When we say, “Yes,” we step into a life of different.
This redefines our orientation of identity, purpose, mission and life. Everything changes. We leave the old life behind and become new. There is a cost to following Christ. It is not cheap grace. Our standing and as children of God, holy and righteous, has been paid at a very high cost by Jesus himself.
We have a new found identity rooted and established in and through Christ.
We have a new purpose – to love and glorify God with all of our heart, mind and soul.
Our mission is clear – to go and make disciples of all nations as ambassadors of the King.
And life… we have life – abundantly, fully and eternally – not in a worldly way, but in an “other” worldly way. Set apart. Holy. Counter-cultural. In, but not “of” this world. Different.
