Passion, Perspective, and Purpose

“’Build houses and live in them; and plant gardens and eat their produce. Take wives and become the fathers of sons and daughters, and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; and multiply there and do not decrease. Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.’”

God’s design for His children to be engaged and interact with society and culture has not changed.  He doesn’t want believers insulated and isolated from the lost and needy.  Rather, He instructs us to “live” in the regular patterns and rhythms of life with Godly passion, perspective,and purpose.  This will be a catalyst for conversations and opportunities to share the gospel and glorify God.  Jesus said, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”
