Today people are looking for significance. Jesus is the only one who can bring true significance to any life. Abundant life in Jesus involves living out the role of an ambassador of reconciliation. When we come to Jesus we are invited to take a the yoke of ministry. Ministry involves seeking and saving those who are lost.

Throughout the world people are looking for hope. Anxiety, depression, compulsion, addiction, are all symptoms of an inner disconnect. It seems simplistic, but we were made for God. Life at its best is lived within the context of a spiritual connection with the creator. Through the prophet Jeremiah, God declares that if we call upon Him, He will show us great and mighty things. One translation says God will show us secret things. The mystery of life is one of those great and mighty things. As people call upon the Lord the puzzle pieces fall into place... things begin to make sense and that brings peace.Jesus called the priesthood of all believers salt and light. The Apostle Paul states that we are Ambassadors of Reconciliation. In following the Messiah, we are to pour ourselves into the task of making disciples. Discipleship is not just a matter of making the right argument, but rather participating in a supernatural work. The best example is that of a midwife. Our job is to help bring spiritual babies into the world. Everyone must be born from above. God choses to use the church as the wire that brings the power... bringing light to the darkness.
