Revolution Shake Down

I wanted to take a couple minutes and follow-up with my post last week about the new series we are doing, called New Year's Revolution.

After last week's opening message I was excited, nervous, energized, and many other adjectives that I can't even think of. My point is this...the series is a culture shift for NLCC and I Love it! Pastor Dave kicked off the new year with a spin of the helm and is taking this family in a new direction. A direction that I see as being more outreaching to a lost community, and less about serving ourselves, to keep us plump in "christianity".

Often times, a church series can kick off well, and the series looses its energy or focus in the following weeks. That is not the case with this one. Pastor Dave came back this week and hit it hard again, with the first of 5 steps to creating a New Year's Revolution...Know. We have to "Know Christ"!

Here is where my excitement comes from: There is no doubt that this series and this new direction that Pastor Dave is leading us on is from God. This has been something on Pastor Dave's heart for quite a while. However, there are some people in our church who may not like this series...because it is convicting!

My question then becomes this: Lord, if you are prunning the branches back, what are you making room for? I can't answer that. I can only dream what God has planned for NLCC in 2008. I do know this, it will be great!


We have a choice NLCCers...we can grasp that excitement and be a part of something GOD-size, or we can walk away and become something man-size. Join me and everyone else at NLCC and be a part of something GOD-sized....I know you won't be disappointed!

What's your New Year Revolution?

I think the series is GREAT so far! I think Pastor Dave has been very honest and sincere about what God has put on his heart. I too am very eager to see what God has in store for us this year!
