Why we do this!
I want to pause between week 2 and 3 of Turning Point Church and simply let people know why we are doing this. Maybe that seems ridiculous, but I don't think so! Why get up so early to set up? Why do everything the best we can? Why is it hard work? Why donuts, lights, computers, signs and ??? Why is a great question. Here it is; lost people matter to God. That's God's focus and it should be our focus as well. Lost people!
So, with that in mind, let me celebrate these why's with each of you. I'm meeting people coming to Turning Point who haven't been to church for months and even YEARS! Nope, not exaggerating that! That's why! We've had over 50 people turn in VIP cards as first and second time guests! That's why! We've had 8 people say, 'I want to know Christ' in my life. That's why!!! Those are some pretty significant why's.
Can you sense the excitement? Can you feel the urgency of that? Keisa and I are just amazed at what God has done already and that we get to do this with each of you!
But it is right to celebrate. For he is your brother; and he was dead and has come back to life! He was lost and is found! (Luke 15)
