Sunday Review: Oct 5th

Xcel rocked yesterday. Loved the theme across all venues of honouring volunteers and talking about serving. Great buzz at Darlington, worship was fantastic and I really enjoyed my message too.

Volunteering is the beginning of great opportunities for every individual…especially in the House of God! I think I chucked out at least a dozen quick thoughts about the power of serving…

Your heart changes
You discover it’s what you were created for
You make space for God to move
You see opportunities to serve everywhere
You open the door to greater things
You participate in the ultimate exchange
It’s Jesus’ great paradox at work “Anyone who loses their life for my sake will find it”
You become extraordinary
Actually you are not really extraordinary in Gods eye – just doing what you should. But in the worlds view you will STAND OUT
You won’t settle for mediocrity
You decide to become a person who wants to make a difference
You get to leave a legacy
You become salt & light to the world you live in
You won’t allow self to lead you in life

Packed full. Really encouraged by response from people. If you were there, let me know what you thought.

  1. Hey what a Great morning! It was really good to see Sharon and Ian honoured.
    You served a good word there Julian…(excuse the pun). Yet again great words of wisdom and a another great series in the making. maybe you should turn it into a mimi book for future volunteers.(just a thought)
    after reading your post i’ve got to mention this part ‘Actually you are not really extraordinary in Gods eye – just doing what you should. But in the worlds view you will STAND OUT’
    Man thats a fantasic sentence. love it..
