Rooted — Obedience

Posted by ibckenosha in Rooted

1 Corinthians 15:1-4,58 -- We're made for unity, but so often our identities and our purposes can be separated and at odds.  Our aim, in the midst of all of our core values, should be the gospel of Jesus Christ.  When we lose sight of our identity in Jesus Christ as children of God, it's hard to see others as children of God.  Ministry can become turf, pitting obedience against obedience in disobedience.  If we lose focus and our identity gets pinned to something else other than our chief role of fulfilling the Great Commission, we're in big trouble.  When we all work together using our specific, God-given purposes for our unified, God-given purpose, we accomplish so much more in the power of God.  Our priority must be the good news of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and getting that message out to the world.  -- Tom Dryer
