Hi Everybody! This Sunday is it! This Sunday is BOLD COMMITMENT SUNDAY!
I am praying that 100% of Crossbridge will take a bold step of faith in the area of generosity! This is going to be a historic day in the life of our church. We will look back on this day as a marker in the history of Crossbridge!
As you are reading this will you stop and pray for Crossbridge?
- Pray we will surrender all of who we are to Jesus.
- Pray we will be led by the Spirit in what we are committing to BOLD.
- Pray God will foil the schemes of the evil one to distract us and destroy the work of the Gospel in our lives and in Fort Bend County.
- Pray God will get great glory from how we worship Him this Sunday!
- Pray the Spirit will do far more than we even imagine as we all step out in BOLD faith.
I’m praying for you Crossbridge! I am praying you will each hear God’s spirit leading you and then you will follow in BOLD faith. Kathleen and I have spent time praying a lot about our next step in generosity by using the Generosity Ladder found in the BOLD notebook. (click HERE) You can also go to this page on the Bold website to use it as a prayer tool.
My hope is that this has stretched you spiritually to trust Jesus like never before and be bolder in your prayers, words, deeds and giving for His glory, others good and your joy in Him!
To catch up on all things BOLD go HERE to watch messages, see video testimonies and share your story! We are getting some great stories from you that we will begin to share over the next several weeks.
Remember to wear your BOLD t-shirt this Sunday! If you forget, no worries, grab an extra one off the BOLD table. Come hungry because we’ll have kolaches and cinnamon rolls for everyone this week!
Going BOLD with you!
