Our Focus for 2018
The theme we’ll be focusing on this year is BEcoming Like Jesus: Bearing the Fruit of the Spirit. Jesus taught, “It is enough for the disciple that he become as his teacher...” (Matt 10:25).
Becoming more like Jesus is not merely something we learn about, it’s someone we are. While we cannot become more like Jesus without reading and learning the Bible, that learning is not an end unto itself—rather it is a means to transformation. What we know must activate how we live. The purpose of our reading and studying is that we take what we’ve learned and live it—becoming more and more like Jesus. The fruit of the Spirit describes what God “does.” It is a description of the attributes and activities of God. We can know we’re more like God when we bear the fruit that God bears.
Through the preaching this year we’ll be focusing on the “BE” in becoming like Jesus. To be more like Jesus is to be who Jesus is. Thus our emphasis will be on bearing the fruit of the Spirit in our daily lives. We hope this theme will be a blessing to you, and help encourage not only our congregational growth, but also your personal growth with your Lord. Let’s all do our part this year to become more like Jesus!
