Partner Strong


Partnership is not an optional endeavor for those of us who follow Jesus. Maybe we would have the choice if this was our story, or if we were entering at the beginning. But it’s not, and we aren’t.  This is God’s story, and it centers on the hope and redemption of God’s world. We are standing in the long line of people who have partnered with God to tell His story. We are truly surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses to this life of faith.

God has placed us in this exact moment of human history, and He has chosen us as His partners. Not based on our resume or talent. No, God picks His partners based on availability over ability.

So now it’s our turn to partner with God, with each other, and with the world as we find our place in the greatest story of them all.
