The message is “STANDING IN THE RAIN IN JERUSALEM”. CCC is unified in a vision to cry out to God for His power to be displayed in our midst, meeting the needs of hurting and broken people and living out the words, Hope Found Here. The world doesn’t need an argument from the church; the world needs to see the power of God in the church.
This message teaches that the path to power runs through repentance and consecration. As we cling to God rather than nurture our sinful nature, the power of the Holy Spirit intensifies within us. We talk about the beauty of a heart surrendered to God and how it can open the door to unleash life-giving power on the world.
Please listen to the message and let us know if it was a blessing to you.
The message is titled "Woke." We start off the new year with a series of messages that serve as a challenge to the church. Much of popular culture uses the word "woke" to describe the experience of becoming aware of injustice. This term was initially used to describe being awakened to racism, but as often happens, words are hijacked and given wider, unintended meanings. The definition of the word "woke" now includes many things that stand contrary to the word of God.
This series is not about debating with culture about whether or not they are indeed "woke," but more so encouraging the church to understand that the world doesn't need a better argument. What the world needs, is to see the power of God in the church. The church needs to be "woke"!
"Woke" to the reality that God can radically change any situation.
Join us as we begin a journey asking God to shake His church, wake us up, revive, and fill us with the kind of power that will change the world around us. Lord, let your glory fall in this place.
