As I'm writing this, I've just wrapped up my first experience at the Oklahoma Assemblies of God District Council. I was so grateful to be a part of this incredible event. I've never left something feeling more challenged and inspired to greatness than I did this.
So I want to issue the same challenge to all of you.
How low are you willing to go?
Are you willing to meet people where they are to love them and serve them? Are you willing to meet them in their shame and brokenness? Are you willing to go to the places that most would snub their noses at to serve the least of these?
We are never too good for something that God has called to.
The drug addict. The gang member. The orphans. The widows.
Are you willing to humble yourself and meet them in those places? Are you willing to love them first? Have you stopped to realized that it's your love for them and for Him that will compel them and draw them to Him?
Is that not our goal? To win souls for the kingdom of God.
Big events and flashy programs don't mean anything if souls aren't coming to know Jesus. To truly encounter Him.
So those people that you normally snub your nose at and turn away from, are you willing to humble yourself to where they are and be the love of Christ to them?
May I never be too proud to go lower for the sake of the cross.
May I always strive to go lower.
As always you can keep up with me over at ohhaiiitsbrandii.wordpress.com
Until next time,
