Doing the stuff of heaven

What do I mean by doing the stuff of heaven? This morning as I worshipped at our home church, standing next to my wife on my left and friends from Kansas on my right and our week old baby girl below me in her car seat I couldn’t help but think were doing some of the stuff of heaven. 

‘Day and night they never stop saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” Rev. 4:8 

The Lord is about raising up worshippers here on earth as it is taking place in heaven. Ministry leadership is not just about speaking information, and getting people to make decisions for the Lord, it is also about seeing people experience the Lord, and live out a life of enjoying God. 

Last month we worshipped with the kids in Hanover, a  rural community out on the plains of Colorado. I was gripped by how these kids worshipped. My passion is to see kids from the mountains to the prairies become worshippers, lovers, seekers of God who enjoy God with all their hearts. We need more of the stuff of heaven to be our stuff too. His Kingdom come here on earth as it is in heaven!!

Be a worshipper yourself. Do what you were created to do. You were created now to do the stuff of heaven, that is the stuff of worship. 

But can I end with this? It takes for you to be in a position in your heart and life where you simply are in enjoyment of God. Maybe you didn’t know that was possible.

 

Keys to enjoying God:

-Get right with God, become a follower of Jesus Christ. We can help! e-mail me 

-Be in complete surrender of your heart and life to Jesus. Be willing to repent of any sin in your life 

-Ask God to give you a hunger for prayer and His Word 

- Ask God to make you a worshipper. Ask Him to fill your heart with a growing affection and energy for Him. 

“To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” Rev. 5:13

New member of our family and ministry

dsc_0228Maizie Evangeline entered our world at 1:48 a.m. Monday after arriving at the hospital 10 minutes earlier. With the ten minutes to spare I told Danae we should have stopped for a hamburger before entering into the delivery mode immediately after we got into the admission room. 

Maizie weighed in at 6.7 pounds and was measured at 18 inches. 

The name ‘Maizie Evangeline’ means  a never ending pearl of good news. 

I can’t think of no better way than to raise our kids on the mission field. Together as a family we get to see God repair broken lives, broken homes and experience the joy of fulfilling the great commission. We pray that in the years to come there will be never ending stories of God’s rescue in the lives of so many lost people in Colorado. Thrilled about doing it together as a family.
