The Church That Jesus is Building – Part Fifteen

As we conclude our brief look at the mixture of CELEBRATION and CELL in the life of the Church that Jesus is building….

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS…

First, we create healthy relationships where hearts are knitted together (CELLS)

Then, we find a collective spiritual identity as we connect with something bigger (CELEBRATION)

This allows for unity, shared direction, people knowing the big picture, an emphasis on missions that will be shared by everyone, and a Kingdom-mindedness

This will allow a common spiritual identity to be formed that will be expressed at the CELEBRATIONS

A sense of ownership, commitment, alignment (unity and focus) will be seen and experienced

Thirdly, we can face the challenge that Jesus has given to us – to jointly take on the task of winning and discipling the neighbourhood (work place, town or city) where we live and work

AND, this structure of Life Transformation Groups allows us to immediate integrate as many as are being saved or are expressing an interest

I believe that this is part of the new wineskin that Jesus spoke about

“…Neither is new wine put into old wineskins. If it is, the skins burst and he wine is spilled and the skins are destroyed. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved.” Matthew 9:17
