A Child Gets It

Luke 18:17

On this past Sunday, my six year-old daughter took her digital camera and left out the front door on a secret mission. She walked up the street to take a picture of our street sign, and then proceeded to come back and take a photo of our house number. Excitedly, she came running back into the house saying, “Daddy, you can put these on your posters to let people who don’t have a church know where ours is going to be. Maybe they will put them in the newspaper for us too!”

She spent her sunny Sunday afternoon wanting to make sure that everyone would feel invited and welcomed onto this journey. Strangely, my daughter “received the kingdom of God” through this act, because in her heart she knew that receiving the kingdom of God means that we share Him with others.

As we are in the process of gathering a community of people to serve as the launch team–Trailblazers— we are praying that God would raise up people like my daughter, who will be wondering who is someone I could share the message of God’s love with.

Later that day, she turned to me and asked, “Daddy, when will people start meeting in our house for church?” To which I replied, “probably a few weeks or so.” Her response, “Phew, I thought it was going to be a few years.”

Interested in joining her?
We will be gathering in a few weeks to begin praying and dreaming what God has in store for our lives. Email Wes to get more information.
