FRUIT: our Key Word for 2012
Every year, the Holy Spirit gives us a key word which both encompasses and expresses His main intention for us. It helps us stay on course in terms of living out our God given Vision, Values and goals.
Our word for 2012 is “Fruit”. God is calling us to take all we have learned from the past and now fully serve Him and his great purposes, being fruitful to His glory. We do this in two ways: making sure we personally bear His fruit in our lives, and then corporately being fruitful as we work together to fulfill His vision for our church. Internal fruit – discipleship and maturity – is fruitfully expressed.
Let’s be intentional about our fruit bearing in 2012! Casting aside every hindrance, let’s move forward in working together to reach our city and the world with the Good News of the Gospel of Jeus Christ. Ultimately, the finest fruit is bringing others to the Vine where they too can become fruitful to His great glory.
His Favor be your portion,
