Collin Creek Church Weekly Update – 03.12.18

Dear Friends of COLLIN CREEK CHURCH,

Psalm 671:1-2 (HCSB): “May God be gracious to us and bless us; look on us with favor. Selah.  So that Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.”

Global missions expert Paul Borthwick shared the following story to remind us how God’s mission can be from anyone anywhere at any time:  A young man named Peter reminded me of a modern-day Philip. I stopped in to a McDonald’s in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and I noticed Peter working the counter. I recognized him from our young adult ministry at church, and I knew he had just graduated from Harvard University with a master’s degree. I greeted him and managed to get him to break free for coffee together.  “What are you doing here?” I asked, knowing that Harvard master’s degree students don’t usually aspire to work the counter at McDonald’s. “Well,” he explained, “I graduated in May, but I went four months without finding a job, so I said to myself, ‘I need some income to pay bills.’ So this is where I’ve ended up—at least for now.”

“Sorry to hear that. It must be hard,” I replied, but Peter cut me off.  “No. Don’t be sorry. God has me here. This place is giving me awesome opportunities to share my faith. I’m on a shift that includes a Buddhist guy from Sri Lanka, a Muslim fellow from Lebanon, a Hindu lady from India, and a fellow Christian from El Salvador. It’s awesome. I get to be a global missionary to my coworkers while asking ‘would you like fries with that?’”  He laughed and so did I. Like Philip, Peter found himself in a setting he never would have chosen as part of his long-term plan, but his mindset of living as a sent person shaped the way he looked at his circumstances and at the people around him.  (Paul Borthwick, Great Commission, Great Compassion, page 46)

Psalm 67:5-7 (HCSB): “Let the peoples praise You, God, let all the peoples praise You.  The earth has produced its harvest; God, our God, blesses us.  God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear Him.”  Learn more about Proclaim – The Motive at: http://collincreekfwbc.podbean.com/.  Join us next Sunday for: “Proclaim – The Church’s Mission.”
