"Coming to God, Following God, Serving God " That sounds like something you might find on a coffee mug, printed on a t-shirt or as a book title at Barnes and Noble or Kindle, but we seek to keep it at the core of who we are at New Life. With God as the living King, New Life exists to help people come to God. That can only truly happen through knowing and trusting Jesus Christ. He died on the cross to pay the penalty of our sins.
Essential as that is, following God means more than just coming to Him at one moment of time. When one man asked Jesus what he might do to have eternal life, Jesus asked the man what he thought it was. After listening to him, Jesus approved of the man's response "...love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself" (Luke 10:26-68). Following God touches every part of our life
What about serving God? The truth is that we all live every day to serve someone. What we think about, where we spend our money and how we use our time reveal where the focus of our lives are and because of that who we serve. Jesus made it plain (Matthew 6:24) that you can't serve Him and something else at the same time. Serving God is putting what you believe into everyday life.
Until we see Him face to face, we will never do any of this perfectly. None of us do. But they are the core of who we seek to be as we follow the Lord day by day.
