A longtime friend shared a story about a car he once owned. The car had no reverse gear. When someone asked how he could drive a car with no reverse he replied, “I just always parked the car where I didn’t have to back up! As another year has begun most people are contemplating how they can make progress and move forward in different areas of their lives. We can all find ourselves in one of three places: GOING FORWARD, STANDING STILL, or FALLING BEHIND.
Most of us desire to go forward in our personal lives and long to see the local church have a greater impact in reaching a lost world. The New Testament Church must meet the challenge of going forward. One of the best ways of getting the church involved in going forward is to become a Great Commission Resource Center or GCRC as it is often called.
Learning how to become a GCRC can involve every member and will move the church forward in the task of carrying out the Great Commission. Contact the Regional State Missionary in your area to find out more.
Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12-14)
