|THE CIRCLE |
The first thing you notice is that the circle isn't perfect, just like all of us. There is only one perfect person and that is Jesus the Christ who sits at the right hand throne of God (Heb. 12:2). We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and no one is righteous on their own (Rom. 3:21-26). Though are sins were like scarlet, we were washed white as snow through the blood of Jesus Christ (Isa. 1:18). The circle has been damaged, broken, used, etc. However, it's still here. This is a metaphor of our lives. The circle has cracks/openings, as our lives should be from overcoming through the strength of Jesus Christ. We have been broken by many people, situations and some self-inflicted wounds, but we survived to LIVE. Not just Live for Him, but allow the Holy Spirit of Jesus to Live through us so that God gets the Glory alone (Sola Gloria Deo).
|THE REMNANT |
The Remnant are survivors of impossible situations which produces outcomes of victory, strength, wisdom, power, grace, love, etc. In other words, you didn't survive life's tragedy's to just exist. We survived to Live in such an existence that people see our faith in the promises of God and His spoken Word that it draws them closer to an investigation of the Most High God. Prayerfully leading to an intimate relationship with Him. We Live in truth to obey Him because we Love Him. We Live to produce the very nature, likeness and characteristics of Yahweh Elohim.
|THE "R" |
First, we are Redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb. Purchased back from the penalty and power of sin. No longer slaves to sin (Rom. 6), but we now obtain the Holy Spirit who equips to do God's will (Heb. 13:20-21) and submit and serve Christ where salvation comes alone (Sola Christo).
Secondly, we have a Relationship focused ministry as Jesus met people's needs practically and spiritually not to condemn, but connect us to God the Father (John 3:16-17). Jesus did more ministry through one on one discipleship outside of the church which is the model which we seek to implement until His return. This is how we build community together.
Thirdly, the "R" stands for us to Represent Him through true Repentance that leads to faith in the promises of the spoken Word of God alone (Sola Scriptura). This type of faith produces fruit publicly and privately through integrity, humility and accountability. Religious free... Not looking the part but denying true relationship with Christ and only attending a church service (2 Tim. 3:1-5).
Finally, Our faith and salvation Rests on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and that He appeared to the Apostles, Paul, and over 500 witnesses, fulfilling His promises that He would live again and we would also be raised from death to eternal life with Him (1 Cor. 15).
We are Radical, Real, and Relevant to a generation looking for believers of Jesus Christ to Reflect His nature and not just treat Jesus as a marketing tool of a big corporation. We serve Jesus who Reaches out His arms with Love, Forgiveness, Grace, Mercy and Acceptance all the days of our lives.
If you don't know Him, your "R" would be to Receive Him Right now to obtain Eternal Life by believing in His promises that there is nothing you can do to obtain Righteousness without faith in Jesus Christ and His perfect life, sacrifice and resurrection for our sins, past, present and future. Repent and Believe to Receive to this free gift of Salvation (Eph. 2:8-10).
