When life gets dark or overwhelming it is so difficult to notice the light, life or hope through the circumstances. Questions of ‘why’ loom unanswered. And even today as we drive teenagers to youth, they are asking much more existential questions through their anxiety and overwhelming teenage years. They are asking about heaven, the purpose of this life, where to find hope (even if it’s questions just for their friends)
Then last night we celebrate a man heading to heaven leaving an incredible legacy in his family.
There has to be more to life than these years on earth. That’s what this promise says.
And the whole earth needs to know that YES there is!!! That’s the true heart of R1000. Another missional opportunity to swing the doors wide open in a way that makes the ‘yes’ known.
In a city of 4 million people with less than 1% in a life giving Christ-centred community of faith ... this is our mission. 1000 is a drop in this ocean.
However 1000 sharing the light and life with another 1000 becomes thousands ... and then a might nation emerges.
Let’s not hide this light. Let’s shine. You are positioned to share this good news of hope for people’s now and eternal future.
We love you
