Reflecting again on:

Luke 18:18-30 and the failure of the rich young ruler.

1. He failed to be broken by the truth about himself, about his pride and about his idolatry.

2. He failed to be humbled by the power of God to meet him at his point of real need to be right with God.

3. He failed to be transformed by the generous and gracious love of Jesus. 

He was invited to make all his resources available to God's purpose among the poor and to simply follow Jesus

Jesus was on His way to the cross and the invitation was to follow him to the Cross. The Cross is the place of truth about our real brokenness, sin and need for mercy. It is the place of trust in the power of God for forgiveness and the gift of true righteousness. and it is the place of spiritual transformation through the generosity of God in pouring out his love in justice, mercy and grace.

Stay close to the Cross!

Our Passion

1. A fresh move of the Holy Spirit compelling us to radical action
2. A focus on God's priority to bring release to the crushed and the afflicted
3. An authentic faith that is demonstrated at home, work and place of worship
4. A foundation that is designed by God for fruitfulness in every area of life
5. A fight with the world, flesh and the devil to the end

Authentic faith

1. It is centered in our relationship with Christ
2. It will be tested through the troubles of life
3. It can be evident in our daily choices.
