Back in January, we started a sermon series at FaithPoint titled, Build Your Kingdom Here. During this sermon series we did two things:
1. We asked that you would write down 5 names on a 3 x 5 card. You started to pray for the names on your card. We asked you to pray for the people on the card, pray for your relationship with them, pray for God to open the opportunity for you to meet with them and cultivate that relationship, and pray for you that God would prepare you for talking to those people about Jesus.
2. We created a hashtag for FaithPoint’s use on social media. It doesn’t matter if you use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+. The hashtag is #codeblueyear. We want you to use this hashtag to share with FaithPoint and the rest of your social network what amazing things Jesus has been showing you this year.
In hospitals, Code Blue is generally called to indicate a patient that requires resuscitation or is in dire need of immediate medical attention.
How does that translate to a hashtag for FaithPoint?
Jesus says in Luke 5:31-32,
Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.
We believe that Jesus is not done working in the Middle Georgia area yet. We are in a city where much needs to be done. We know that there are people that live here that Jesus wants to redeem. He wants to be their Lord, Savior, Redeemer, Shepherd, and King. He will accomplish this through His churches.
Jesus is going to use:
- gospel sharing
- Jesus loving
- Bible obeying
- gospel centered
What can you do?
As you are studying the Bible, as you are engaging with your friends, family, co-workers, as you are praying, as you are sharing the gospel, as you are inviting people into your home, as you are excited about what Jesus is doing – use the hashtag to share with others on your social network channels what Jesus is doing.
We look forward to reading all the posts tagged with #codeblueyear.
Our other tag is #myFaithPoint. We will talk about that one later.
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow at our Wednesday night gathering.
I love you, FaithPoint!
