Climbing Mt. Everest seems easy…from across the ocean in the comfort of my living room. However, standing at the base is another story. It’s overwhelming and very intimidating. You come face-to-face with the reality that you might fail. You might not make it up the mountain. Some turn around at this point. But, others press forward willing to take the risk.
If you want to climb Turkey Mountain all you need to pack is a turkey sandwich. But, what’s the thrill in doing that? However, if you want to climb Mt. Everest you can’t do it in a day and you can’t do it alone. That’s what 30for300 has been about. All of us praying and fasting together. Now, we are just one week away from reaching the summit. I want to challenge each of you to take time this week to PRAY and FAST and INVITE. Who are the 3 people you are praying for and inviting? Over 200 names have been submitted for prayer. Each name represents a person that is far from God. Join us in praying that they will come this Sunday and experience the hope we have found in Jesus Christ. On our knees we will make it to the top!
You can fast a meal, a day, or all week. Also, join me for 3 @ 3. Set your phone to go off at 3pm and take a moment to pray for the 3 people you are inviting to the Easter service.
If you’re a regular at Connection please park in the east parking lot. If you’re new to Connection we’ve reserved the north parking lot, in front of the school, just for you. See you on Sunday.
Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, `May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.” Matthew 21:21-22
