Do you remember going to church camp, youth conferences, or maybe even worship services that helped you think and desire to act more urgently for God?
I think that experiences like this have come to me in mission trips, internships, college coursework, and conferences (hosted by organizations like Campus Crusade for Christ, and The Justice Conference) that I have attended.
The reminders for me are reinforced even more when I am able to share principles of how God has wired me to work in spreading the Gospel and growing in my own relationship to God and others. In this post I want to share a few overarching principles that I want to really live out. Like I have asked before, please pray for me to listen to God for refining these points and taking the divine appointments he gives me to be an agent of change and reconciliation.
I believe a few of the purposes that God has put on my heart have to do with:
Connecting the local church with serving their neighbors;
Helping people come to Christ-centered holistic wellness in all parts of their lives (social, physical, emotional, cognitive, finances, and spirituality);
Facilitating people’s experiences to worship the Triune God in Spirit and in truth;
Teach God’s word;
and engaging people with other religious, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds in constructive and humble relationships.
Over the next few days, weeks, and months I want to share how God is leading me to do these things and the impact that Trinitarian theology has had on how I minister and relate to others in my church, community, and world. Would you be willing to share what you think (or at least one thing)God has wired you for?
