Jesus died on the cross to take away our sin, give us new life, and become our king. We do everything by the power of the cross.
Jesus lives in perfect fellowship with the Father and Holy Spirit. Like the Trinity, we do everything in the context of community.
Jesus’ mission is to build a growing kingdom of grace and love on earth. We do everything in light of his redemptive mission.
In the New Testament, we don’t find our gift through self-examination and introspection and then find ways to express it. Instead, we love one another, serve one another, help one another, and in so doing we see how God has equipped us to do so.
