The Church Rising

Standard

 

Isaiah 60:1-6 “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth. And dee darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.”

If ever there was a time for the church to rise, it is NOW. Fear, loss, depression -darkness is covering the entire world. We need to be told our ‘light has come’ because we are not aware of this. Faith accepts as reality what the Word says, not looking at circumstances. The glory of God is upon the church right now! God has a ‘BUT’ for every negative situation.

The global recession, job losses, housing loss, all contribute to darkness in peoples lives – So this becomes the church’s greatest opportunity to ARISE & SHINE. The Lord will arise upon those who have ‘risen & shone’. His glory will be SEEN upon those people who ARISE & SHINE. 

The church is a place of 1) Rising – people elevate in life. 2) Shining – it’s light and bright. 3) Glorious – the magnificence of God is in His House.

See you in Church

    What a great message to come home to this evening. I just left C3 Greensboro (North Carolina) where our wonderful church family came together this evening to pack up and move everything out of our old building and into the new and incredibly amazing new building!

    The timing of this move is absolutely significant, as our church is setting a shining example for our entire city. In this midst of everything that is shutting down, closing up, backing up, cutting back… the church is building, expanding, and making room for our beautiful neighbors.

    The most incredible thing about our city, is that C3 Greensboro is not the only church rising up and making some noise in our city… we are but one of several. Each has it’s own assignment in the body- but each are growing in both numbers and in influence.

    Even unbelievers are beginning to notice… they aren’t sure what is going on, but they are definitely noticing.

    Let the church ARISE!!!! Goodnight from Greensboro!

    Yes this is a time when the world may realise they cannot rely on riches. This is an opportunity to show the love of God and the truth. Pray we are equipped
