The Church looks different all over the planet. People look different, speak different languages, have different cultures and personalities, but the one thing that unites us all is Jesus.
Jesus is the head of the Church. It is through what He accomplished on the cross, His death and resurrection, that people are welcomed into God’s family–the Church.
I love what the Church can do in a person’s life. I love that God wants to reach the world with His message of hope and love and salvation through Jesus and He wants to do it through the Church.
We all need to be joined to an authentic community of believers–a local church. Both giving and receiving the love, support, service, and community that every person on the planet so desperately needs.
We have been uniquely created by God. He knows us intimately. He has wired us to dream and be passionate about the very things He has purposed for our lives; everyone of us has a purpose.
Ultimately, that purpose is to serve the Church–God’s people. Our gifts, dreams, etc. will find full expression in the Church.
This blog is about the Church–how we live and breathe and relate to the world in respect to Who our Great God is.
For in him we live and move and have our being, Act 17:28(a).
We will talk about what motivates, what frustrates, what brings us down, and what gives us lift. My hope is that people will be moved closer to God, be stretched in thinking and faith, that our expectation would grow exponentially, that we would realize just what He wants to do through us…reach the world for HIM.
