LED TO LEAD
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
GOD’s plan was to fill the earth with people who reflected His image as they live their lives. Mankind was to take dominion over all created beings. This means that God’s will and purpose or His rule and reign will be lived out and pursued wherever His image bearers go. When sin entered the world, this image was corrupted. The world was corrupted. Through Jesus, God redeemed our souls and and is working in us to transform us back to His image.
God’s people today are called to take dominion where we are. We who have made the decision to follow Jesus and acknowledge Him as King, are called to live out and promote or expand His kingship in our own lives and our spheres of influence and beyond. We who have surrendered to the Kingship of Jesus must, out of gratitude and love, expand His Kingdom. To expand God’s Kingdom requires for us to LEAD, and in the power of His Spirit and His Leadership, we can!
As a GCJ family, we want to embrace our calling to follow or be LED by King Jesus and to embrace our calling to love people and LEAD them towards HIM. This is very much in line with our Vision and Mission.
