We’re trusting God that this Sunday is the biggest Sunday of the year at Graystone Church. We are not trusting God for the highest attendance of the year but for the most LIFE CHANGE. We are praying for dozens of lives to be CHANGED for all eternity.
In order for this to happen, EVERYONE needs to do his or her part. I’ve asked each of you to circle at least one person in prayer and invite them to Graystone. I will do my part by clearly and passionately sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and brining EVERYONE to a point of decision. And ultimately, it will come down to God. God is the only one who can CHANGE a person’s heart. And that is what we are trusting God to do. We can plant seeds and water them, but God causes the growth (1 Corinthians 3:6-7).
So hopefully, each of you has a person you are circling in prayer and inviting to come this Sunday. And I would say, do whatever it takes to get them to church as long as it is legal, moral, ethical and Biblical. If you need to pick them up in a hummer limo, buy them lunch, or promise to go to their child’s U6 soccer game or piano recital, then do it.
As we have learned and discussed during our 40 Days of Prayer, we need to claim God’s promises from His word as we draw prayer circles. Remember, if we pray according to God’s will, He hears us and answers our prayers (1 John 5:14-15). So, let me give you a few Bible verses to claim for the person in your prayer circle and for this Sunday at Graystone.
I’m personally claiming Romans 1:16 for my message. Please pray this one with me.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to EVERYONE who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16
Here is one to pray for your friend, neighbor or loved one.
for, “EVERYONE who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
Here is a verse to pray for Sunday, October 20 at Graystone Church.
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is THE DAY of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2
Let’s do our part and trust God to do what only He can do!
