To Rally Around Jesus and Live Like Him
We LIVE LIKE...
We Rally Around Jesus | "In this new life, it doesn't matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us." (Colossians 3:11 NLT)
We Live Jesus-centered Lives // Together we Pray // Gather to Worship // Believe the truths from God's word
We Have Strength in Commununity | "And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." (Hebrews 10:24-45 NIV)
we pray for one another // Serve one another // Share goods and experiences // Learn from one another
We Are Creative in our Context |"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." (Ephesians 2:10 ESV)
We welcome new ideas // Dream God-sized Dreams // Be resourceful // Always ask "Is there a more creative way to convey this?"
We Trust the Process | "Then Jesus said, “God’s kingdom is like seed thrown on a field by a man who then goes to bed and forgets about it. The seed sprouts and grows—he has no idea how it happens. The earth does it all without his help: first a green stem of grass, then a bud, then the ripened grain. When the grain is fully formed, he reaps—harvest time!" (Mark 4:26-29 MSG)
Know where you're friend is on their spiritual journey // Be patient and understanding in it // I will put myself in their shoes // When the time is right to make a decision I will help my friend take the next step
Servant Leadership is our Mainstay | "For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Matthew 20:28 NLT)
I must be an encourager // Cultivate Trust // Develop Others // Think you. not me // Act with Humililty
