What if you got a Direct Message from God?

Written communication has radically changed with the rise of new tech. Over recent years, we’ve moved from letters to email, and now, many people have moved to using DMs, a way to privately send direct messages to people on social media. How important a DM is is directly connected to its sender or source. It takes someone very bold to take the step of “sliding into your DMs” because it can take your relationship to the next level. I believe God wants to slide into your DMs and communicate directly with you! Imagine what you would DM back to Him if He did?

How does He get His message to you? In Jeremiah 33:3, God says, “Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.” He says if you want to hear from Him, all you’ve got to do is ask! He can speak to you through His people, through His Spirit, and even through your experiences. Of course, the clearest way that He speaks to you is through His Word, the Bible.

We know that Jesus loves the church so much that He gave His life for the church. But we also know that churches aren’t usually all that they can and should be. What does Jesus see when He looks at the church in general and at The Connection Church specifically?

Over the next seven weeks, in our new message series DMs: Direct Messages from God, we’ll look into 7 direct messages that Jesus sent to seven different churches in the Book of Revelation. As He speaks to these churches, Jesus tells them what He sees that’s good, bad, and let’s them know what will happen to them in their future. I’d say those are pretty important DMs! Those DMs weren’t just for them, they are for us too! In this series, we’ll discover how to apply these timeless truths to our lives to keep up the good work, change the things that need to change and become the people that God wants us to be!

You’re invited to join us for this 7 week journey starting this Sunday! If you can’t be with us in person, then follow along online or with our mobile app. And be sure to let someone else know so they can be a part of it too!

I'm a Connector, linking people with God and with others to experience the kind of life God has planned for them. I am the founding and Lead Pastor of THE CONNECTION CHURCH in Buda, Texas. I previously served in churches around the state as youth pastor and as pastor before moving to Kyle in the Spring of 2004. I love to lead people to connect with God and those around them and thrive on changed lives. I earned a doctorate in missions and evangelism with an emphasis on church growth. My heart beats for helping people connect with God and connect with others in an authentic community of faith. I love listening to and making music. I also enjoy hanging out with my family. Pam and I have been married since 1991 and we have two daughters, Makenzie and Bethanie. We are planting our lives in Hays County and allowing God to build a great church through us.
