Too often we are more like a pile of bricks than a wall that is made up of bricks that are properly placed and lining up with one another.
My special role in the body of Christ is to help connect 'bricks' in the 'wall' that God is building. I have been working at this for many years. At first I thought that if we simply give believers the opportunity to extend God's Kingdom, they would be able to do it. I found that many believers don't really understand what their place is in the 'wall' or the body. Many do not have know how to join properly and productively to other believers. And so, we remain a pile of bricks instead of the wall that God intends.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Last year, a group of about 40 believers pioneered a new way to relate. The entire group is called 'The Vine'. We met in small groups: over lunch, over coffee, etc., weekly with one simple focus. Our focus was to connect...
...to each other
...to his Purpose for us.
And, this is what we found. Direction, purposes, calling and fruit. We tracked what God was telling us to do.
We are in days that are very critical to the overall plan of God.
It is critical that we take a deliberate approach to find and fulfill our calling - our individual and collective calling.
