What do you wear to an initial interest meeting?

April 16, 2017

So, we have our initial interest meeting tonight at 6:30 (note the link for those who haven't registered yet :) ) and truth be told, I have thought about this for a while. You only get one of these and it is one of those things I feel like I have been preparing for this for somewhere between 30 days and fifteen years. As a church planter, it is tempting for me to put together all manner of self-actualization metaphors together when you are preparing for your first actual launch team meeting. Into that abyss of self, God's word speaks up this morning with this beam of light:

 

His intent was that now, through the church,
the manifold wisdom of God 
should be made known
to the rulers and. authorities in the heavenly realms

Ephesians 3:10

 

So, the Church (note the big "C" here) is not ultimately designed to validate me, give me a job or simply meet the immediate needs of any particular person. The church we plant has a cosmic purpose to reveal Jesus and His power both in this world, and in the Spiritual realms to those who oppose God and those who in heaven who glory in Christ.

We have, what I think, to be an awesome vision and a calling from God and yet its ultimate purpose is a mystery that will not be revealed in this life. The power to fulfill that vision will come from that same heavenly source that birthed both the vision and the church in the first place.

 

So, wear whatever you want tonight.

Just make sure you read it in context of the greater vision revealed in the verse above.
