As we model our lives after Jesus, we see a rhythm of live that revolves around 3 relationships: with God (UP), with His own community (IN), and with those in the world (OUT). These values are expressed through our 3 Pillars of Engagement: devotion, community, and mission. This week, we will take a deeper look at what each of these relationships mean so that we can pattern our lives after the way Jesus lived.

Due to a technical issue, the first few minutes of the sermon were not recorded. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The word “OIKOS” is the greek word for “household.“ In the first century, the average Jewish household was larger than the immediate family and included the extended family and the household servants. The entire OIKOS revolved around a family trade wherein all members had a part to play in order to ensure the families success. Jesus inverted the family structure to be inclusive rather than exclusive and created a new family trade that He described as “fishers of men.“ For the first time in Jewish history, the family EXISTED for a mission greater than itself! What does your family exist for?
