We are in Macon and on our last night. One of the youth suggested that I blog about the things that I learned in Macon.
I like that suggestion so in reflection over the next several days that is what I will do. I am going to miss being here. We are staying at SPORTSTOWNE http://christchapelmaconga.org/SportsTowne/CCSThome.html
Wow, what a place. Yes the facility is awesome but it is not the facility that impresses me so much , it is the Spirit of God that we are experiencing here in Macon at SPORTSTOWNE. We have been invited into the facility and we are not doing any mission work for this church, we have been given the keys to the facility, access to the kitchen, the football field, basketball court and we could go on and on. We are being served and we came to serve others. Isn’t that just how God works!
We have been learning a lot bout hospitality and about the Spirit of Christ. We celebrated in the worship service with Christ Chapel on Sunday morning and two people were saved duringthe praise singing. There was the longest time that I just closed my eyes and with 800 people in the building I felt like I was the only one. I felt alone with God while in a crowd. It is hard to explain, you just have to experience it. They don’t have anything that we don’t have in Hillsville, but they are operating on a different level or in a different mentality of service.
They believe that if you ask you will receive. They purchased this 10 million dollar building with only 3 million dollars and they did that without debt. Beth, the associate pastor said a couple of days ago the greatest thing, “we are not defined by this building, we may sell it tomorrow, we will just go to another facility and hold services there.
I am going to miss the experience that I have here of the peace that passes all understanding.
