The Big Mo!
Momentum is a tricky thing. Those people or organizations that have it are able to do amazing things. When you have the MO it is like riding a bike down a big hill. You don't have to pedal, you just ride fast. I'll bet Mack Brown @ Texas doesn't have to recruit very hard this year to get football players to come play for him. Why? Texas has the Big Mo after winning the national championship. This morning I begin speaking at my new church. There is a rich tradition here and God has done great things in the past. But there has been a stall in the MO! Whenever new leadership begins, an organization is ripe for the big Mo! We are starting some new ministries over the next few months. There is an excitement in the air. We need a few victories. We need to see God do some great things. Now is the time to seize the big Mo! I pray that we will start with a lot of momentum. Prayer is key. The early church in Acts had momentum. They saw 1000's of people come to Christ. They had a mega-church from the beginning. They didn't rest after they had a huge group of new converts. They had the big Mo! In Acts 2, 3000 people responded to Peter's message. The MO was flowing. They still kept working. They worshiped together, fellowshiped, broke bread and prayed. They could have said we have over 3000 baby Christians we can't handle anymore. But they kept working. The big Mo can't be stopped. Acts 2 says the Lord added to their numbers daily that were being saved. That is the big Mo! I am praying for God to give us the big Mo! I just want to be part of something bigger than myself. With God's grace and a little momentum I think I can!
