Passion 2012 – Seeing and Savoring the Supremacy of Jesus by John Piper

Photo via ChristianPost.com

Earlier this year 45,000 college students gathered in Atlanta for Passion 2012. John Piper gave a message with one point: Seeing and savoring the supremacy of Jesus Christ frees you from the slavery of sin for the sacrifices of love.

He unpacks this point by answering four questions: 1) what is seeing and savoring?; 2) what is the supremacy of Christ?; 3) what is freedom from slavery to sin?; and 4) what is freedom for the sacrifices of love?

Louie Giglio and Passion Church

louiegiglio_lg.jpg

From Josh Harris’s blog in 2008:       Today I got a letter in the mail that Louie and Shelley Giglio sent out to friends of Passion. It was a report of all that God has been doing through the Passion World Tour. It sounds like it’s been incredible. But then the letter ended with an announcement that completely shocked me: Louie is planting a church in Atlanta. Here’s what he wrote:

If you haven’t heard by now, Passion is taking a massive turn as we head into the future. At the heart of the shift is a sense of fresh calling that God has made unmistakably clear to Shelley and me over the past eighteen months or so. Though for many reasons it looked like we might never lead a local church, all that has changed as God has placed in our hearts a huge passion to do just that. So in the coming months, by the grace of God, we will be planting a Passion Church in Atlanta as a local expression of the Kingdom of God for our rapidly growing and diverse city as well as a base for our influence throughout the nation and world.

I went online and found a video interview with Louie about his plans. One of the things I’ve always appreciated about Louie is his readiness to listen to the Lord’s leading and do something totally different. Most of the times „totally different” for Louie seems to require bigger faith and bigger risks for God’s glory. But Louie always takes them and never looks back. I pray this new venture will be more God-exalting than anything that has come before. There’s something very cool about the ultimate „conference guy” becoming the pastor of a local church.I’ll be praying for you, Louie.

Louie Giglio Interview: The following is a portion of an interview Louie did with Christianity Today:

Why are you planting a new church in Atlanta?

In my heart something has been changing and turning for about the last five years. Christ died for the local church. While I’ve spoken at many of them, and Passion has influenced them around the world, I want to be able to lay down at the feet of Jesus and say I gave it a shot–I tried to build into the local community of faith that he gave his life for, that he loved, and that he believed is the best agent for change in the world.It’s about a man who wants to be obedient to God. It’s about me, at 50, hearing the voice of God and saying yes, I will follow that.

How have you recruited the staff for your church?

I’ve never recruited one person. Most of the people I know and respect are already involved in local churches. All Shelley and I did was start saying to our friends, „This is what God has done in our hearts. We think we’re crazy, but we feel like we want to pastor a local community of faith with the DNA of Passion.”

Our friends said, „Tell us when and where and we will be there.”

With you as the senior pastor, and Matt Redman and Chris Tomlin leading worship, many have been calling this a „superstar church.” What’s your take on that?

All I say to [criticism] is, well, you’ll have to take that up with God. There is some history on the side of God putting gifted people in the same space at the same time. The purpose is not to congregate ability but to foster a movement that will reach the cities of the nation and the world. History is on our side and Jesus is on our side because he is the one who promised to grow the church. I’m not starting anything. Jesus started the church. This is not going to be Louie’s church. This is Jesus’ church. To the degree that we can let it be his and not ours–then it will be amazing.

What will happen to the Passion conferences? Will they still continue?

Right now we’re going to hold it all together as best we can, by the grace of God. God has given us a platform, a footing with university students that we cannot relinquish. It’s been a gift of God that somehow we have had the favor to gather people and propel them out for God’s kingdom agenda around the world. Passion 2010 will be back in Atlanta. We’re expecting somewhere between 20,000 and 25,000 university students here from around the world.

Right now there isn’t a home, a foundation, for us. We’re excited about a local expression of faith, a local community of believers who have the same DNA as Passion. To be able to go to Stockholm and come home and have home be us is an awesome thought for us. And to be able to launch back to Tokyo and know we have a church community behind us, moving with us–I think it all can happen.

I know you are from Atlanta, but the city has almost 7,000 churches. Did you ever consider another location for your new church?

Atlanta is a city of five million plus people, and it will experience the largest percentage growth of all cities in the United States in the next ten years. To say that Atlanta doesn’t need another church is crazy thinking to me. The church I used to attend (North Point Community Church) has three locations in the city. When they opened Buckhead in its new location, (senior pastor) Andy Stanley said they were getting a lot of flak. But he said the research shows there are 300,000 people who don’t go to anybody’s church on any given Sunday. Andy said that the truth of the matter is, there could be ten more Buckhead churches, and we would still only be scratching the surface.

We said to God, „What do you want to do?” It seemed like God just led us here.

