Be holy as I am Holy! 1 peter 1:16
He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Eph 4:16.
Happy are the people whose God is the LORD. Psalms 144:15
And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. Eph 2:6
I will make you
Fishers of men
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
His Presence is our highest priority. We will remove every barrier that seperates us from HIS presence and HIS promises. The pleasures all pursue are found in His presence. Every move we make and every action we take, we seek to preserve HIS PRESENCE. We want God to be present and not absent.
In your Presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures for ever more. Psalm 16:11b
God is passionate about people and so are we. We will always aim to prioritize people over process or procedures. Our processes and principles exist to serve people and help them become all that they were created to be. People are his passion, and people will always be our passion.
The second is equally important: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' No other commandment is greater than these." Mark 12:31
His power is our pursuit. There are many things we can pursue in life but only one thing worth pursuing... His Spirit of Power. With His power we become potent to change the world. Without His power we are impotent to change a thing. His power raised Jesus Christ from the dead. His spirit of power still turns ordinary people into extraordinary people and with His power we can truly change the world.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
His purpose will always be our purpose because his purpose is good, pleasing and perfect. When we discover HIS purpose for our life ... we discover Life itself. That is why our purpose is to help others discover thier purpose in HIM. We exist to help people discover who they already are in Jesus.
Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21
His Peace is what we have all been promised. The world is looking for peace and that peace is a Person - his name is JESUS. God delivered His Peace when he delivered Jesus. Our desire is to deilver Jesus - Peace - to every person, everywhere, at all times. We will carry His peace, walk in His peace, live in His peace, speak of HIS peace and deilver His peace. We are promoters of Peace.
"I am leaving you with a gift--peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid. John 14:27
