PSALM 16:11

Come and Follow me

When the disciples first heard this invitation from Christ what filled their minds? A sense of wonder? A sense of risk? A sense of adventure? Christ issues the same radical call to each one of us. We want to hear His invitation and courageously respond to the adventure He has for us.

Called to fullness of joy

Today we have access to just about anything we could want but are we satisfied? Do we know what it is to have a joy that remains despite challenges, despite our insecurities, despite both our successes and our failures? Only Christ is the true source of joy. Nothing else can truly satisfy us. We want to be overwhelmingly filled with the joy of the gospel. 

Living the adventure

In any choice we make we choose for something and naturally end up choosing against other things. Choosing for the adventure Christ has for us means choosing against other things that the world offers. We want to step out in faith and wholeheartedly choose the life of adventure that Christ invites us to.
