Acts 16:5

In my journey through the book of Acts I came across this verse:

"So the churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers" – Acts 16:5

I would say that this is the specific purpose for which I want to leverage my life.  Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing a church that is dying, dead, or simply ineffective in it’s mission.  It’s obvious the world needs more churches that could be described by that verse.  It was about 4 years ago when I pictured what a church for the unchurched could look like here in Baltimore, MD.  That picture in my mind, along with the realization that I wanted to live my life for that purpose is what has led me to where I am today, working for a church like the one I pictured.  It was a huge answer to prayer and I hope and pray we never stray off course.

In a message called Asking Big, Andy Stanley challenged everyone to pray for something big, something God-sized.  He said God is honored by our persistent asking.  Since I listened to that message I’ve prayed that God will make Baltimore known for strong, healthy churches.   Not because I want attention for Baltimore, or even for churches for that matter.  But because strong, healthy churches make Jesus known, and help people find their way to Him.
