You don’t want to miss this…

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

Discover God’s Vision For Your Life

You were made for this.

And I heard the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”

ISAIAH 6:8

Do you ever wish you were a part of something more? We all want our lives to be meaningful, but despite our best efforts, it’s easy to feel unfulfilled and unable to make an impact.

What if we could partner with God to live our lives with purpose? What if instead of asking God to do something for us, we asked God to use us?

Asking God for direction can seem daunting, but He is always available to provide direction. One way to discover God’s vision for your life is by deliberately seeking Him every day through His Word.

God created us for community.

Developing Godly Relationships

Love is to be sincere and active … Hate what is evil … hold on tightly to what is good. Be devoted to one another with [authentic] brotherly affection [as members of one family] …

ROMANS 12:9-10

God created us for community. We’re wired for relationships: with our friends, spouse, coworkers, or kids. God intended healthy relationships to be compassionate, sacrificial, honorable, and forgiving. Cultivating those qualities often means surrendering our expectations for our relationships and trusting Him instead.

Live empowered.

The Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.

ROMANS 8:26

What is God doing in you?

Take a moment and think about what God has done in your life recently. Think of the situations He’s helped you endure, the challenges you’ve overcome together, and the victories you’ve experienced because of Him.

No matter your situation or background, when you belong to Christ, His Holy Spirit is with you at all times, empowering and strengthening you. There is nothing that God cannot do through you when His Holy Spirit lives within you.

Right now, ask God to show you how His Holy Spirit is at work in your life. Here are some Plans that can help you get started:
