This Weekend

I figured if I am spending time preparing and praying with a lot of expectation for God to move in our church this Sunday, it’s only fair that you would be doing the same as owners. Here are some tangible ways that you can get ready for our upcoming worship experience at Covenant this weekend.

-Pray that people who are Far From Christ, show up this weekend and meet Jesus. And by praying I don’t mean, “Just tossin’ one up to the Big Guy.” What I mean is getting down on your knees, and begging the King of all creation to literally change peoples minds and hearts, and direct them to Covenant this Sunday, and that these people will encounter Jesus and the Gospel in an irresistible and dynamic way forever changing the navigation and legacy of their lives for eternity.

-Pray that God’s presence and Spirit would fall on us as we worship Him through song this Sunday. Lift up Seth and the band in prayer as they lead us to the foot of God’s throne in our worship experience.

-Think of 3 people that you want to see at Covenant this Sunday. Begin claiming those people for Jesus Christ, in the power of Jesus name everyday up to our Worship Experience.

-Thank God for His favor and His blessing in your life, and in the life of our church.

-Beg God to use us as a church to make an impact so huge in this generation that the name of Jesus cannot go ignored.

-Ask God to speak to you and your family through His Word this weekend, and prepare your heart with that in mind.

-Show up Sunday expecting to see people come to Christ. Show up Sunday expecting to see people return to Jesus.

-Pray for me as your pastor and my family

-Picture in your mind our theater filled to capacity twice over with new believers. All of whom are singing and lifting their hands in worship, praising their King who set them free from bondage. Picture it. Pray for it. Claim it. Expect it.

Listen, it would be easy to sit back and JUST reflect on what God has done. And this is good, we SHOULD pause to reflect on baptizing 30 people, we should thank God for allowing us to see 32 people come to Christ in one service, we should be grateful for God packing out His house on Easter. But what i’m saying is this, let’s not stop and JUST look back at all God has DONE, but rather, let’s thank God for what has been accomplished and then press on into what God HAS for us. Because I truly believe our best days are ahead of us as a church. There WILL BE a day when we see hundreds baptized in a day, there WILL BE a day when thousands come to Christ in a single weekend, there WILL BE a day when we are praising God for the 50th church we have planted and the 15th campus that we have launched. There is a world out there that needs Jesus, and we are called to Seek and Save The Lost. So let’s move, let’s go! Don’t stop, don’t let up for even a minute! Press in and push on! We have been empowered by our Savior King to win this world for Him. So, let’s see the name of Jesus made famous across this globe. I can’t wait to see you this Sunday.