You’ve said Andy Stanley, your pastor, was one of the first to know about your new church. Was he surprised? Was it difficult for him to hear?

He was shocked. Andy was the first person I told, before rumors of this even got to anybody else. I said, „This is what is in my heart.” He looked at me like, „Are you sure you want to do that?”

Andy and I have talked in a lot of detail about what this journey looks like and it’s so amazing. Andy is an incredible leader–the best leader I know. He has been so gracious. I believe North Point will continue to flourish, I believe Passion City Church will flourish, and there will still be hundreds of thousands of people in the city who have not yet encountered the grace of God. We’re going to be friends through the whole process.

Some people ask me, „How could you put a church in Andy’s backyard?” But whose backyard is it? God’s. The church and city don’t belong to Andy or to me or to anybody else.

What would you tell people in Atlanta about attending Passion City Church?

They should go to their own church and serve well in the position that they’re in. I wouldn’t say anything to them about Passion City Church. If they say, „I know about Passion; I’ve been to some of the events and I’ve been waiting for something like this to come along,” then great. How other people find their way to Passion City Church is really about the Holy Spirit.

Will this be a seeker church?

We are not using any kind of descriptive contemporary church adjectives to help us shape what Passion City Church is. When our core team meets, we don’t use the common words that are defining churches. We are looking at the simplicity of the body of Christ and the presence of God.

We’re concerned about whether the presence of God is noticeable and active in our gathering because people don’t need an event, they don’t need a show. People don’t need famous worship leadership. They need a life-changing transaction with their Creator. That’s what people want.

Our church is a church where people have life-changing encounters with God. When you come to Passion City Church, you’ll know that we’re here to exalt God, to paint a picture of him, to be people who are humbled before him, to express him to the city and to the world.

What will be the biggest difference between inspirational conference speaking and preaching on a regular basis?

For me, there’s not a lot of difference. For ten years, in our student ministry at Baylor, I spoke every week. You have to come with something fresh every time. In Atlanta, every Tuesday night I stood in front of young single adults for 11 or 12 years. The speaking is going to be the same, the message is going to be the same. Now I’m back to my 21-year history of getting on my knees, my eyes open, the word of God open.

Passion is geared toward college students, and you’ve said Passion City Church will have the same DNA. Do you expect your parishioners to be largely young adults?

We’re a church for all ages already. Passion isn’t going to be a university church, although there are 160,000 university students in Atlanta and we’d love for them to come.

We’d like to be a church where the people who are 50 always are leaning toward the people who are 18. I know that biblically, it’s our place to lead and their place to respect their elders. But the church grows when we embrace them. I hope it has a youthful vibe.

It seems logical to expect that a church led by a team of Louie Giglio, Matt Redman, and Chris Tomlin will attract a lot of attendees. How will you be sure your congregation is growing spiritually?

The practicality is that it has to be fleshed out in small groups, one-on-one relationships. There isn’t a blueprint yet, but it can absolutely be done. There isn’t a dichotomy between having a big church and a successful community. There are some gigantic churches in the world who are doing an amazing job of fostering community.

It depends on what are you trying to do. Are you are trying to get the most people possible in the church, or trying to get the deepest possible community connection possible? When you read the New Testament, the beginning of the church was explosive. We are all reaching back to the New Testament community. Everybody is talking about Acts 2 church or community as if that wasn’t important five or ten or fifteen years ago, when everybody was talking about how to get the unchurched through the door. We lose the focus when we begin to think first about people.

So we try to first think about God. The Holy Spirit is amazing; he will lead people who are following him to help build community. It’s possible to have an explosive, movement-oriented church that has unbelievable down-deep community. And if I had a blueprint for that right now, I would be writing a book.

We aren’t afraid at Passion City Church of being incredibly large. We’re not intimidated by the thought of, „What if x number of people come?” We’re also not afraid of being incredibly small. We just want to be a place where the presence of God rests and moves out to help this city and the cities of the world.

We have high confidence in God. When you take steps that look a little crazy, he has a way of doing things that blow your mind. We are just trying to position ourselves, to be ready.

Video of the Week – Louie Giglio – Stars and Whales Sing – Stele si Balene Canta (subtitrare in L. Romana))

image dailymail.co.uk

English: Giglio: I don’t know if you know what a mashup is, but I had this idea to make a mashup and I tried to think what would it be like… because we so elevated our songs. But we don’t know the expanse of the worship continually surrounding the throne of God. Listen to Louie Giglio mashing up the sounds of stars and whales (acquired from scientists) in the video below (14 min)

Romanian: Giglio: Muzica noastra e superba, dar, Dumnezeu nu sta doar in cintecele noastre pentru ca El e inconjurat de o simfonie mai mare decit cele mai nebunesti vise ale noastre. Nu stiu daca stiti ce e aia o fuziune/mixaj dar mi-a venit o idee sa fac un mixaj si-am inceput sa ma gindesc cum ar face Dumnezeu lucrurile pentru ca noi ne-am transformat atit de mult modul nostru de a cinta. Dar noi nu cunoastem de loc continua expansiune a cantecelor de care este inconjurat tronul lui Dumnezeu. Ascultati mixajul a stelelor si balenelor (sunetul obtinut de la oameni de stiinta) in video:

Human trafficking at the Indianapolis Superbowl? Some things just can’t be ignored any longer!

