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.
Sunday, we kicked off a new series “I Am Church” at Kfirst. In this new series of talks, we are emphasizing the mindset that we don’t go to church; we are the church. And this series, we’ll be diving into the book of Acts and looking at some of the fundamental elements of the early church.
Week 1 was a special morning as we turned our attention to Acts 2 and the two intangible elements saturated in this new church.
Grace and Growth.
They responded to the grace by saying “yes” to Jesus. They began to grow by continuing to say “yes” to the direction of God.
In Acts 2, both elements are not just inseparable, but they propel each other. And that’s what sends us into the “cycle of grace and growth.” What is the “Cycle of Grace and Growth”? It’s when you get who you are, what God has done, and what you can become in Him. You see His grace and allow it to propel you to growth. But to grow, you have to lean upon His grace. One feeds the other. The more I say yes, the more I grow. And the more I grow the more I realize I need His grace to accomplish it.
Have you said “yes” to the grace of God?
Have you grown by continuing to say yes to the next steps the Holy Spirit has shown you?
This month, we’re asking Kfirst to dive into the book of Acts and use S.O.A.P. (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer). If you need a reading plan, click HERE for one on youversion.
Read it daily. In fact, find someone to meet with once a week to talk and pray about it. And when you pray, would you make your prayer,
“Jesus, do this IN me, start with me.”
Love you all. Have an amazing week.
BTW: This is the song we introduced yesterday.
