I love the narrative in Acts 4:13: When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. Peter and John were ordinary men who walked with Jesus.
By ourselves, we are ordinary; Jesus is the extra.
Extra Time With Jesus + Ordinary Me =
Ordinary people don’t change their worlds. Ordinary churches don’t attract hungry, hurting people.
But extraordinary people and extraordinary churches are world changers!
I desire for 2009 to be an extraordinary year. I desire that people take note that I have been with Jesus.
Are you ready to spend that extra time with Jesus? Are you ready to be extraordinary this year?
