V Festival: The Challenge

vfestival_logo_2013Well Hello I’ve now posted my second blog but I am now however off to V festival. I am not going as a punter. I am going with a Church of England team, We give out water, but we also look to have great conversations with people who come to our Marquee. This is the Third year I will have done it now. Every year a new challenge has appeared. But with that has come great conversations and hopefully some conversions. The Passage that I am going to take with me this time to the V festival is :

Colossians 3:15-17

15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

The reason for this, is it is very easy to just be used as a service at V fest’ To be just used as a watering hole, and get into the wrong conversations with people. But it should be everything that our team does should all be done “In the name of the Lord Jesus” Because at the end of the day, that is what we want, We want The Lord Jesus glorified. We love people. That is why we help them in any way we can.  We love them so much and we want the one thing they really need, for them to know the Lord Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. We should try to make this happen, empowered by the Holy Spirit, in the conversations that we have, in the way we act as a team, the servant ministry, and in the Love that we have for them. After all,  the love we have is tiny compared to the love that Christ has for them.

But with this boldness there is always the risk that we will be bombarded by Satan. But we need not fear, for we have the victory in Christ. We need to remember, that even at 2am, when abuse is hurled at us, people saying awful demonic things:  we have the victory! Christ has won!

Please if you can, Pray for the team, that God moves At V Festival, That there is encouragement. I will post about it, when i return.
