How do we grow?
Author Peter Scazzero says that the church has become good at making, “All Clad” Christians. We have a gleaming coat of Christianity covering our lives. Tragically, this coating doesn’t bring about deep change. For many, we have learned how to look Christian, but we struggle to experience the “peace that surpasses understanding,” or reap an abundance of the fruit of God’s Spirit. Instead, along with the world around us, struggles with mental health, emotional health, relational health, and physical health plague our lives. All of that adds up to the reality of poor Spiritual health. For many, we wonder, “Is this the way my Christian life is really supposed to be?”
Too often we wonder, “What should I do?”
This Sunday, we will ask instead, “How do I grow?”
Growth is undeniable evidence of life. And, Jesus came that we might have life and have it abundantly. Centennial is a community committed to building a culture of growth. A place where people can move from brokenness to wholeness, from fractured to integrated, from sickness to health, and all by the power of God at work in us.
It is good to gather as a community following Jesus and I am eager for us to be together this Sunday
Grace and peace,
