We often talk about Jesus giving the great commission or emphasizing the great commandment, but he began his ministry with what we might call the great invitation: "Follow me." And those who followed him became his disciples.
We spend a great amount of time talking about what we believe, but often how we act doesn't reflect what we claim to believe. What might it look like if we lived like we actually believed the things that we say we believe?
The Kingdom of Heaven is something that must be sought. It holds the power to change hearts. Connect with the Kingdom to move your dialogues with others from a sharing of life together toward spiritual forming conversations that point to God, helping others to do Kingdom life in the middle.
Good Work series
Genesis 1:28; 2:15
Your work is more than the task at hand. Your work is an invitation to participate in God's work of cultivating the good earth he has given to us. And that's a high calling.
Matthew 28:16-20 A change in the calendar doesn't mean a change in purpose. In 2018, we're going to fulfill a commission that's been around for thousands of years. We want to make disciples who make disciples.
Exodus 14:5-12, 16:1-3. The temptation to remain comfortable is powerful, especially in our modern world. This can be a dangerous and unhealthy path to fall into, however. God’s call for our lives does not include our comfort, and this thought should guide our approach to beginning another year.
