THE TORCH AND ITS BEARERS
We have chosen the Torch to represent the call of every Believer to carry the
Light of God, Jesus Christ.
Torches are meant to be burned in the darkness
and change the atmosphere.
THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
When Jesus said, "I Am the Light of the world," He was saying
"I Am the Fire of God come to ignite My Church
to do the will of My Father."
He then said concerning those who would believe in Him,
"You are the Light/Fire of the world and a city set on a hill cannot be hid."
Psalm 50:2/Matthew 11:29-30/1 John 1:7/Luke 12:49
MANY CALLED, FEW CHOSEN
Jesus started the Fire of the New Covenant.
He was called to ministry on the earth and during His life He
proved to the Father He could be chosen to represent Heaven.
This meant He could be entrusted with the Keys to the Kingdom.
Every Believer is called to be a Minister in their
marriage, family workplace, community and congregation.
This calling is the invitation to be chosen to carry the Gospel.
The core requirement for being chosen is...
Time in His Presence.
Time spent receiving His Love and Loving Him back.
Only in His Presence do we have the spiritual strength to carry the fire.
Acts 2:2-3/Rev. 2:5/1 John 4:16/Matt. 11:29-30
In Christ You're a New Creation
2 CORINTHIANS 5:17
A Disciple must learn quickly to keep their eyes on Jesus.
To successfully follow Him our eyes must stay on eternity
and not be distracted by the temporal.
This allows God's Word to be alive and is seen as
never before. Then, when we make the Holy Spirit Lord we can begin to experience freedom for ourselves which empowers us to go to people, families and even communities
with that same freedom.
Now the Lamb can begin to receive His reward.
Matt. 16:24-26/Gal. 5:24/Romans 8:13-14
