We have navigated through many months of unprecedented challenges for our times, which reminds us of John 10:10 (NLT) where Jesus declared, “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.” Thankfully, Jesus did not stop there. He added, “My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” Jesus wants to help us thrive as individuals who serve Him and on a corporate level as church bodies. In his letter to the Colossians (1:9-10, NLT), the Apostle Paul wrote, “So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.”
It’s time to move beyond survive to thrive! Our focus at Thrive 21 is to encourage our hearts, resource our minds, and uplift our spirits with these promises: richly satisfying lives and ministries that produce a multitude of good fruit! Join us. Let’s apprehend what the Holy Spirit has been commissioned to do in and through us.
