As I continue to talk with people about what this ministry is about, God has made it very clear to me to "get to the heart of the matter". So what does that mean? This means to not mince words because I do like to write and talk about God, and I have A LOT to say! But as God has directed, I will keep it brief - at least I will try.
The purpose of this ministry is to help The Church, the ecclesia, open its heart more to God with the intention that the closer we come to Him, The Body acts as one heart and one mind.
Why? Because when we open our hearts more to God and His innumerable ways, we can open our hearts more to others. Not just Matthew 25: 35-36 'others', but to our brothers and sisters in Christ. This is an ecumenical mission to stand as one body (Eph 4:3-6), one Church, standing on the foundation of Matthew 22: 37-40. Standing as one community, one family, under the banner or Standard of Christ. This banner of love and peace doesn't invade the darkness, it rather invites others into the Light where Love is seen, felt, and made real. Where others believe because they come to know it through the Word and experience.
The Bride, the Body of Believers, The Church, is split/divided because of man's interpretation of God's Word (utterance). We know that division weakens any position or message (Matthew 12:25). To follow Christ means to follow His Word, His sound - and he exhorts us to the standard of Matthew 22:37-40 and calls us to be bearers' of this standard. When we do this, everything else becomes clear, becomes whole, becomes one. Spirit once said to me "(The) Love (of God) has a sound that enables us to see." And in turn, the sound we make helps others see too.
So what standard do you hold yourself to? What standard does your church family hold itself to? Where do you maintain walls instead of building bridges between other followers of Christ and the Church at large?
So the invitation is to look into your own heart with honest introspection. What do you see living within you? Where do you love some and not others, in your family, in your church family? in your community? in the world? Where do you hold a judgment that separates you from others who love Jesus too? Where have you put a label on other Christ followers (denominations) and kept yourself separate because of something other than Matthew 22:37-40?
Use the sound of Jesus' words to illuminate your perspective and allow His Voice to open your heart to that which it is closed. Your city needs to see and experience that the Love of God is at the foundation of who you are as an emissary of this Light and that The Body is united in its connection with Christ. How can the body move in one direction and at odds with itself, when the Head tells us otherwise? In order for the Bride and Groom to be compatible, or in communion with one another, they must act as one; one voice, one heart. (Ephesians 4:3-6)
This is an ecumenical call to reconciliation - which is a call to love more and to come closer into The Heart of God where His Way is unequivocally our way.
Many blessings and peace be with you,
