OK y’all: you only have 1 page to read today.
But, let me tell ya – it’s such a great page!
The vision for Austin New Church (the church Jen and her husband founded as part of God interrupting their life) is described in today’s reading.
What words or phrases stick out to you? Here’s mine:
values biblical teaching
relevant; transcends time and culture
oppressed, abandoned, helpless
spiritual, relational, emotional and physical need
responsibility to lead
driven by God’s vision for unity
partnering across denominations
share the good news of Jesus Christ
regardless of social status, ethnicity, or faith background
build honest and encouraging relationships
speak, share, and seek to live out God’s truth
What if WE did this? What if each one of us in this study could start a fire in our own churches? What if the revival begins with us? Imagine the impact we could have if we start living our lives like this and it begins to overflow into our families, our churches, our communities. Grab an oar.
I want to be clear: no church is perfect, not even Austin New Church. And if you are searching for the perfect church, you won’t find it this side of heaven.
Lord, let this start with me. Help me to wake up each morning with a fresh vision for impacting Your kingdom.
How about you? What stuck out in the vision to you? What do you want to be part of?
Guess what? We actually start Part One of the book tomorrow – wooohooo! 🙂
