We need Barnabas’ in the church today, people who look past what’s wrong and have something positive to say instead of negative. The world has a lot of negative messages for us already; the church doesn’t need to add to it. When people come into our doors we need to be that lifejacket for the drowning, we need to be the place of rest on a long journey. We need to be that word of encouragement and understanding shoulder. Of course sometimes the encourager needs to be encouraged. That’s the purpose in our revival this year. We want to give a message of encouragement, but we also want to be encouraged. I can think of no better group than Broken Vessels to give us that encouragement and lifting of the heart.
So my prayer for you is that you will take time out of a busy schedule and schedule the church in Sunday through Wednesday. We don’t have the services planned out to the second. I have some ideas of what I would like to happen. I know the music will be second to none. I encourage anyone who has a word of encouragement to be willing to share it. I think we need a time of prayer. I just want us to be encouraged in the Lord and share that with those around us. So come out and be a part of something good.
