Organic expressions of church come out of a truly life-giving, organically connected heart with Jesus. It is always Jesus first: love, worship, know, follow Him and then allow gatherings to take place from out of that dynamic.
I have been reflecting on the simple, profound truths that many of you are familiar with from Experiencing God, by Henry Blackaby:
- God is at work around you
- God pursues a love relationship with you
- God invites you to join Him
- God speaks to you
- Your crisis of belief
- You must adjust your life
- You can experience God (as you walk these steps)
I am taken by the fact that, at the end of the day, it’s always about knowing Jesus, hearing from Jesus, adjusting my life by faith to follow Him, and then inviting others to experience the same dynamic.
I want to use this post to invite your input on this subject of intimacy with Christ. What has God been speaking to you regarding the deepening of your relationship with Him? What resources have been personally useful you?
