Church Planting is... {Part 12}

{This Friday I will be co-hosting the Hello, My Name is ________ link up with Kerry from Glory in the Valley. This link up is an opportunity for us to shed the lies that we often use to define ourselves and rename ourselves according to our identity in Jesus. Join us this Friday right here or on Kerry's blog, and link up your Hello, My Name is ________ post.} Church planting is about seeing more of Jesus.

More Jesus in our cities.

More Jesus in our homes.

More Jesus in our families and marriages.

More Jesus in our workplaces.

More Jesus in our conversations.

More Jesus in our hearts and minds and lives.

Church planting is about seeing more of Jesus...seeing Jesus made greater.

Church planting isn't about seeing more people in a building on Sunday morning...it's about seeing hearts and lives and cultures transformed by Jesus.

Church planting is about Jesus permeating every part of us, the church, more completely each day. And as we are filled up, we then strive to see our own Jesus saturated lives used to make His name known and loved by more and more people.

Church planting isn't about more churches...it's about more Jesus. More Jesus in us and overflowing from us to change the culture around us for Jesus' glory.

But we must not forget...more Jesus in us and overflowing from us and changing the culture around us for Jesus will also mean more churches.

Be blessed <3
