Monday Morning Mind Dump…

  • What a weekend in my life and at Revolution Church
  • Yesterday at church, we dedicated Nehemiah
  • It was overwhelming to have our missional community stand with us as we stood in front of our church and commit to raise Nehemiah in a God honoring way
  • Love how we are now including our missional communities in the child dedication
  • Got to preach on spiritual adoption yesterday and talk about how God adopts us through Jesus
  • It is one of the most beautiful, yet neglected doctrines in all of scripture
  • The idea that God would pursue and choose us, give us the inheritance only Jesus deserves because he loves us
  • I got real emotional at the end of my sermon yesterday because I read a letter I wrote to Nehemiah about his adoption and the adoption into God’s family that we pray for him to experience
  • It is amazing the questions and feelings an adopted child feels and asks, and how closely we ask those same questions about God our father
  • Today, we finalized our adoption of Nehemiah
  • It was crazy to stand there and answer the questions of the state and how we will provide for him, how we will treat him as one of our own
  • He really has become one of our own, in so many ways
  • One thing that was special was to have so many friends and family be a part of yesterday and today
  • So grateful for that community
  • After all the hustle and bustle of last week, I’m really looking forward to some down time with my family this week
  • Thanksgiving his definitely coming at the right time
  • We talked about our next series coming on December 2, 9 and 16th called Man vs. Wife
  • So excited for this series
  • It’s been awhile since we’ve preached on marriage, dating, being single, preparing for marriage, divorce, and parenting
  • This is how we’re beginning to celebrate Christmas at Revolution
  • Mark your calendars for December 23rd, our Christmas Eve Eve service at Revolution Church
  • We won’t have church on the 24th, but we will on the 23rd
  • We’re kicking off the advent season this week at church
  • Always a special time to slow down in the midst of the busy holidays and talk about Jesus and why we celebrate Christmas