I have to admit that had not Louie Giglio focused Passion 2012 around the plight of human trafficking maybe millions of us would be none the wiser today. Did this plight just start recently? Most likely no. So why haven’t we heard of human trafficking before? Maybe because we called it something else, like prostitution and maybe that  has a particular connotation, one that maybe caused us to blame the prostitute, never once giving a thought to the circumstances of how one gets to the point of prostituting herself. Apparently it is not voluntary in many if not most cases. It can’t be voluntary when a 13 or 14 or even older girl or boy is held captive and forced to do it at will. From a very early age, we need to make our children aware of the dangers they face if they were to ever contemplate running away. Yet, besides praying for them, how do you protect your children from abductors who prowl through our towns and cities looking to kidnap children into the sex slave trade? And what must we teach our boys about sexual purity and sexual ethics? Would there be a need for the sex trafficking of children if there was not a demand for them from despicable men? And for such a serious issue as this, do we not need to hold our legislators accountable for passing stiff laws for these abhorrent criminals?

Human trafficking now ranks as one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world, and profits are over $32 billion annually.Read below and be appalled like I am.

from Mission Network News –  a site that usually reports on persecution of Christians outside the borders of the U.S. reports that there are combined efforts to try and stem the deplorable practice of human trafficking that is already underway, including the passing of a new bill for stiff penalties for the traffickers. It turns your stomach at the depravity of the traffickers and the consumers when reading that most of these victims are pre-teens (probably because that is age of most runaways who get coerced into the sex slave trade):

USA (MNN) ― This week is full of sales in the U.S. for chips, soda and household appliances as Americans prepare for the annual football Super Bowl. But other less advertised–and far less innocent–sales are also beginning.

Human lives are for sale at the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl has been called the largest sex trafficking event in the United States. Women, men, boys, and girls are all sold on the underground for the sexual pleasure of fans caught up in football mania, parties, and alcohol. Thousands of girls will be brought into Indianapolis for this single event.

Indiana has responded. Indiana rushed a bill through state legislature to ramp up penalties for sex-traffickers two weeks ago. Hundreds of cab drivers have been trained to know whether or not they are hauling a prostitute, pimp, or john. Catholic nuns have even been making phone calls to all the hotels and motels within a 50-mile radius of Indianapolis to make sure the management knows how to spot trafficking.

Despite any lengths Indiana has gone to, however, girls will still be coerced and kidnapped into the trade because the demand is so high.

Theresa Flores knows all too well what horrors will take place. She was a victim of trafficking for two years as a teenager living in Detroit’s ritzy suburbs.

„You have traffickers that are businessmen and looking for this opportunity and exploiting vulnerable people. So they will be bringing in literally vans full of girls who work. They’ll be putting their pictures up on Backpage and Craigslist, and offering them for sale. They’ll be going to area motels to service these men,” explains Flores. She says most girls will be domestically trafficked runaways–American preteens.

InterVarsity students at the Indiana University/Purdue University commuter campus in Indianapolis are making people aware about this tragic consequence of the Super Bowl. InterVarsity campus leader Bob Shultz says students have decided to hand out fliers and send out anti-trafficking videos in preparation for the event.

It’s a way to follow Christ’s command to care for the least of these, but it’s also a reminder to non-believers about who Christ really is.

„[Advocacy is] something we think that anybody–not just Christians, but people who are exploring the faith–can sink their teeth into and get a taste of what it means to be Kingdom-minded, and to see what Christ does in and through the life of a person,” explains Shultz.

InterVarsity students are excited to raise awareness during this event, but to also use this as a launching pad for a series of anti-slavery campaigns. Students hope to advocate on behalf of victims in multiple ways from now on.

The Super Bowl comes with all sorts of unintended consequences, but thankfully the Lord has the power to take even the world’s darkness and turn it into opportunities for light. Pray for victims of this year’s trade to be brought to safety through the efforts of S.O.A.P. and to experience the peace of Christ.

Pray also for InterVarsity students as they advocate, and for the hearts of those they reach. Pray that their work would have a real impact on the sex trade, helping to abolish it for good in the future.

You can get involved yourself through prayer, advocacy and even financial support. Partner with S.O.A.P. at future events when you visit www.traffickfree.com. Read the entire article here.
