AT CURRENT WE ARE IN FULL PURSUIT OF JESUS
Jesus called His disciples to be moved and He’s calling us to do the same. He invites us to move out of our comfort zones, routines, and even out of our own lives, to follow Him. He gives us the option to trade our priorities, agendas, and goals for His life-changing mission. It’s the adventure of a lifetime.
At Current, we are in full pursuit of Jesus. Some of us have been following for years, some have partially followed at a distance, and some are just beginning. Regardless, we can all move closer to the Lord. Following Jesus is an everyday adventure. Will you be moved to follow Jesus fully and to follow Him closer than ever before?
You can’t stay the same and expect to grow. To grow is to transform. God will change us into who He wants us to be if we’re willing to be shaped by Him.
Taking time to worship God or talk with Him in prayer are great ways to grow closer to God. But reading God’s Word and applying it…
…to our lives are, without question, the best way to grow deeper in our faith. Hebrews 4:12 explains, “… the word of God is alive and active… it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” The Bible is powerful and its truth can change us from the inside out.
Consistently gathering with the rest of the church family to worship God and hear a message from the Bible is a great place to start, but it’s far from the end of the journey. Developing a habit of reading God’s Word daily and studying God’s Word with others in a Life Group or Bible Study allows God to shape us.
Growing deeper happens when we are intentional about applying God’s Word to our lives. We are reminded that reading the Bible or just knowing the truth isn’t enough. “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” James 1:22
The grace of God leaves you speechless and then it turns you into someone who can’t stop talking about Jesus.
Simply believing is not the end—we must live what we say we believe. Our walk with God really comes alive when we share what He…
Christians are often told to “share their faith.” This is a challenge for most of us. We are often so busy just living life that it’s difficult to find time to be intentional about sharing our faith with someone – not to mention, this approach can feel a little forced. Perhaps instead of living our lives and trying to share our faith, we should SHARE OUR LIVES with others and, in the process, simply LIVE OUT OUR FAITH.
Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 2:8: “…Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.”
At Current, we believe a person’s walk with Jesus shouldn’t be a secret. Jesus changes everything, including how we live our lives from day to day. Those around us should be able to see a difference in us. Not only should they see the transformation Jesus brings to our lives, but we should be more than willing to speak His name, to pray for others, to serve others and to share His truth and grace.
When you view church as something you attend for an hour a week, you tend to be focused on how that church is serving you. But if you are a Christian, you don’t go “to” church, you actually “are” the church. You become part of the body of believers, part of the body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:27 explains that every Christian is part of the body of Christ “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”
When those who make up the church body aren’t serving, it’s like a part of a person’s physical body is not functioning. In most churches, only a fraction of the church is serving. What condition would a person be in if only a small percentage, say 30%, of his/her physical body was functioning?
Don’t fill your life with things, but with generosity toward God and others. Have stories of God’s goodness and provision to tell – not stuff to show.
The more we understand and experience the love of God, the more generous we become.
The more we give to God’s work and to those in need, the more we grow in our relationship with the Lord. Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:21) In other words, wherever you spend or invest your money, your heart will follow. If you want to deepen your heart for God, give to God’s work.
