From Here To There
Jesus said, “I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.” From those words, we get our marching orders to pursue being fully alive in Jesus. But how do we get there? There are six key components every Christian encounters on the path to being fully alive in Jesus. Without any one of these, the mission falters. The follower of Jesus needs to worship, grow, connect, serve, influence, and share. In this series we will do some healthy analysis and, in combination with Biblical teaching, provide the necessary resources for further growth, with the goal of worshiping authentically, growing intentionally, connecting regularly, serving faithfully, influencing purposefully, and sharing generously.
If you had to give your Christian life a grade, what would it be? In what parts of your walk with God are you doing well? Where are you struggling? There are six components to the Christian life which, when nurtured and strengthened, take us down a discipleship pathway to fullness of life in Jesus. As we explore these, we will be encouraged, equipped, and empowered to be Spirit-led champions.
Acts 2:41-47 41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
