GOD WANTS US to be in community and use our gifts to help others. We are God’s gift to the world, and we can provide light for those in darkness, warmth for those who are cold, and joy for those who walk in sadness. Our true purpose is to worship God, understand who Jesus is, and be moved by the Holy Spirit to action. Just as a match gets struck to create warmth and light, what we witness in the world should strike us so that we are moved into action. We can submit ourselves to live the life of a disciple and transform the world.
