A Powerful Sunday Nite…

Mikebaptism Today was one of those days.

Normally when we use the phrase "one of those days" it is in reference to a day that just didn't turn out like we planned. Today definitely didn't turn out as I planned: it was much better.

Ephesians 3:20 reminds us that our God is the One who "…is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us," We were reminded of this today at Hyde Park. Thank You, Jesus, for Your work within us.

I hope that you were in attendance – If you weren't here's what I would share about Sunday, July 24th, 2010:

  • We had the privilege to see 12 people make a profession of faith today through baptism! Most were young people which is awesome! We have the opportunity to help these young people to live out their lives for Christ – thank You Lord!
  • I will never forget the overheard conversation in which a mature believer "poo-poo'd" a number of young people being baptized as if their profession of faith meant less than the profession of an adult. I will never forget hearing the story of the great preacher D.L. Moody telling his wife how the services were one Sunday evening – he told her that 3 and a half were saved. The way I remember the story she replies, "3 adults and a child?" to which he replied, "3 young people and 1 adult – the adult has already lived half of his life". May we take seriously the call to lead our young people to be revolutionary followers of Jesus Christ!
  • Our speaker today was Dr. Chris Schofield from the Baptist State Convention of NC. What an amazing and challenging message he brought to the body of Hyde Park. So thankful that he had the chance to speak to us today.
  • The crowd at 10:30 was a "rowdy" bunch! They were cheering for the baptismal candidates as if they were at a football game or something. How dare they be so excited about something so important?!?
  • As I said after the service was over, "Words cannot describe that 10:30 service – bunch of baptisms, passionate worship and God's presence clearly drawing ppl 2repent!"

Here's what some friends shared online about today:

  • "Second service was completely amazing today! The Spirit was certainly moving. But it was a very melancholy day, as well, as I'm sure you felt it too. You will be sorely missed in our worship at HP! But we know that God is going to use you in a mighty way in the coming months. May His hand continue to rest on you and your beautiful family!"
  • "God bless. may God be with you in this next part of your journey. thank you for pushing me when I didn't feel like being pushed. I love you and your family."
  • "How does one discribe the might, merciful, ALL LOVING, Holy God, of the Christ followers. WE CANN'T BUT IT SHOWS UP IN WORSHIP! Today was a day of retrospect for many and a new beinging for a lot of BELIEVERS." 
  • "God You are higher than any other! Wow…HP church worshiped today! You let Jesus know today just how worthy He is!"

I know that this sounds like "hype" but it really was that kind of day!

  • Music this morning: "Our God" (Passion), "Sing, Sing, Sing" (Tomlin), "Are You Washed" (PraiseHymns arrangement), "The Stand" (Hillsong), and at the invitation, "I will Rise".
  • In the 2nd service, during "I will Rise" the congregation began to rise to their feet one by one… very powerful moment.
  • VBS started tonite – looked like we had a pretty great crowd. Looking forward to a great week that will hopefully be marked by much life change.

One more weekend Hyde Park – the joy and pleasure has been mine. I love you.
