GCC Mission 2020

God created and loves ALL people, showing no favoritism. He loves all races, all cultures, all ages, in all walks of life; therefore, we show compassion to all people, honoring each as created in His image. This week ,we will highlight Grace Covenant's value of “Impartiality”. We'll see what instruction and inspiration the Bible gives us on being more like Jesus in this regard.

In a culture where we can (more than) easily buy in bulk, super-size our food orders, get a cup of caffeine every few blocks at a coffee shop, upgrade our technological devices to the "bigger & better" versions, add 50 more channels to the 180 that we already get with cable TV or binge watch 45 episodes of a series on Netflix, we are full. We like having enough; we like having plenty. We like being full. Fasting - "giving up food (or something else) for a period of time in order to focus your thoughts on God". Reading that can cause a variety of thoughts: 1) "Huh? Why would I do that?"; 2) "Will God love me more if I fast?"; 3) "Is that what I need to do in order to get my prayers answered?"; 4) "Ugh - that means going hungry and being miserable. No. Thank. You." Being full vs. being hungry? Pretty sure we'd all chose the former. Being full of God and more hungry for Him? Is there even a better option?
