You need to watch the full message from Sunday (above) and you need to share it with your friends and family. It contains strong encouragement that I believe is directly from the Holy Spirit and for the Bride of Christ today. We need to operate in faith, we need to hold onto the word of God, and we need to allow the fire to make His word perfect in our lives. Get the word and get back in the fire! You were made for this! God is doing something great, and it’s time for each of us to wholeheartedly embrace His invitation to participate.
Watch the message and come ready to participate in the conversation. Next Sunday, January 24th, we’re going to have Lab Groups. We will break into groups in order to discuss some of the key ideas from The Language of Faith and to encourage each other in practicing what God reveals. The Lab Group experience is always revelatory and edifying for everyone — and it’s just fun! It’s how we as Wellspring grow as the Body of Christ with all of our various, diverse, and beautiful parts participating together.
Let’s grow together!
DAILY WORD FOR JANUARY 20, 2021
In the final watch of the night, sometime between 3am and 6am, the disciples were out on a boat, far from land and fighting wind and waves. They’d been beaten up all night just trying to keep their boat from being capsized, so they were exhausted, hopeless, and terrified. And then in the midst of the storm, they saw a figure moving towards them and they were even more terrified. But it was Jesus, and He said, “Be courageous! It is I! Don’t be afraid!”
For some of us the past months have felt like a long exhausting evening of continual battle to keep our boats from flipping. This is the final watch of darkness, the toughest hours. The waves have been pounding on us and the wind has been against us, and we feel weak and some are terrified. But look who’s coming in the midst of the storm! What is this approaching form coming into focus? It is the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Prince of Peace Himself!
In the storm, we think we’ve been abandoned. We have not! We look around in dismay and fear, and we misidentify our circumstances as godless and ourselves as forsaken. Yet it is Him! Jesus is saying, “Rise up in boldness and reject all fear! What you see coming is Me!”
