A Call to Arms

A Call to Arms

In 2017 this challenge was put before us from our CrossLife Elders – A call to re-engage with our First Love… The challenge still stands…

… desiring God, declaring Jesus, developing communities …

Let us affirm our first love and follow Jesus and bow before Him.

Let us take up arms in the battle for the hearts and souls of those on the northern Gold Coast.

Let us pray and ask God to give us the courage to finish the race He has given us, and persevere in all the challenges it holds.

Let us thank God for the great results of his Spirit’s work as people meet Jesus and keep following Him from any age.

Let us commit ourselves in increasing sacrificial generosity to give our time, our passion, our money, and our skills to Gods kingdom.

Let us affirm all we have is not ours, but His, and we are but stewards to use them as He would direct.

Let us affirm again our commitment to all the Lord God has before us and keep at it, not losing heart, just as our King and friend the Lord Jesus did before us,

“And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”

Hebrews 12:2-3
