Growing in Jesus
We are to always be growing in relationship with Jesus, in the life of faith (Colossians 2.6,7). The construction of a building is a great metaphor for our spiritual journey. The Holy Spirit builds on a foundation of prayer as we seek the face of God. Because, when Jesus is lifted up He draws all people to Himself (John 12.32). Jesus builds on that foundation with His own grace and our cooperation with how He is leading, that is the support framing of the building. Finally the dry walling, painting, carpets, furniture and finishing touches are our working together as the body of Christ (Ephesians 2.21) as we keep our eyes on Jesus (Hebrews 12.2).
Prayer is foundational to EVERYTHING. That is why all of our community groups pray together to cover our lives, our church and our community in prayer.
