GBC in the Movies…or at least helping with one
This week a movie production company has been staging out of GBC for a film production being shot not far from here. Dozens of cast and crew have been here doing their thing. I’m particularly excited that they’re using, among other spots, the youth room since if you’ve been up there, you’ll know there are some great scripture verses and powerful statements all over the walls. What a great way to be exposed to the Good News of Jesus.
Please pray for them! They’ll be here until late Friday night.
This has been a great opportunity to show off GBC and a super outreach opportunity to a whole lot of people who don't likely know him. I’ve already had the chance to talk to several of the crew members.

40 Days of Prayer Update
Today is Day 16 of our 40-day prayer journey. How are you doing with this? Prayer is a discipline and needs to be practiced. Stick with it!
The verse for the day is Matthew 5:9 that says blessed are the peacemakers. Today, where can you be a person of peace and bring peace and the Good News of Jesus to your world?
Thought for the Day: Be a loving servant
We’re continuing to look at the character traits of Jesus. Character is what distinguishes, us, its who we are. May we look to be like Jesus in this way.
What do I mean?
Well, he was a servant
Without a doubt, Jesus was the ultimate servant. Although He was praised as a great teacher and even had a decent following, He made sure to teach them to be servants by actually doing it himself. In Mark 10:45, Jesus even tells everyone: “the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve.” Despite having the authority to get anything He wanted, have people praise and pamper him, He did the exact opposite by lowering himself and serving others. What a great example, and challenge for us as we go about our day.
As well, he was loving
Obviously, Jesus had a love for others. If He didn’t, He wouldn’t be compassionate nor a servant. Jesus claimed that there is no greater love than to die for one of your friends—and He did just that. If anyone doubts His love, all they have to do is look upon the cross and see the agony that He bore for our sakes. He experienced that horrible death so that all can be saved. That, very clearly, is true love at its finest. The question I ask myself, then, is who can I love sacrificially? I’d encourage you to do the same thing.
And that is what character looks like!
In His grip,
