“The Promise: ‘I Will Do a New Thing’”

www.pmchurch.tv

□ The Plot

 Daniel Burnham, Chicago architect: “Make no small plans, for they do not contain the magic to stir men’s souls.”

□  The Promise

  •   Isaiah 43:19-21
  •   Isaiah 44:1-3
    • Water = Floods = My Spirit = My Blessing
  •   John 7:37-39
    • Water = Rivers = Holy Spirit = Blessing
  •   Desire of Ages: “Only to those who wait humbly upon God, who watch for His guidance and grace, is the Spirit given. The power of God awaits their demand and reception. This promised blessing, claimed by faith, brings all other blessings in its train. It is given according to the riches of the grace of Christ, and He is ready to supply every soul according to the capacity to receive.” (672 emphasis supplied)
  •   Ron Clouzet: “Admittedly, in the vast areas of the western world, we are a church in decline. Our preoccupation for the things of the world, and our searing blindness to our true condition, have made of us—who have talent, resources, and much history in Jesus—a puny spiritual people. We really are terminally ill, but little do we know it. We’ve been medicating for so long that we don’t know what health is like any more. . . . What we desperately need is a double dose of spiritual aid—a revelation of the character of Christ and a thorough baptism of the Spirit.” (Adventism’s Greatest Need 184)

□  The Proposal

  •   “If you will find voice and time to pray, God will find time and voice to answer.”

    (Prayer 100)

  •   Would you be willing to join me in praying every day this summer for God to

    fulfill His promise to do “a new thing” in our midst this coming school year?

  •   Would you be willing to daily ask Him to begin His “new thing” by pouring out His Spirit on you?

Love on the Move

Over the summer and fall of 2019 Pioneer underwent significant physical renovation—including a new roof and a major Sanctuary makeover. During the same time congregation leaders engaged in multiple conversations about our missional renovation—how does a faith community like Pioneer seriously engage and impact the people around us for Christ? From this dialogue emerged a fresh new expression of our Pioneer mission: "Love on the Move."
