The Pursuit …seeking God’s direction
Jason hit the nail on the head when he said that ‘we can’t do it without you’. So, what exactly is it that we want all of Origins Church to join together in doing? We simply want to be unified and excited about moving this church forward. And above any action steps that we can take to ensure this, the most important thing that we can do as a church is to make sure that God remains the focal point. Our own plans and goals for the future will fail, without first seeking what God wants for Origins Church.
So, with that being said, this initiative is going to be a 5-month long journey that we will take together to actively pursue God’s will & direction. Each month we will have a specific observance that we will participate in as a church. During the month of March, we are engaging in a church-wide fast. I know what you’re thinking… ‘No food for a month??’ Don’t worry. We’re not asking that of you. There are many different ways that one can fast. But any form of fasting requires sacrificing something that we hold too tightly, and filling that time with focused prayer. Maybe it is food, or a food item. Maybe it’s technology or social media. The purpose is to be challenged with a personal sacrifice and as a result utilize that time to draw nearer to God. Each week we will all have a specific prayer focus. At the beginning of the week we will provide this focus along with scripture and a corporate prayer that we want everyone to be united on. All of this will be described for you and constantly updated on the Origins App. We know that God is at work. We want to be a part of what He is doing with the future of Origins. We would love for every one of you to actively participate in The Pursuit of God’s direction.
This first week of March our prayer focus during your fast is for “our church community to be unified and focused fully on Jesus”.
“I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.”
1 Corinthians 1:10
