Monday Kfirst Kickstart: #MYCHURCH week 4 “Product Placement”

Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday and in the wake of a great weekend and a workweek ahead, sometimes you just need a “kickstart” to get focused.  So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together.

January is about “newness.” Whether we are talking about a new start, new life, new opportunities, or just new vision, a new year naturally directs our focus forward into endless possibilities.

And its every January where we celebrate the newness of what God has in store for Kfirst  community as we kickoff our annual #MYCHURCH series. (Click here for yesterday’s notes.)

Yesterday, we looked ended our series with a message called, “Product Placement.” We, ourselves, have the amazing opportunity to be “product placement” in our communities of the Kingdom of God. People can, and should, see Christ in us, the hope of glory.

We spent our entire service in Colossians 1:21-29 as we answered 4 questions about Kfirst and gave simple answers:

  1. What are we doing? (v. 22-23, 28)
    • We proclaim Jesus. As much as there are a variety of ways to proclaim Christ, we believe the easiest way is to share your story.
  2. Why do we do it? (v. 28-29)
    • We love people. And our love is not based upon any conditions. God loves us with an unconditional love and we need to model that.
  3. How will we do it? (v. 23-24)
    • We (KFIRST) will work hard, rely on God, and stay humble in helping people become “steadfast and stable, not shifting” in their relationship with God. So we introduced two huge changes:
      • 1 – Discipleship Pillers
        • Prayer, Bible, Identity in Jesus, Stewardship
      • 2 – Kingdom Builders
        • We’re shifting the support for our missionaries to our general fund as we “tithe” off of it to missions. Then we’re starting a new offering fund called “Kingdom Builders” to help facilitate missional opportunities in our community.
  4. Who are we? (v. 21-23)
    • We are a church that is a part of The Church. And we walk as those reconciled, blameless, and above reproach so that others can see and experience the Kingdom of God.

This week, what can you do to display the Kingdom of God in the sphere of influence that God has placed you? Spend some time each morning asking the Holy Spirit to help you express that unconditional love to someone in your life.

Love you all. We’ll see you next Sunday as we kick off a new series, “Kingdom Builders.”

BTW: Here’s a song for your weekly playlist:
