Conquering and to Conquer

I don't know about you, but I'm very excited about our opportunity coming up to be a blessing to MATC. Remember that this is something we all need to participate in, whether praying or being at the event on Tuesday. Never underestimate how important and impacting your prayers are.

I want to share a short devotional that I read yesterday that I feel applies quite well to our present situation. This is an exerpt from 'God at Eventide', by A.J. Russell:

Always seek some conquest, for spiritual growth requires it. In the natural world you see how necessary this striving is, and in the mental and spiritual worlds there must be a struggle too.
So, as you go forward in your spiritual life, you will see always a fresh conquest demanding your effort.
Shun stagnation. Never be discouraged if always you see some fault requiring to be overcome, some obstacle to be surmounted.
Thus you go forth with Me conquering and to conquer.

Super Bowl Party This Sunday Night

After Sunday night's service (which I am preaching at), all crossroaders are invited to my house to watch the superbowl. We have TIVO, so you won't miss anything. Jen Rieger is organizing the food aspect of the evening, so give her a ring so we don't have 15 bads of Doritos and nothing else! Hope you can make it!
