You may be hesitating thinking, “What will people think; what will people say?”
I want to tell you something else about the story that I didn’t say in the video. Right when Bruce got to that point of making that decision, a guy walked up and literally began to get Bruce off track and into some other stuff and it was almost the ninth inning. I remember looking at him and I began to pray, “Get this guy out of the conversation because he is going to blow the deal!”
I know a lot of you right now have a lot of excuses in your mind why you should not walk forward. Don’t hesitate.
A friend of mine is a professional athlete, and he and wife had been out of church for fifteen years. They walked through the doors of Fellowship Church the first time we extended an invitation. He stood in the back and walked all the way down front to make a public decision. So if a professional athlete will do that, which is some serious pride, you can do it. So don’t hesitate. Don’t worry about someone to your right or to your left, what they will say or what they will think. You come forward only as God leads.
I want to say something to you down front. This is the best thing that you will ever do. This is what Fellowship Church is all about, giving the opportunity to make this decision and then to discover the implications of this phenomenal life. It is the best part of life; it is what it is all about.
We want this place, Fellowship Church, to support you, to encourage you so that you can discover more about the best life and how to live in the sweet spot of God’s success. And we just want to help you and encourage you.
You know, anytime that God wants to birth a bunch of baby believers he looks for the warmest incubator he can find. And that is why I am so thankful to be a part of Fellowship Church. And I want to thank you for this incredible decision that God has orchestrated today.
Right now I am going to ask you to head out that way so that we can talk to you about the decision. So if you would follow these pastors out and head toward room 229 so that we can talk to you briefly on the upper deck.
If you came with some of these folks, after the service is over in the next couple of moments you can go up there and wait for them and they will be up in the lobby to greet you. But we want to talk to you briefly and give you some literature on this awesome decision that you have made. Let’s show our appreciation again
