Welcome To Jumpstart

2011 is here! It’s a new beginning. A fresh start. The reality is, most of us have already made our New Year’s resolutions. We’re going to lose more weight; make more money; buy a gym membership; spend more time with my kids; etc. etc. etc. etc.

While today is a good day — a fresh start — it’s full of a lot of empty commitments built on the wrong foundation. That’s where JUMPSTART comes into play.

You and I want this year to be different. We want real change in our lives. But we need to have a paradigm shift from our typical “resolutions” to something grounded on a commitment that has eternal impact. This year, think about a renewed walk with God. Think about embracing some serious spiritual shock treatment. Think about a “jumpstart”.

Some of the most godly and successful men and women in the Bible started their day with God. It wasn’t an afterthought. It was an essential, non-negotiable in their day. Beginning your day with the Lord means getting your marching orders. It means setting HIS will and HIS plans before YOUR will and YOUR plans. You’ll find that this habit will give you the “jumpstart” — the jolt of energy and strength — you’ve always desired.

Plus, we’re doing this together as a church. Everyday, there will be a passage of scripture to read and a brief commentary from a CPC staff member. Obviously, scripture is the most important aspect. But the commentary will help give some summary thoughts and a “jumpstart” challenge for each day.

If you’ll decide to join us on this journey through the scriptures, stop right now and pray this along with us with an open heart and a renewed desire to be molded by God.

Lord Jesus,

Thank you for today. Thank you for life. Thank you for breath. My heart’s desire this year is to begin each day with a fresh focus on you. By your power and through your spirit, I want to pursue you and experience your presence in my life. I pray that you would give my life the “Jumpstart” that you know it needs.

I lay 2011 at your feet.

  7. It’s difficult to even begin describing my enthusiasm for this. Not only is it a great boost to start off the new year, but it’s such a great motivator to get out of bed and start the day with high spirits.
    Thank you CPC staff! (=

  8. So excited about Jumpstart!! I saw the announcement of Jumpstart on the site New Year’s Eve but did not know what it was. How awesome is this to go along with my goals for a renewed life in Christ this year!! I am pumped for what is in store. Thank you CPC Staff for making the commitment to make this possible for all. Happy Jumpstart Day 1!!!!

  9. I’ve “jumped”. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us thru this journey. Praise God – yesterday when Tim asked us what our goal for the new year was my son took my hands in his, looked me in the eyes and said “I want to know God more”. What a start to the new year!!! I’m glad to be part of the CPC family.

  10. What an exciting time with God this morning! His word, His Spirit has led me all over the place this morning. In reading, Genesis 1, I moved to Job 33:4, “The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” Then after much reading and meditating on His word, I moved to songs that really speak to the heart. First, Fairest Lord Jesus! Ruler of all Nature; Thee Will I Cherish, Thee will I Honor, Thou, My Soul’s Glory, Joy and Crown. Then, to HOLY HOLY HOLY! Lord God Almighty. Early in the morning my song shall rise to Thee. Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty, God in three persons, Blessed Trinity. And to set the heart for the day, What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear, what a privilege to carry everything to God in Prayer. And, I’ll cherish the old rugged cross, till my trophies at last I lay day, I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it some day for a crown. Then, sings my soul, my Savior God to the Thee, How Great Thou Art, How Great Thou Art, then sings my soul, my Savior God to the Thee, How Great Thou Art, How Great Thou Art!!! May God Bless you!!!

  11. I’ve been waiting for this for sooo long. I haven’t found a Bible Study class that offers the reading of the Bible. This is the Best news I’ve received this year…ever. 🙂
