OneEighty

1My son, do not forget my teaching,

but keep my commands in your heart,

2for they will prolong your life many years

and bring you peace and prosperity.

3Let love and faithfulness never leave you;

bind them around your neck,

write them on the tablet of your heart.

4Then you will win favor and a good name

in the sight of God and man.

5Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

6in all your ways submit to him,

and he will make your paths straight.a

Last night we had the pleasure of attending the annual OneEighty fundraiser for the first time. On our first visit to the Quad Cities back in January, I heard bits and pieces about Rusty and how the ministry got started. I knew a little bit about what they do. Many of our new friends at Calvary are involved at some level. When they tell the stories, they get tears in their eyes.

Last night felt much like my first international mission trip. I went with an idea of what it was all about, and returned completely blown away by God.

There’s undeniable fruit that comes from faithfulness, and real life change happening in people and the community here. God’s favor, raining down.

I wish you could all have been there to hear the testimonies. And the numbers don’t lie. This ministry is exploding and people get it. It was a packed house last night, nearly 1400 in attendance with only a few empty seats scattered about.

I’d like to think that other ministries could take the OneEighty model and effect the same kind of impact in their cities. With love and faithfulness bound around their necks, and written on their hearts.
