The Door is Open: Outreach

GCC Mission 2020

Jesus was not a casual preacher. His core message was “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is now here.” Repent, you’re heading the wrong direction! Turn around, there’s a better way to live! He taught and He showed people what the way of life looks like. It was great news then and it is incredible news for us today. As believers, we have a similar opportunity to tell and show others what this Kingdom is all about.

From Series: "GCC Mission 2020"

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?
