If you've ever skipped stones across a lake, you've seen what they call the 'ripple effect'. Friends, as God’s people and as The Church – we’re to have a ‘ripple effect’ = an ever-expanding reach of impact and influence for Jesus. Jesus said His Father is always working (see John 5:16-18) …and that He is always at work as well. We get to join in that work, to partner with God in His activity. God is still active friends. (he’s not distant, distracted, or dormant). He is active in an ever-expanding scope of work…within us, through our reach, within our city, all around our world.

We live surrounded by voices speaking over us, around us and into us and seeking to shape our identity. We live in the tension of basing our identity off what the 'world' says we are or off what God says about us - leaning on our 'kingdom identity' in who and what God says we are. The truth for us to grab ahold of: you are not defined by who or what the world says you are, but by who and what God the Father says you are!
A Pursuit of Holiness
July 8, 2018 • Lyle Thompson
Tonight, our worship director Lyle leads us in a dive into God's holiness as we examine Isaiah's encounter in (Isaiah 6). In our land where we're always and continually connected, are we connected to the heart of God? The pursuit and enjoyment of the holiness of God calls us to unite with Him, His character and heart - to know Him and be fully known. God's holiness confronts us, convicts us, challenges us and will always change us. God calls us toward holiness and He invites us closer to Himself. Jesus makes a way for us.
