On the verge …

18 Nov

Here we are.  On the verge.  I feel like Joshua, about to lead the Children of Israel across the Jordan and in to the Promised Land.

Tomorrow we will do something we’ve really never done in my 21 years at Ebenezer:  A walk-through for Sunday.  Not really a rehearsal, mind you, but a walk-through to test microphones, lights, get familiar with everything.  There will be close to 100 people there tomorrow morning to get our ducks lined up for Sunday.

Sunday will be an emotional day for Ebenezer.  We’ve worshiped in what will now be known as the “Chapel” since 1889.  On Sunday, we will begin our Sunday worship day in that room one more time.  And then, as a group, we will move to the new facility.  With an added surprise or two!

Speaking for the staff and myself, none of us will probably sleep on Saturday night.  The excitement is building!!  We are on the verge of God’s next major step for Ebenezer Baptist Church.  My prayer tonight (and from now own) is that God will use that new room for His glory!!  Not for ours.  If we built it for US, we built it for the wrong reasons.
