I have been quietly affected…possibly deeply affected…by what is happening at Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC over the past few years.
It’s not simply that they’ve become a highly visible mega-church that’s grabbed my attention. It’s the fact that more than 15,000 people have turned to faith in Jesus.
There are some who are critical of what’s happening at Elevation. Maybe a few of their points are valid…but it’s easy to cast judgement from the outside. The hard work is digging in, faithfully serving God and actually reaching real people in this cynical world and culture.
When just one person comes to faith in Jesus I’m moved deeply. When scores of people are responding to the love and hope of Christ…I’m completely undone.
Over the past couple weeks, Elevation Church held what they called Code Orange Revival. Twelve nights of worship and preaching and looking to God to transform hearts. I watched online almost every night. My heart was wrecked on several occasions through the messages and as I watched people declaring their faith in Jesus through baptism.
A few things that I experienced through Code Orange Revival…
My faith was encouraged.
My heart was challenged to know God more.
My eyes were filled with tears of conviction and joy more than once.
Thankfulness that Elevation Church made this available online (for free).
I realized that the best is yet to come!
Did you watch any of the Code Orange Revival online? How did it impact you?
