly because it is significant for everyone who expressed that decision.  Still, our passion burns  for those who are seeking but have not decided to give their whole life to Christ.

Yesterday…again across all 4 campuses…people did just that.  Almost 60 people decided to follow Jesus.  They were committing their life to Jesus for the very first time or committing to go beyond just wearing the cultural or family label of “Christian” to actively follow Jesus.

Love ya, Suncrest!  Love the way you give people space to work through their stuff.  Love the way you contribute by serving.  Love the way you celebrate baptisms (like you did yesterday).  Love the way you personally sacrifice for the sake of the mission.  Every decision made yesterday is part of your story.

All of a sudden, I’m in the Christmas Spirit… 🙂
