Many believers tend to think that Christianity is all about not sinning and acting as perfect as possible in order to dodge God’s judgement and wrath. Others tend to try to follow God and Jesus in the hopes of getting “stuff” (aka blessings) in exchange for their good behavior.
But when we look at the teachings of Jesus Christ, we realize neither of those are the truth at all! Too many overlook the fact that the entirety of the Christian life revolves around our relationship with God. How well do you know God? When was the last time you talked to Him in prayer? Took a walk with Him while meditating on his Word? Shared your worries and fears and thanks with Him or took the time to really listen to His still, small voice?
Eternal life isn’t about getting to heaven. It’s instead grounded on understanding who God is in this life and developing an intimate, evolving connection with the divine through Christ. Through this powerful 6-week series, your community will rediscover the true focus of the Christian faith—to restore ourselves to God and nurture a growing relationship with Him—while learning to better hear His Word, serve His people, walk in His will, and share His Gospel. Prepare to guide your congregation into a deeper truth of who their Lord and Savior is and how He wants to relate to them.
