IF:Gathering was a taste of heaven, maybe more than any other I've experienced... countless people around the world encountered Jesus and His Word through the live stream. God willing, people around the world are more in love with Him and more clear of their sacred and urgent purpose here.

Tell me you tasted it out in your places?

The standing ovation for Tasha as my warrior friend cried feeling the friendship and support of all of you around the world? The Holy Spirit is using her mightily to build bridges of racial unity.

Coaches, sisters, mothers, single friends sharing their stories of following Jesus in simple ways and getting a glimpse of how that could change eternity?

And Jill Briscoe? It was like time stood still.

But the best part was hearing stories of you leading in your homes and churches around the world. This was one of the most miraculous and God-breathed things we’ve ever seen.


We live in a unique time and I never want to lose the wonder I have over all that is happening around us. Guys- Jesus is better and dearer and wants us more than I realized even days ago. He is using you in your places to shift eternity... I've never been more sure of it.

And here’s my deepest prayer: that you would love God and love the people around you. That you would let His Word be your strength and peace. That you would let the Living God fill your well and let it spill over into the people around you.

This is not a special calling for the especially mature- this is the great equalizer! If you know Jesus, you have something to give away. Period.

I know right now some of you do not feel qualified to do this…

maybe no one has ever done it for you,

or maybe you feel distant from God,

Or maybe you have screwed up so big

or maybe you haven’t been walking with Him very long.

But one thing I know, God usually moves most through those who know they are not qualified.

"...the mystery that was hidden for ages and generations is now revealed to You and so that you would reveal it to everyone….. which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.…" Colossians 1:26-28

So, THANK YOU for saying yes, for being brave and inviting people into your homes and churches. Thank you for being with your people so they could be with Jesus! His glory alone is what we seek in ALL things.

What is one way you saw God move? I cannot wait to hear your local experiences. Tell us about your groups? Who was there and what happened?! Comment below.
