This past Sunday, I had the privilege to preach and for our church to worship with another church in the area. The beauty of it was the free worship atmosphere and the racial diversity. It was two different church cultures that brought something to the table, and Jesus was glorified.
For the first time since Overcomers began, we got to see what our vision looks like – people of different colors and backgrounds United in enthusiastic worship of the Lord Jesus Christ. God is teaching us so much through this process. God’s plan often comes to us in the most unexpected ways.
God is ushering us into a new season. With that, I am expecting the devil to fight it and some to find that they do not necessarily align with where God is taking us. At the end of the day, I know that I have One to please – the Lord Jesus Christ before whom I will stand at the Judgment Seat. I don’t want to hear Him say, “Good job pacifying people, Matthew.” I want Him to say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
Here is a glimpse of the message from Sunday. Please be in prayer for us as God unfolds His plan.
