Have you ever seen the look on the face of someone who has just become a grandparent for the first time? Have you seen the excitement of cousins when they hold their family's newborn? One birth brings new life to many! New birth brings joy and vitality to the whole family! And that joy spreads beyond the family into communities of friends.
We have the opportunity to help birth that kind of new life today. Right where we live. In the lives of people and communities we know and care about. In John 10:10, Jesus said that he came "so that everyone could have life, and have it to the fullest." (CEV) Connecting people to Jesus transforms lives, which transforms the world.
We have the opportunity to birth a movement that will bring life, joy and vitality to thousands of lives in countless communities in a way that will echo indefinitely. And in being caught up in it, we ourselves will become more fully who we were created to be.
