When we live from God’s newness–masks off and hiding over–we share wellness with all nearby and together we live better lives!
Give Well involves an obvious change that others see in us. All the freedom, healing, and transformation that God works in our heart binds us to him in new levels of loyal devotion. The new and expanding consistency, stability, confidence, contentment, joy, and love that others see and experience with us, is attractive. People want what we’ve found. Together we come to know God deeply, follow him fully, and represent him faithfully!
The newness that God “births” is his life in us. Through his presence in us he fights the enemy victoriously. The confidence and affirmation God offers encourages us to live from our core identity in him. We even become willing to be vulnerable knowing that his love—the one love that is most needed—can never be lost. We live out of our story (instead of trying to change or hide it) from an expanding sense of peace, calm, strength, and safety. This well-paced stability is contagious, spreading to everyone in our circles of influence, benefitting, recommending, and commending God to them all.
To GIVE WELL we need to be well. Relationships don’t tend to grow beyond the least mature among them. With God, we need no longer be the least-well, the limiting factor that holds back and drags down all our relational connections. Instead, God reaches out through us and lifts those around us! Together we all live better lives aligned and in love with the God who made us!
