FRIDAY, JANUARY 21
So the man started off to visit the Ten Towns of that region and began to proclaim the great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed at what he told them.
Mark 5:20 (NLT)
LIVING SENT IS AMAZING
While reading John 3 to her little daughter, a mother paused after the 16th verse and exclaimed, “Don’t you think that’s amazing, dear?” The child looked up in surprise and said, “No!” Thinking she might have misunderstood, the mother repeated the question. Again the girl shook her head and said, “Mommy, it would be amazing if it were anyone else, but really, it’s just like God!”
The proclamation of his personal transformation produced amazement. If any man could be a “poster child” for 2 Corinthians 5:17, this demon possessed man could, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” The word “amazed” describes the human response when confronted by divine revelation in some form. It means to be struck with admiration and astonishment.
Over the past 25 years our community has been amazed to see God’s people reach out and Live Sent. So many have become a part of God’s family because they were amazed to see the difference Jesus has made in the lives of so many. What have you seen God do that’s amazing through our church family?
Praise God for the amazing things He has accomplished through our church. Ask God to continue to do even more amazing things in our community through our church.
