Centered: Everyone's life is centered on something or someone. This is the core of who a person is, what they believe and what carries the greatest significance in their lives. This can vary from person to person, but what about the church? The church is made up of people, a collected group that shares, at their center, certain core values that drives everything they do, live for and devote themselves to. So what are the people who make up Grace Point Church centered on? What is at the heart of this collection of people? Is it worth having your life centered on? Join us as we discover together what is worth centering our lives upon. Centered: August 3rd - August 24th
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
