Whew! What a great weekend we had in Seattle!

November 8th, 2010 Posted in sermons

On Sunday night, the final evening of our Seattle Harvest, many hurting hearts were infused with the hope that “does not disappoint” when they surrendered their pain, their grief, and their hurt to Jesus Christ.

In addition to fantastic music by MercyMe, Jars of Clay, and the Katinas, the crowd heard the testimony of special guest Nick Vujicic, who was born with no arms or legs. I gave a message entitled, “Hope for Hurting Hearts.” The theme of hope was woven through the entire night, culminating in the invitation to receive God’s gift of eternal life.

With 15,000 in attendance at the venue, and over 93,300 watching the event online, 1,692 accepted that invitation on Sunday night.

That brings the weekend totals to:

* 39,200 attendance
* 162,717 webcast
* 4,225 decisions for Christ

Praise God for what He has done in Seattle!

But this is not the end. In fact, for those 4,225 who registered decisions for Christ, this is just the beginning. Please join us in praying for these who made commitments and recommitments, that they would “walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:10).

    This was a beautiful event. Thank you Greg for inspiring so many people and bringing them towards God this weekend. I’m from Hawaii so I’m amazed at how many people there are on the mainland — the harvest is plentiful and the workers are a few. Thank you for giving me hope to become a better person and walk stronger in my faith with God. You have helped me to realize that life on this earth is just a “mere breath” and there’s so much more out after this time, heaven. This event was a success and I wish you best of luck in the future.
