“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.”

 

Ephesians 1:18-21 [NIV]

OPERATION MOBILISATION

  Operation Mobilisation is a global community of       Jesus Followers, united to share God's love with       those who don't know it. The example they seek to embody is Christ's generous, limitless love.  Shaped by His presence, overwhelmed by His sacrifice and transformed daily by His power, we will never be the same. His love fuels our passion for all to hear the gospel and know the deep, life changing love of our Creator.  So we go. No place is too hard, no people too far, no idea too crazy, no dream too big, and our failures do not hold us back. Tens of thousands have joined this cause, and hundreds of millions have heard the gospel. And we’re still going.  We believe that the love of Jesus has the power to change everyone and everything, including the reality of those who are oppressed, forgotten and marginalised.

We believe it is God’s mission to transform lives and communities as He reconciles the world to Himself, and we have the privilege of joining with Him in this mission.  This transformation isn’t only for those we serve. It happens to us, too. When we step out in faith, we start to change as well. Our hearts are changed, and this means our attitudes, relationships and priorities change also. Our soul is refreshed, and we find significance in who He has made us to be and what He has made us to do.  We are people who don’t fit a mould, who don’t sit still and who love the adventure of serving God's mission. We listen first; we don’t just show up in a new place and project our way of doing and thinking.  We wake up each day with the confidence that the God who created the universe—who knocked over the walls of Jericho, who healed the blind and who raised the dead—is with us. This emboldens us, empowers us and keeps us moving forward.  We believe everyone was made for God’s purposes. Everyone. Our talents, gifts and passions are His tools in us. If God wired us to design, then we design. If He wired us to organise, then we organise. If He wired us to build, then we build. We want our work and our words to shine His light and love so that those we live amongst will see it and glorify God.  His love and mission fuels our passion to cultivate bright, thriving communities of Jesus followers that—in His time—will touch every person on earth.  We are OM.

HAPPY EASTER

The world we live in has many uncertainties… but we are confident of this…  Jesus The King of kings, came, and lived, and died, and rose again, and is coming again…

Because of what Jesus accomplished on the cross, we can be certain of forgiveness, salvation, new & eternal life!

All because of Jesus!

So we celebrate and know the reality of Jesus, our friend and Saviour 24/7!!! 

“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you”.

Romans 8:11 [NIV]

LIVING VISION

When we think about the Easter Story and all that Christ has done for us…. When we stop and think of all that he taught and has called us to…

I think ‘Operation Mobilisation’ communicate the vision and passion that we are to live out for Christ.   Would you read through the Easter story again this Easter and read the Operation Mobilisation article opposite… and ask yourself is this how I am living? What would it look like for me to live more like this?  To know God more and to make Him known.  To know His generous, limitless love, His presence… to be overwhelmed by His sacrifice and be transformed daily by His power… That we would never be the same…

The disciples… Operation Mobilisation all started somewhere…. Will you start where you are today…. Will you take steps to live passionately for what Christ called us to?  He gave his life for us! He is fully committed to finishing what he started!  The question is are we?  This Easter, let’s be refreshed, challenged, changed, inspired and mobilised to live with a passion… to live the vision.

We read throughout God’s word of the difference a vision makes in peoples lives! Let’s get the vision that Christ came to bring and live for it with all that we are! That our lives may be a vision to others of what God wants to do… can do… will do… in our lives if we will live out his vision. “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come”. Ephesians 1:18-21 NIV.

LIFEWELL CHURCH 2021

As we step into 2021, who knows what it will bring.

Many are hoping the vaccine will allow some sort of normality; however it would seem that we are being encouraged to not expect the restrictions to ease soon. 

So for the time being we will be remaining on Zoom, awaiting the easing of restrictions before starting back meeting at the church building.

I’m sure that you are continuing to pray that we will see the back of this virus and the restrictions that it is placing on us.

Please pray for us as a church that God would lead us into all that he has for us.

Pray that God would help us to know his way forward as a church to enjoy and share the life and love that he brings in the midst of the challenges we face.  Pray that we would see a real team come together and that we as a church would grow in living and journeying as the family of God that he has brought us together to be!
For such a time as this!

Please pray that God will use the online videos to touch and change lives and that when we start back, we will have grown in strength and number!

 

Philippians 1:6 NIV - being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

 

Ephesians 1:18-20 NIV - I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, [19] and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength [20] he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms…

 

Philippians 3:12-14 NIV - Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. [13] Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, [14] I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
