When you are connected to God, rivers of living water will flow from you!
Still and unmoved, it nourishes what's nearby. But when it flows, it reaches far and sustains those beyond us; much like the love God has placed in us.
We live in an imperfect world with broken people serving a perfect God whose unconventional love puts us in line with suffering.
But in this act, He blesses us with the gift of thriving in adversity; so that we continue to shine through darkness, bringing light to all those around us.
While clothes we put on every morning tell a story about who we are and send a message on how we think, even more important is what we wear within. Let is be the garment of praise that God has prepared for us, His children; let us don the love of Christ that builds us, that we may build others too.
When we embarked on a futurist's journey last year, our goals were set on building a sustainable church of the future. This year, our eyes remain on that goal, but with an urgency driven by God's most powerful gift-love.
