REACH UP“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength ... Luke 10:27 NASB
Jesus paid a significant price to establish a relationship with each one of us. He gave His all so that we can relate to Father God. Will we give our all in return?
The Gathering and Core Group (coming soon) meetings provide a relaxed atmosphere encouraging participation in REACHing up and exchanging all of us for all of Him. This includes passionate worship, fervent prayer, and zealous devotion to the Living Word and the written word (scripture) that is uniquely expressed in each individual.
...'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:39 NASB
REACHing in is a process of transferring "head" knowledge (cognitive) to "heart" knowledge (ownership) of God's great love for us (our value) and what He says about us (our identity) through the Living Word and the written word (scripture). Then we can begin to truly love ourselves. This is the key to unlocking a greater level of experiencing the living God.
The Gathering and Core Group (coming soon) meetings provide a safe environment where the process isn't forced. It is encouraged with the understanding that each individual is responsible to invite Holy Spirit to bring revelation.
This step in the process is vital. We can only love our neighbor as we love ourself.
‘...You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’Matthew 22:39 NASB
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
REACHIng out becomes natural once we REACH up and REACH in. When we know the love of God for us, who He is, passionately pursue Him, know our value and identity, then our passion for Him flows into all we do. Thus, His presence through us affects our spheres of influence.
The Gathering and Core Group (coming soon) meetings are designed to encourage the progression of being before doing. The Core Groups are encouraged to dream and seek the Lord for how they can "do" inside and outside of their spheres of influence to introduce others to the desire of God to have relationship with them. Thus, introducing others to the same progression of REACH UP, REACH IN and REACH out.
