What Is Your GPS?
Do you remember those classes in college or graduate school that were like taking hold of a huge wrench, walking out your front door, finding the nearest fire hydrant, opening it up and taking a blast of water? Well, last Sunday morning we dove into 1 Peter 2:9-10 and saw specifically from verse 9 that we as the church are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that we may proclaim the excellencies of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light. Unbelievably, we are the people of God!
That is enough to hear in and of itself, but as we expounded we noted how important worship is and that it is at the center of our calling as proclaimers. Finally, we overviewed the CCCF Strategic Ministry Growth Plan for 2018. Perhaps you felt like you were taking a big blast out of a fire hydrant!
Over the next weeks and months we will be taking in smaller sips as we highlight various aspects and understand more about our calling as Christ Community Church in Frisco and getting our bearings, our GPS. What is our GPS? To review, as God’s chosen people saved by grace in Christ Jesus we are to be about:
- Our Gospel Mission - Proclaiming the gospel locally where we live, work and play.
- Our Pathway to Gospel Community – connecting in Connect Groups, YACC, Sunday School or Bible studies for our growth and for ministry.
- Our Seeking to Extend Gospel Deeds Of Love through mercy, justice and cultural impact for gospel love and proclamation.
You can read more detail about these strategies HERE.
You may be wondering, “Where do I begin?” You begin with “G.” It is the first letter of our position as our text in 1 Peter and all of Scripture points to. It is also the supporting letter to keep us on path and seeking. It is the gospel; Jesus is the gospel. God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Rom 5:8).
