it's the first of february and i am pretty excited. bill johnson is beginning his weekend of messages at our church. i am not sure if i know another teacher in the church that communicates and challenges me as much as bill. he seems like such a great father. the fruit of his labor and ministry is impressive. i expect that this weekend will be bigger and more substantial than we can imagine. i am not talking about numbers of people. sure, many people will be there, but that is not important to me. and on a side note, i am concerned about pastors who define success by numbers. oh, they won't talk about it and openly admit it, but the majority of pastors struggle with it. somehow our society defines successful churches as large churches. maybe. but Jesus determines success by how people are following him, is the kingdom of God advancing and are we maintaining a white hot love for God. (and yes, i struggle with the numbers game at times). back to my original point. i know that we are going to miracles. people will be healed this weekend. there will be tremendous energy and momentum in our meetings. God will be there. I am so in love with God and looking forward to being with him in a corporate gathering for the weekend. may God grant us the wisdom and revelation needed to steward His deposit. anyway....that's enough for now....

until next time...
