Wow. Last Sunday was our launch service and I am absolutely blown away by God’s grace. Sure, we worked hard, but we could only do so much with human effort. God showed up and he showed off. A few weeks ago, a friend delivered a message to me from the Lord that he felt in his time of prayer was meant for me. It was, “Do your part, and I will do mine. I got this.”
Through the coming weeks I watched that unfold before my eyes. Someday I hope to be able to tell the whole story of how we got here and all of the obstacles that stood in the path of this church plant. What a story we have to tell. Someday, but not today. Today, we celebrate the launch of New Life Republic. Today, we focus on the future as we now open our next chapter. All I can tell you for certain is that miracles happened and God moved. His hand is on his church.
These first four weeks will be incredible as I craft and deliver messages of things that have been on my heart for the better part of the last year. I love Jesus, and I love his church for whom he gave his life for.
I am honored to be your pastor.
