It’s true that there are many things you can believe in, and there are a lot of affirmations that we make as Christians. However, my guess is that you already have enough affirmations. There is one thing I want most from you today: I want you to believe that you can become more, and you can achieve more. It’s not the first time that I’ve mentioned this, but I love big Christians more than I love big churches. Yes, big churches serve their community well, and I think they’re great. I love it when people come here to worship with us. There is no doubt that the more people who attend church, the more like a party it becomes, right? You want people to show up! There is just something about us gathering together that makes the energy soar. I think it’s fantastic. However, God cares more about big Christians than he does about big churches.
It is possible for one big Christian to accomplish far more and make a bigger impact than the largest church in the world. It’s been done before. Take for instance, Martin Luther King, among others. It’s our goal to build a big church full of big Christians. It’s the bigger Christian that matters at the end of the day. Friend, the bigger Christian, is the one who relies on Jesus Christ to expand his or her life and experiences. As redeemed people, they can demonstrate the best way to live in a fallen world. Becoming a bigger Christian means having faith and believing before you see. You’ll see, all right, but you believe first before you see the amazing things God can do in your life. Believe you are capable of becoming more and achieving more!
