A friend recently gave me the latest ‘Rolling Stone’ mag that highlighted U2′s historic tour. Knowing I was going to the concert, he thought I would think it was cool to know some of the ‘back story’ behind their budget-busting, record-breaking tour. He was right.
Surprising to me, one of the quotes I read that stuck with me the most was not from U2, but their opening act: Muse. Regarding the honor of opening to such massive crowds and such a large opportunity, they said, “It’s a grounding experience… It reminds you you’re doing well, but not quite as well as them.”
As I shared with Keystone this past weekend (LAUNCH TALK #4), that quote sums up my heart for each and every weekend our church. While Muse was playing to more people than ever, with the greatest technology and toys that money could buy… they still knew that they were not the biggest name in the room. Everyone was there to see U2, and MUSE was but the opening act.
So are we at Keystone Church. JESUS IS THE BIGGEST NAME IN THE ROOM!!! Everything we bring on a given weekend is designed to LEAD EVERYONE to experience a PASSIONATE life in CHRIST! We stand on HIS stage. We lead people to HIM. This fires me up!!!
As we LAUNCH together as a church, let’s remember that it is all fueled by the unwavering vision to share JESUS with EVERYONE. As he increases our influence & opportunity, it MUST ALWAYS be ‘jet fuel’ FOR JESUS!
