Remember when Jerry Maguire (Tom Cuise) called his girlfriend towards the end of the movie and said, “we had a really big night. A really, really big night.”? He was talking about a breakthrough in his company.
The first Wednesday of every month our church has a service called Kurios (Greek: Lordship). And last night was a really big night.
One leader wrote to me later that evening: “I believe that God wants us to know that what Kurios was tonight is just a glimpse of what it will be. Be careful not to do anything to quench the Holy Spirit and we will be ushered in to something very special. There were people freed tonight. That is the start.”
Another member of the church also said that last night “a new standard had been raised.” Meaning that what was normal last week is not the norm now; that there is a new normal.
So, are you wondering what happened last night? It wasn’t an amazing touchdown. It was a move of God. Jesus was asking us to stop watching others experience God from the bleachers, but to run to Him. And we did. As a result of that desperation the presence of God was evident and people were set free to worship God, to give Him worth, without the shackles of sin and doubt.
It was a really, really big night.
