Monday Kfirst Kickstart: “Connect the Disconnect” #IAmChurch

I love our church. In fact, I think that you love our church too – otherwise you wouldn’t be here. But what is it exactly that we love about our church community? Why do we gather every Sunday here? Why do we volunteer here? Why don’t we see the people, not the building, as the church? We believe when the Church is working right, there is nothing like it. The Church is not an organization. It’s an organism designed to live, move, and have being. January is all about celebrating what Christ established. In Matthew 16, Jesus gave us this promise that He would build His Church, and that nothing could prevail against it. So, we don’t just attend a church and we don’t just tolerate the Church — we celebrate it, because we are part of that Church that Jesus is building! This month, we celebrate everything that God has done, while looking forward to the future. We have a rich history here at Kfirst, but we believe that the best is yet to come.

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • You cannot become “you” by yourself. There are parts of your destiny that cannot be developed without community.
  • May we the Church be quicker to see the commonality in Christ amongst each other before we take notice and voice what we don’t like or agree with about each other.
  • We should have nothing to offer the world that we are unwilling to practice in the Church.
  • There’s no such thing as an “only child” in the family of Christ.
  • When you say yes to Jesus, you’re saying yes to family.

Love you all!  See you this Sunday!

BTW: Here’s a great song for the week…

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • Salvation happens in an instant; transformation happens over time.
  • Resistance lives on the border of breakthrough.
  • I’ve learned that most breakthrough with God doesn’t happen till something has broken down within me.
  • If you see yourself in a state of constant growth, we will see a greater need for discipleship.
  • I am not all that I want to be, but I am not at all what I used to be.
  • The breakthrough you hope for, the victory you yearn for, the dream you work for might be one decision away. The decision is to MOVE FORWARD.

Love you all!  See you this Sunday!

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • The decisions we make today will determine the stories we tell about our lives tomorrow.
  • “Every decision matters. Decisions determine direction and direction determines destination.” Herbert Cooper
  • A fruitful life isn’t based on a few big decisions, but thousands of “normal” decisions during “normal” times.
  • Tomorrows fruitfulness is seeded in todays faithfulness.
  • When making daily decisions ask, “What would honor God the most?”
  • Don’t allow your feelings to occupy the throne of your decisions.

Love you all!  See you this Sunday!

Monday Kfirst Kickstart: “4 Cups” #TheTable

Symbols are common in the Christian’s world.

A crown – royalty; victory
A dove – peace; the Holy Spirit
A door – opportunity or closure
Fire – glory of God; Holy Spirit
A cross – love, hope, redemption

But there is an overlooked symbol taken for granted that is needed more than ever in our world: The Table.

What we find in most ordinary homes was a place of extraordinary opportunities. This often unnoticed instrument of intimacy is where bread was broken, hearts opened, and lives shared. The table made outsiders friends. The table healed family fracture. The table is where the empty was filled.And the table is what Jesus invites us to partake in, yet, it is His challenge to all of us to take into the world around us.

In December, we return to a familiar topic for our church community in a new teaching series called, “Remember the Table.” Together, we partake of the hospitality of Jesus in order that we would go and “do likewise” (Luke 10:37).

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • Hypocrisy is the gap between what show and who we really are.
  • In the presence of every dark moment is the promise of a morning to come.
  • What if we loved people not based upon what they could be but who they are as the imago dei (image of God)?
  • The presence of God’s grace is greater than the power of my failures.
  • Jesus knows everything we will ever do, and He still invites us to his table.

Love you all!  See you this Sunday!

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • “Few acts are more expressive of companionship than the shared meal…someone with whom we share food is likely to be our friend, or well on the way to becoming one.” – Carolyn Steel
  • The gospel was never meant to sedate us but to activate us in abundant life in this world.
  • Nothing more than Jesus is required; nothing less than Jesus will do.
  • When you serve others, God changes lives—and the first life He often changes is yours.

Love you all!  See you this Sunday!

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • “A shared meal is the world’s oldest social network.” – Dr. Caroline Leaf
  • Jesus interrupts what we are about to show us what He is about.
  • If following Jesus doesn’t cost you anything, you may be more of a fan than a follower.
  • You don’t need to have it all together to be around Jesus.
  • If Jesus wanted you at your worst, why would you conclude that He is growing disinterested in you now?
  • Your life bears fruit, not for yourself, but for others.
  • Your life is a table; a place to invite those who need to partake of Jesus’ love.

Love you all!  See you this Sunday!
