CCC Family,

What is your motive?  What drives you?

Why are you at worship on the Lord’s Day? (or not at worship some Lord’s Days?)

Why are you reading this email?

Motive is everything… and quite the complex reality when our hearts our described as “deceived” (Jeremiah 17.9) and in need of rescue.  Even as God renews and awakens our heart, we remain caught in a wrestling match between the motives of our flesh/spirit (Galations 5).   We operate with redeemed hearts that fight a vast spectrum of motives….

This Lord’s Day, as we turn to John 2.12-25, there are many MOTIVES at play in the story of Jesus cleansing the temple.  What is John’s motive to place the story at the beginning of his gospel, compared to the other gospels recording the scene later in their narrative?  What is the motive of the countless crowd who journeyed to Jerusalem’s temple for the Passover?  What was the motive of the priests to allow the sale of oxen, sheep and pigeons in the outer court of the temple?  What was the driving motive of Jesus’ zeal in overturning the tables of the money changers?  What was the motive of Jesus veiled announcement of his coming death/resurrection?  What is the Spirit’s intent (motive) for our understanding through this text?

The Gospel of John has launched with a bold announcement of WHO Jesus is, and how he is inaugurating something TOTALLY NEW (2.1-12, water to wine) for his glory and the good of his people.  Come and worship this Lord’s Day, bring your motives… and may the Lord show us the explosive newness of his presence among his people through Jesus, the true Temple.

I hope to also see you on Saturday evening at Apple Valley Farm for our church Fall Farm Day!  Please remember to RSVP HERE if you haven’t already.

Peace today!

Help Set up a church library

CCC has been blessed to be gifted a significant portion of the library of Pastor Steve Perkins, which
we hope will be used by God to inform/grow the worldview and knowledge of our body. We want
to honor Steve and Cindy by setting up a beautiful and organized “library” in the Upper Room. If
you are interested in joining others in a short term project to assemble IKEA shelves and categorize
hundreds of books, please email Joseph Barnet at joey.barnet@gmail.com.
