8 “I go to Hope.”

9 “We bring nothing to the table.” Ephesians 3: Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s grace, which was given me by the working of his power. 8To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things, 10so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. 11This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him.

19 What do we mean by fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ? It’s not praying a prayer to receive Jesus into lives and hearts. It’s not just knowing about God or about what God wants for this world, people, and the church. It’s not about becoming a member at this church or any church.

20 We believe a fully devoted follower is someone who God has brought to new life through belief in Jesus Christ and God is continuously growing in maturity through his Spirit, the Word, and other believers to make them a continual light to the world.
