Jesus went places His followers wanted to avoid. In our communities, our workplaces, our schools, our homes, the call to "Merge" is an invitation to discover purpose and experience God's love.
Everything begins and ends with Scripture.
//2 Timothy 3:16//
We are created for relationships. Us to God. Us to others. Better together. Learning how to love God. Learning how to love our neighbor. There's no such thing as a "Lone Ranger" Christian. Coming Together is the Merge way.
//2 John 3:16//
Spiritual contributors, not just spiritual consumers. Our passions and abilities are God's gift to us. What we do with it is our gift to God. Innovation. Creativity. Joy. Expression. We are invited to collaborate with God, to "participate in His divine nature!"
"A cheerful heart is good medicine". Serving God is fun, and sharing life with others is awesome! Sure, life hands out some bumps and bruises, but laughter is simply the result of experiencing God's love and building healthy relationships!
We serve the God of immeasurably more and when we place our faith in Him, He expands our hearts to help others. At the same time, before we have a vision for thousands, let's have a passion for one.
Every word. Every action. And not just the ones on stage. When our hearts are centered on Jesus and focused on others, our words and actions will minister to others, both seen and unseen. Everything is ministry from what happens in the parking lot to what occurs on stage.
//1 Peter 4:10//
