Change is Inevitable - Our New Season In Life...Church Planting
As we have seen with our first child, nothing stays the same for very long. If there is one thing that we are guaranteed in this life it is change. With that being said, we are on the precipice of our biggest change in the last several years.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 3:6-9 "I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, you are God's building." God has given man the unique opportunity to be co-laborers with Him. Our job is simple, we are to plant the word of God in the hearts of people and continue with discipleship (watering) so then God can give the increase.
One of the commands that Jesus gives is to go into the world and make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:46-49; John 20:21; Acts 1:8) After taking a trip to Cape Town, South Africa, we have felt the call to return and plant a church in the area. We would be working first with Calvary Chapel Cape Town which was established there about 12 years ago. After getting to know the place better we would branch out and start our own church. Please pray for us as we are at the beginning stages of this en-devour.
