Vision: LCC empowers people to become, think, and live as the Body of Christ
in the community and throughout the world. (1 Cor. 12:27-28)
Kyla and I are in Michigan enjoying a bit of R&R and so far it has been an eat fest and fun times with family. This week we traveled north to Mackinac Island and the Soo Locks (in the Upper Peninsula). Both were amazing but both got me to thinking about how as humans we have a longing and desire to control and restrain the power and move of God.
Why do we need to answer all of life’s difficult questions? Why do we need to control God’s flowing waters? Well the answer that came to me was we want to be gods. We want to create, control, and conquer.
As we embark on this next phase of ministry and life, I am hoping that we don’t get so creative that we take away the power of God to build a people. Romans 3:4 screams in my ears, “Let God be true, and every man a liar.”
As the Body of Christ this should be our life’s banner. God is truth. God is life. God is right.
This is how we see our ministry being formed on God’s truths, not mans designs and tricks. God’s truth is John 3:16, salvation and empowerment for ALL who believe.
How awesome will it be when we develop a strong team of believers to operate with John 3:16 as the foundation of faith, operating as the Body of Christ in the world. This focus is not based on sustaining a system, but rather developing an exponential movement.
This is the ministry the people of God have been called to and this is the path we have chosen to take. This October we will call the people of Indianapolis to join us as we serve with the hurting, the downtrodden, the marginal, the homeless, the misfits.
This next two months we will need your help. Through prayer and faith we will begin a two month campaign to connect with 1,000 people. How will we do this? We will do this only with your help. I will share more later.
For now reread John 3:16 and ask God how this message can be played out in your life. It is a radical verse that calls us to radical action. Will you be one of the 1,000?
Let’s Get It!!!
