Pastor Ken Reporting – February 1, 2018

 We have a very full weekend of opportunities for you. Please be sure to read “One Big Thing” as well as the information in the announcements about Imagine Nashville.
ONE BIG THING
(If you don’t read anything else, read this)
We are holding a campus-wide week of prayer starting this Sunday, February 4. I am very excited because this truly is a campus week of prayer as Madison Academy, Madison Campus Elementary, and Madison Campus Church are all coordinating together. For better or worse we failed to consult our TV guides and did not realize until about a week ago that our first meeting is during the Super Bowl. We decided at this point it is what it is and you can make you own decision about attending, but we are going to continue on because this is a “week” of prayer. Madison Campus Elementary and Madison Academy will be leading our week of prayer at the church. Meetings begin with a light supper served from 6:00 to 6:45 pm. From 6:45 to 7:30 pm we will have our devotional time. At Madison Academy, Pastor Nacho will be speaking in the mornings, Mondaythrough Friday at 11 am. At Madison Campus Elementary, Madison Academy students led by Chaplain Jamieson will be speaking at morning worships at 8 am. You are invited to be a part of any or all the meetings happening on our campus. I know God has a great blessing in store for all of us!

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, in the end, “Thy will be done.”  C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce
This is one of my favorite quotes. To me it very simply summarizes the Great Controversy. God’s will or my will? Revelation 14:4 speaks of the 144,000 and what jumps out to me is that they follow the Lamb wherever He goes. That’s why they are pure. It is because they have submitted their will to Jesus and simply follow where He leads. Have you submitted you will to Jesus recently? Have you given Him permission for His will to be done in your life? If you haven’t, please do. If you have, please keep doing it daily and even moment by moment.
Remember to live our mission. Love God. Love people. Serve the world.

God’s blessings,

Pastor Ken
