A group of us from St Matthew’s had a fantastic evening at The Globe on Wednesday night at the Ed Silvoso evening. We heard many encouraging stories of how God’s people in Reading are impacting the town, and how whole communities around the world are being transformed by Christians who have caught the vision that all of us are ministers of the gospel in our own spheres of influence.
Ed encouraged us with the thought that, whether we are in business, in caring professions, or stay-at-home mums; whether we are shop-keepers, taxi-drivers or ice-cream sellers, we don’t go to work, we go to worship. And he finished the evening by praying for an anointing on the whole church in Reading to aim for nothing less than a town transformed by the love of Jesus. It was exciting stuff and I certainly felt a powerful presence of the Holy Spirit as hundreds of people linked hands to receive the anointing and determined to live out God’s call on their lives.
I will be praying that the Holy Spirit’s anointing will fall on everyone at St Matthew’s to equip us all to be the people that God is calling us to be so that each of us become change agents in the places where we live and work.
With love in Christ,
