This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to Him. -
The "meaning of life" – why are we here? This question has been asked by millions of people over thousands of years. The innate need to know seems to be programmed into our very being. Christians believe God created us with this desire, which then drives us to discover the purpose He has planned for us. Perhaps finding "the answer" is not really the answer. Could "meaning" come from the seeking; communing with God, connecting with others, living an abundant life through serving both in this world? Seek the purpose God has for you and find joy in the journey!
As it was in the beginning of the Christian Church, so it is still true today – so much to do, not enough workers to meet the need. Our community is like a field ready for harvest. God has planted His seeds in hearts all around us. We are called to do our part in helping them find a place to experience God’s love, to know Him better, and to belong in a family of believers. Each of us has been gifted with abilities, both great and small, that God can use to grow His Kingdom. Preparing our fellowship to receive them, putting workers in place to serve them, is part of our worship – our “reasonable service,” our “living sacrifice” (Romans 12:1) unto the Lord. The fields are ready. Let’s go to work!
Back to Church Sunday is September 17. CBF is having a special service specifically designed to welcome people back to church, so now is a good time to start praying about who you will invite. Eight out of ten people say they are open to visiting church if invited. That’s powerful! Imagine how our community can be transformed if everyone invited at least one person to come to church.
We’ll have a relevant message on this Sunday called “A Place to Belong,” that will encourage all of us to get plugged in to living life the way we were meant to—with others in authentic community. You won’t want to miss it! We’ll also have an event immediately following our service to help visitors and members get to know each other. There’s something for everyone in the Body of Christ.
This is the perfect opportunity to invite your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers to join you and grow deeper in their faith, or perhaps encounter God for the first time.
I’m not asking You to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by Your truth; teach them Your Word, which is truth. -
