This is truly an amazing time for Skyline. We have three services running each Sunday morning. This is a busy church, and yet there is so much joy and excitement in serving each week. Look at the STAR crew and the worship team setting up their audiovisual and musical instruments in Rose Garden downstairs, the ushers welcoming people, the hospitality and follow-up teams making friends. Every person who comes is precious. Each Sunday there is vibrancy, passion and excitement. It is contagious! God is blessing Skyline Mandarin as well as well as Skyline English. Many visitors come and each week, people receive Jesus into their lives. What is God saying to us in the midst of such favour?
It is to press in, in seeking Him, and living out His presence in our lives. He wants to bless us to overflowing this year! When the king of Israel came to see the prophet Elisha just before he died (2 Kings 13:10-19), he was told to strike the arrow on the ground. The arrow, he was told, was God’s weapon of deliverance of Israel from the Syrians. He only struck it three times. It was pitiful. Elisha said: “You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck Israel until you had destroyed it!”
I believe this is the time for us to press in as a church into God’s presence. The tool for this is prayer. How many times are you willing to “strike”? Come and build prayer altars at SkyHoP for your life, and for the church. Sign up today. Pray for your spiritual growth and for your family. Come together to press in at CP8 where God meets us each Tuesday night. Join the Saturday dawn prayer, or the ladies’ Thursday morning prayer. Press in. Press in. Press in, and we will break into a year that overflows with His love, with faith, and with miracles! This is His overflowing grace for us. All these promises are for you. So don’t grow weary. God is calling us to press in!
