A Picture of the Church
In January, we put together an art project called the More Than Project. Each participant in our church took a photo and attached a prayer to the back side. This project is currently on display in our worship space at John Ross Elementary, Sunday mornings, from 10:00 AM to Noon.
Each person has something to contribute to our church. Each person has a unique way that they pray. Each person has a story of faith that is being written. Collectively, we make up the body of Christ as we’ve been exploring in Ephesians 4.
Together, as the body of Christ, we are asking God to do more than we could ask or imagine according to Ephesians 3:20-21. We are grateful for those who stepped out in faith to participate in the project. We cannot wait to see how God works in and through His church!
The Next Step
As we prepare our hearts for Easter in the coming weeks, we want to look at the implications of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. What does this mean for us? What if our greatest More Than prayer was for a deeper identity in the work of Christ? What if our greatest More Than prayer was to be a people who treasure Jesus more than anything else because of all He has done for us? What would happen if our More Than prayers became BY NAME prayers directed toward those who do not yet know the redemption found in Jesus. What kind of things might we see God do in our lives, and in the lives of those around us, if we prayed like that? God is able to do far more than we could ever ask or imagine. That is a promise that we can put our trust in. “To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:21)
