Life Shapes - triangle

(from sermon notes, 5/29/2005, Pastor KM)

picture a triangle ... on the left corner it says, "in," on the right corner "out" and on the up point "up"

  • In - directed to believers. John 13:35 "By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."  
  • Out - reaching others.  Matthew 9:35 "Then Jesus made a circuit of all the towns and villages. He taught in their meeting places, reported kingdom news, and healed their diseased bodies, healed their bruised and hurt lives."
  • Up - at the pinnacle of life, important to have a relationship with Jesus. Luke 6:12 "One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God."
Another verse that describes the tenets of the triangle is Micah 6:8 "He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."   The Bible is perfectly balanced.  Out=Act Justly, In=Love Mercy, Up=Walk Humbly with God.  

Walking humbly with God.  Looking up. Reaching upward. It is integral to everything we do.
