Relationships matter. We focus on God’s relationship with us through Jesus. We strive for strong relationships within our families. We look at the way we relate to other Jesus followers and the world. We realize we can’t love God if we don’t love others, and just like He made the first move towards us in Christ, we will make the first move towards reconciliation with others.
It’s all about King Jesus who we serve. People need to see Him. We are not Jesus, and we aren’t perfect–but we want to live like He lived, and do what He did so some might see The King through us. When we mess up, we admit it, make amends, and reflect on God’s love to us at our unlovable moments.
Jesus followers respond to the leading of God’s Spirit within them and the needs of those around them. God doesn’t have to speak to us for us to love others, care for the poor, or share His message. He’s already told us to do these things, but when He does speak something–we listen.
