Church Under the Bridge: Sunday, January 30

January 19, 2011

Hi everyone!  Are you ready to head downtown on Sunday, January 30? We encourage you to pray with us for Church Under the Bridge this month—that this event would be for His glory, that each of us would have the wisdom and direction of the Holy Spirit for what to do and say, that God would prepare hearts, and that He would do MIGHTY works (even if they don’t appear mighty by our standards).

As we prepare our hearts for Sunday, let us be encouraged by the words of Christ in Matthew 25:35-40:

“’For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ 

Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?  When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’

And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to me.’”

Know that what you do, even the slightest gestures, do not go unnoticed to Christ. He considers that everything you have done for His people, you have done for Him!  So thank you for all who have prayed, who have donated, and who have served downtown.  And let’s remember this month that everything we do for the least of God’s people, we do for Him.
