Yeah – that’s how we finished out our “WITH” series. Since we asked the question at the beginning “Who are You With?” – we figured we would challenge people to be WITH US not simply FOR US – (check out this funny video from Community Christian Church who did the same series)
Jeff talked a lot about what TRUE COMMUNITY is about and not simply “lifestyle enclaves”. Then challenged us to make Christ’s Church @ Cobb a place of true community and for everyone to decide to be “WITH THEM” – the “THEM” being Christ’s Church @ Cobb and what God has in store for the future of this Church family.
One of the challenges from the message is found in Matthew 5:13-16 – where it speaks of us being “salt and light”. Jeff spoke of how often we take this to mean we as “individuals” are to be this, but the writer was meaning for it to be taken as a “plural” you – for the CHURCH to be “salt and light” in the world. That we should use our collective potential to impact the world and thus result in drawing people to God and Him receiving the glory!
