The gospel has power to change lives. We are called to share it, though 'we have this treasure in jars of clay'. God brings 'men (and women) of peace' into our sphere so that we can share the gospel with them.

Jesus' love for the church is seen in John 17, in his name for it (his bride) and in his sacrifice for it. Jesus helps us love the church, and the church helps us love Jesus. The devil tries to separate us from the church so that we are vulnerable to his attacks. Jesus sees all those who serve in his church in any way, and rewards them. We can take 4 actions to help make the church function as Jesus intended: 1) keep our eyes on Jesus and not on people; 2) when in conflict, go to the Word; 3) always give people the benefit of the doubt, believing the best of them; 4) when in conflict, speak only to the person involved (to stop infection spreading). The church is a gift from God.

Does the fact that God loves you still move you? God’s priority is not what we do for Him, but our relationship with Him. He values us knowing Him deeply. Out of our intimate friendship with Him, fruitfulness for His Kingdom flows. In John 15, Jesus gives a command and a promise: remain in Me, and you will bear much fruit. First comes the heart connection with Jesus, then comes the fruit. God interacts with us as a Father with His child, as a Bridegroom with His bride, and as a Shepherd with his sheep. We have one life to live and we want to make it count — but we do that by focusing on knowing Jesus first. Function flows from friendship. Additional scripture: Acts 4:13

Transplantation can cause beautiful things that would not otherwise have been possible. Just as many of us have been plucked out of one country and replanted in another, God often transplanted people back in Bible times. Daniel is a prime example of this: marched from Jerusalem to Babylon, he faced new languages, a new landscape, and an enforced new religion. Even his name was changed. But God was in control and had a great plan and purpose for Daniel, to do something beautiful in him, and also in his new location. Two things kept Daniel strong to stand against the pressure to conform to the local culture: regular prayer and a believing community of friends. Additional scriptures: Daniel 6:10, Daniel 2:17-19.
