"You are the light of the world - Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven." (Matthew 5:14-16)
This is the biblical reference for KBC's vision statement. It explains the importance of growing as disciples so that we can go out into the world serving and reflecting the love of Christ in all that we do. The Christian walk is one of growth and renewal so that we can go out into the world equipped and prepared to demonstrate the love of Christ by both our actions and our words. As we each go out - into our mission field (where we live, work and play) we see need and seek to meet it because that's what Jesus would do. We may be the only hands and feet of Christ that a person may ever see.
This is our challenge and our opportunity as the Church of Christ. So let us gather together to pray, worship, equip, and fellowship intentionally so that we are ready to walk in faith as we continue the journey wherever we are.
Please pray daily for God's guiding presence and discernment as we "continue the journey". Pray for a willingness to "obey" God's leading and to truly desire to follow his calling in our lives. Every journey means their will be new opportunities and new possibilities. A journey is never static. Each turn will mean choices, transitions, and change.
So focus on the journey. It is both inward and outward and constantly changing because God is at work! Never forget - you are his missionary on a daily faith walk right where God has planted you. So be all that He would have you be.
As we Serve together,
