Last week, we rallied around The Grove’s mission and resolved to fight against those standing in the way of our faithfulness to it. Turns out—that’s us! Our half-hearted and indifferent commitment to change, and our unwillingness to fight for the new life God is calling us to is our greatest opposition. Just like Rocky told Adonis.
So this week, we dig in and start to train. Inviting All—do we really mean it? Is EVERYONE welcome here, truly? If so—we better get ready to fight. Literally, because there will be conflict. The good news is—Jesus teaches us how to leverage conflict for the sake of goodness. In the Kingdom of God, even a fight between believers can be worked together for good.
