Show Up (Hope) message from Linda Evans on May 7, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana.
How do you measure success?
We all have various days in our lives:
Do you know the difference between signing up and showing up?
Signing up means you have good intentions, but showing up means you have good follow through. Surprisingly, that is what most people in our lives desire - the follow through, or more simply put...
TO SHOW UP!
We are called to be a place that is open to all those in need. And guess what -we are all broken and need to show up for each other.
Kay Warren's Blueprint:
C - Care: Support people who are ill or struggling (Luke 6:36)
H - Help: Provide basic needs in times of struggle and difficulty
U - YOU!: We are all ministers to others (John 12:6, 1 Peter 4:10)
R - Remove the Stigma: It's not us and them - it is WE!
C - Communicate Honestly: Speak truth and ask for truth
H - Hope: Offered through genuine action (Hosea 2:15)
Never forget the Hope we are given through Jesus for eternity!
I have this Hope - Let's show up!
