Last weekend, all of Calvary’s multi-site gatherings joined at Eisenhower Auditorium on Penn State’s campus. We gathered to celebrate our unity in Christ. We gathered to affirm our common mission to reach the next generation. We gathered to lift up the awesome works of Jesus in our midst.
In Acts 2, as Luke is describing the spiritual atmosphere of the early church, he writes,
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
The spiritual atmosphere of the early church had this continuing aroma of awe. They were filled with awe at the might works of God in their midst. So we celebrated Jesus’ work in our midst. We had about 30 people come up and share the titles of God’s works in our midst. Some of the titles were “Before-After” titles, some where “Problem-Resolution” titles. Some were very specific. Some were more general. But each and every cardboard held a title that represented a work of God that fills us with awe.
The video below doesn’t have all of them…it doesn’t come from the house camera. The full one will be on our website next week. But here’s a bit more than a preview.
Thank you so much to all of you who shared, your life by God’s grace, is a trophy of awe.
