Our theme for this year is stretch. What will you see in people who are stretching towards their goal? Paul talks about this in Phil 3:12-14. His singular commitment, and focus was to obtain the prize for which God has called him heavenward in Christ Jesus. He was moving in a direction towards manifesting the goodness of heaven here on earth!
What is the evidence that a person is manifesting the goodness of heaven here on earth? I believe you will see the qualities of Jesus Christ magnified in them! We choose to describe such people as those who understand, embrace and embody our acronym SHIELD-
Spirit Empowered Living
Humility and Service
Integrity and Accountability
Equipping all Believers for Service
Love-the unconditional kind of love
Doers of the Word
Can you imagine what it will feel to be around such kinds of people?
Please join on the journey to stretch towards our goal- to understand, embrace and embody our acronym SHIELD. I am eagerly waiting to hear the testimonies of our experiences as we undertake this journey together!
