Eddie James was More Then Just a Concert
As soon as I walked into the sanctuary I felt a change in atmosphere. The preparation was already taking place.
of the Eddie James staff started the night with prayer and the crowd began to worship with them, ushering in the presence of the Lord. The night was full of energy and people began to make their way toward the front as worship progressed. Interpretive dances were performed with such emotion that gripped the heart. The crowd was on their feet clapping, dancing and singing praises as the Eddie James team led us in worship with such talented voices and anointed musicians.
About halfway into the evening, a young man from Lincolnton NC (http://www.ci.lincolnton.nc.us/)
I specifically mention these two young men because their story is local.
It’s not just a concert. This man was called by God to reach out to those young people that most had given up on and show them the love of Jesus. A higher hope; a life with purpose. They grow to be a close knit family and through music and dance, give praise to God as they worship Him with all that they have because, for some, He is all that they have.
Near the end of the night an altar call was made and people of all ages answered that call. Hands were raised in complete surrender, hearts were open, people began to pray for each other and God began to move in a mighty way. I have no doubt that someone’s life was changed that night. The night was predestined for that moment. The praise, the worship, the testimonies shared, all of the preparation, the very purpose and calling on Eddie James and his ministry…it was all for that moment, for God’s glory.
