Sunday Jan. 30th, 2011 marked the calender with an extraordinary day we will always remember. The expectation and excitement we witnessed through the event, “STRONGER” was completely remarkable. As the count down began to the start of these two profound services, God definitely had a plan to get everyone’s attention.
With expectations high, new faces quickly filled the sanctuary with excitement, and Life Fellowship was definitely hosting a packed house. Families and friend’s from Allen, Mckinney, Anna and beyond; came by invite, or word of mouth to see for themselves what a strong man actually looked like. With the doors of Life Fellowship opened wide to the community, we welcomed people from every walk of life to experience God in a personal way.
So here it was, the moment of truth, could Dennis Rogers really do all he had promised? Was he actually going to be able to execute these tasks? Well he absolutely did! The mind blowing ability to exceed the odds of human limitations were true! Dennis Rogers did indeed perform exceptional feats of strength before our very eyes. From bending frying pans, to quarters, to lifting a refrigerator with one finger, no one doubted his ability was God given. Yet although his abilities were amazing, he proudly gave all praise to God. Dennis Rogers plainly said “My strength is but a gift, just like an artist has the ability to paint, or the talent of a great singer, my gift is strength and it’s for the glory of God.” Although these sights were unbelievable God had something far greater in store for every single person there.
Across the sanctuary from the front to the back, people were identifying with everything Dennis was saying through his performance and testimony – by simply explaining what it truly means to live for God. After Dennis spoke and left to Speak in “One Way” Kid’s Church, Pastor Chris then began to give a profound word himself. He explained that our lives are in need of saving – that God is stronger and able to save, far better than our own countless attempts. That it’s only God who can fulfill.
Though you may have came for a simple performance, you left with a life changing encounter. You may have came feeling weak, empty or purposeless – but you left feeling strong, fulfilled, and ignited with purpose! And It doesn’t matter what we possess, what we do, or where we come from, we all need the amazing grace of God.
So what were people saying about “STRONGER?”
Well Donna Cooper quoted, “It was inspiring, and just shows how God can work in our lives.” And recent attendee Taylor Muse, quoted, “that through the entire performance he was completely in awe of the amazing feats of strength, and that it definitely had to be God.”
So there you have it! God is bigger and greater than all the circumstances of life and with him, you can have the fulfillment and strength to conquer anything! Yet, some were curious if possibly Dennis could pick up a house, well maybe next time!
