While helping start a new church, I watched a church experience God restoring life and vitality. The senior adults at New Hope had been trying to hold on to life, and they were dwindling away. When they began to give themselves to help start a new church, they began to experience a restored life and vitality! Jesus talked about that principle in Luke 9:24: “Whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it” (NIV). Is your church focusing all your attention on yourselves trying to hold onto life? Seek the Lord and His Kingdom first and join what He is doing. You may be amazed at your experience of renewed life and vitality.
