Giving you a process for moving down a pathway of Enjoying, Embodying and Extending the Freedom and Family of Jesus.
Week 1 – Partnership.
Pathway Process is about partnership. It’s about taking what might be intuitive for some in following Jesus and making it transferable for the benefit of others; and taking what might be confusing for others and making it deeply intuitive. Pathway is about fostering a life enveloped by the love of God and others. Lives that are so full of being loved by God that they spill over into radical love for others!
Week 2 – Cultivating a 4G vision for life.
Matthew 28:19-20 is known by most as the Great Commission—the command from our Risen Savior that our everyday lives are to be about His Kingdom; that the adoption we receive through faith in Jesus brings with it a new, truer purpose: a daily, exciting, even divine agenda to give our lives to four key practices of GOING, GOSPEL’ING, GROWING and GATHERING.
Week 3 – How to pray.
In Matthew 6:9-13, Jesus tells us to “Pray like this...” He gives instruction—what’s famously come to be known as “The Lord’s Prayer.” And the instruction he gives is not a format for how to pray—like words you have to say everytime you pray—but rather a framework. Specifically we see a picture of God’s character, which when understood, allows us to really know the God to whom you’re praying, and in that way enjoy simply “being” with Him, rather than using or fearing Him.
Week 4 – How to build community.
The Gospel rides on the rails of relationship! Not only do we need community to ultimately experience and enjoy the Gospel of Jesus Christ, others need to see and experience community to get a taste of the Gospel within their lives. Jesus calls us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Loving our neighbor—building community—enables us to be a GOING people.
Week 5 – How to read the Bible.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edgedsword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Every pages declares the Gospel of Jesus Christ: the message of freedom, through the medium of family, for the mission of God's glory!
Week 6 – How to spend time with your Bible.
Engaging with Scripture can certainly be daunting; yet Jesus tells us that He is our shepherd and that His sheep hear His voice and follow Him. In a world full of other voices vying for our attention its paramount for us to be able to pick up the Bible and hear from our Shepherd. By faithfully digging into Observation, Interpretation and Application, God truly does speak to his people–declaring the message of freedom, medium of family, and mission for His glory–to his people.
