We must remember our standing in Christ and act out of that standing. But, if we fall and fail, which we will, we simply return to God in repentance and faith. He will then restore us and we will once again experience the joy that is found in Christ.
We must God’s word, the revelation of Christ, a daily part of our lives. We must not only come together and read it, but we must read it individually. And when we do, we must respond to it.
In order to multiply, God’s church needs good soil. That soil is God’s very presence in the church through his Holy Spirit. His presence creates a community that lives out four rhythms: learning to obey God’s word, worshipping God together, living life together, and living dependent upon God.
We are enabled to live lives of worship as we embrace the unique gifts and calling that God has put on our hearts as we have been called to be disciples of Jesus Christ, following him.
