Lead the Way; Invite all People; Believe for the Future; Equip the Saints
Last week, we talked about the need to be connected with other people, this week we will talk about how we should relate to one another/treat one another in these relationships that we are making.
Let’s set the foundation for this week on the three following scriptures.
Genesis 12:1-3 NLT
The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. 3 I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”
Colossians 3:10-11 NLT
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. 11 In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us.
Galatians 3:27-29 NLT
And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on the character of Christ, like putting on new clothes. 28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.
In other words:
If you are a part of Connecting People to LIFE, then you desire to treat others the way they should be treated, because you’ve been treated, by God, the way you should have been treated, long before you deserved being treated that way.
LIFE VISION: “WE DESIRE TO BLESS OTHERS BECAUSE GOD FIRST BLESSED US.”
Spend some time today asking God to show you how to bless others through your life. Regardless of where you are at today. Adopting the mindset – blessing others because we have been so greatly blessed.
