Rule of Life // Alive in Christ // Pastor Ron McClelland

Scripture: Romans 12:1-2, John 15:4-5

Dear Church,

So, it’s going to be a really special day at the Grove on Sunday (I know, I know–I say that a lot), Pastor Ron McClelland will be preaching a message on how we can live our whole lives with the Lord.  Afterwards, he will lead the first of a series of five workshops on creating a rule of life during an extended second hour (with lunch provided).  I’ve been looking forward to this for more than 3 years, so I really hope you’ll join us.  If you’ve ever worried and wondered why your faith in Jesus wasn’t transforming your daily life, this is for you.

Here’s the thing–the world doesn’t need more people who believe in Jesus, think about Jesus or know about Jesus.  All creation is groaning and laboring and waiting for people who are more-than-believers, for followers of Jesus.  The world needs you–alive in Christ, not doing things for God but wholly and holy alive with God.  In his letter to the Colossians, the apostle Paul puts it like this, ‘You’ve received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live in him.  You’re deeply rooted in him.  You’re well-constructed upon him.  You know your way around the faith.  Now do what you’ve been taught.  School’s out; quit studying the subject and start living it! And let your living spill over into thanksgiving!’ (Col. 2:7, The Message)

If you are ready to start living your faith in Christ, this is for you.  You don’t have to figure it out alone.  You already have everything you need to be faithful to God in this season.  Together, Pastor Ron will lead us through a practical process of discernment to design a simple, powerful and personal rule of life.
