We seek to become a people who are living examples who have found the answers to life’s fundamental questions and problems. We seek to be a place where people who are searching for answers feel safe, welcomed, listened to. We seek experiences of knowing that God is real and wants you to feel His love in this broken world. God wants us to trust Him. God wants to help us to know He is loving us. He is eager to answer your prayers. Experiences with the hope, joy, and peace of God need to be recorded in the spaces of your life. “Recall the marvelous deeds of the Lord.” Transformation stories, enablement stories, revelation stories. Tell them!! Write them down so they don’t disappear. When Gideon faced an enemy of 135,000, God diminished his army from 32,000 to 300!! He wanted Israel to know that God would save them. God works this way in our lives. To trust Him. To declare He is with us. To proclaim His victory in our lives. What do you do when God asks you to trust Him? Do you answer, “You’ve got to be kidding!”
Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who call down curses on you. And pray for those who treat you badly…But love your enemies. Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then you will receive a lot in return. And you will be children of the Most High God.
