FLOURISH THROUGH GRACE:|
By daily turning to Jesus through
faith and turning from your sin, you grow and flourish. He has told us
"to grow in the grace and the knowledge of Him."12 This isn’t about
completing a checklist of religious activity, but rather growing in a
relationship formed by God’s merciful grace towards you. As in any
relationship, it takes time and communication to know God: time
reading His book (the Bible), regularly talking to Him (prayer) and
worshipping and serving Him with others in the Church. As we grow
in our understanding of God’s grace upon us, our lives will flourish.
FLOURISH FOR THE GREATEST CAUSE:
There is a yearning
within all of us to live for a cause greater than ourselves. People all
over the world give of their time and money for causes in which they
believe will make some aspect of the world better. But, God has
given us the greatest cause of all by taking the message of forgiveness
and rescue through Jesus Christ to those around us. God
intends for our words, actions, and motivations to serve and point
others to the glorious reality of all Jesus has done and is doing.
And, what will the future hold?
