The most powerful and effective way for anyone to faithfully, joyfully and persistently heed the call to action is through the motivation of love. It is incredible to realize that the heart of God overflows with love for us! It is this love we experience which compels us to love the Lord Jesus and all the people in the world in the same manner in which we have received the gift of His grace. We love because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19) In order to live a life committed to the transformation of the world it is vital to maintain the connection with the One who is the source of our life, the Lord Jesus. In John 15, Jesus tells us that He is the vine and we are the branches. Our lives will bear much fruit as we remain connected to Him. And so we live, in the rhythm of Prayer and Mission. We join with Christ in the Mission of God (Missio Dei) out of our loving relationship with Him. We hope this theme will resonate with your heart as together we seek to become more faithful servants with Jesus to the world He loves.
