This weekend is a trap weekend.
The trap that is tempting us right now is to look past this Sunday. We have much to accomplish to be ready for the big Christmas responsibilities we’re all facing this coming week. This trap is dangerous. We can lose a lot of momentum if we fall prey to it and it can cost us more than just this one weekend!
For instance, this weekend someone is going to be at our church for the first time. This is the first time that we get to make an impression and show them what we’re all about. This might be the only time they ever enter a church. This could be the weekend that their life changes forever. If we fall into the trap, we lose that opportunity.
So this weekend, avoid the trap. Create the intensity to keep things happening. Cast vision. Be intentional. Fight for focus.
Who knows, this might be the most important weekend we ever have.
