What does the “IN” part of our life look like?
Luke 6:13-16 says, When morning came, He (Jesus) called His disciples (followers) to Him and chose twelve of them, who he also designated apostles: Simon (whom He named Peter) his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James of Alphaeus, Simon who was called the Zealot, Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became the traitor”.
We were created to be in relationship with God and others. In our day and time we don’t always believe we can have close relationships like Jesus had with His followers. Relationships that are committed and gracious, that share everything and remain supported to each other no matter if the season of life is good or bad.
Everyone desire to be known and accepted. At Fort Barachel we want to be that place and ministry that cares for others. There is a number in our community that are spiritual and relational orphans who want a family and a place to belong.
In John 13:35, Jesus said, ” By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, IF YOU HAVE LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.”
When we love others well, and our “IN” relationships are as important as our UP and OUT, people will want to be a part of our lives.
We must live in Harmony with our UP, IN, and Out daily rhythm.
