The JOURNEY is about lives...

I am SO thankful that I get the honor of being a part of a great church. It is an amazing thing to be involved in a movement where God touches hearts, where people experience forgiveness and love, where the truth is actually setting people free. This last weekend was a complete and total party, as we got together and focused wholly on how GOOD God is. We focused on how good his gifts to us are. And we praised God for the gift of Jesus...who came to seek and save lost folks like US! My favorite thing in the whole world is to see, to actually SEE tangibly how God's invasion transforms lives...

So here are a few lives that have been touched by Jesus. It's a short video, but the good news is that it's entirely true. These men and women aren't perfect...none of us are. But each life here has been invaded and changed by a loving Savior named Jesus...the journey is about lives.

And Jesus is crazy about the life called YOU.

Wow! I missed that service because I was out of town. I'm not ashamed that the love and excitement of Jesus shown through that brought me to tears. How do we not all share that with everyone we see? Myself the most of anyone.

I hope you don't mind that I shared your blog on my blog today... My family does not know Christ so I ask for your prayers that they watch this video...
God Bless and thank you so much for helping me grow in Christ!

Mike,

I met you back when you were the Crave Pastor. I'm working for Saddleback now as the Youth Pastor for the Irvine Campus. It's great to see that you keep changing the world and loving God with all of your heart.

Take care,

Leo Galarza

I sure ope OCC does a "cardboard" service again someday. If I had been there, I probably wouldv'e written something like "unguided and hopeless"

flipside: "Confident in God's great plans!" :)

God is good...all the time.
