My Heart // My Love – What’s it about?

What is the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

What was it that made you believe it?

How should we “live” evangelism?

“Seeking and saving the lost.” Christ’s life can be summarised in that phrase. But if we’re honest, seeking and saving the lost is not our culture. Our culture is more about maintenance, self-centredness, and “I”.

The reality is this: if we don’t care for the lost and the fact that people are not being born again, we’ve got sick hearts. That’s why we want to focus on the heart with the theme My Heart // My Love.

When our heart is moved with the Gospel our heart has a love for our city and the nations of the world. Inward to outward. We’re trusting God to change hearts. We’re desperate to see revived hearts which care for the lost – hearts which know, deeply, the benefits of the Gospel; hearts that urge us to pray for others and trust for real opportunities where we can share this wonderful liberating Gospel. This sharing is a lifestyle.

If the Gospel doesn’t ignite our hearts we aren’t going to ignite other hearts with the Gospel! If the Gospel isn’t what we’re about, can we really expect ourselves to make it our life? Can we expect others to believe it? If we don’t feed on Jesus and nourish ourselves in Him (see John 6 for context) how can we have a passionate conviction to invite others to do the same?

#LoveJoburg

Our city and our world needs the Gospel of Jesus. And God has commissioned us to bring this Gospel to a world without hope. As God works on our hearts in this respect, let’s talk about it!

So send us:

  • Testimonies of God working on your heart. Testimonies can also just be one-liners, not long blogs posts. (Leaders, encourage your guys to send us these!)
  • Tweet and Facebook about what God is doing, about your love for the people of this city, etc. using the hashtag #LoveJoburg.
  • Instagram photos of the city to #LoveJoburg.
  • Send us stories of encounters with God, evangelism, prophecy, people you’ve met in the city, how God is working on your heart, etc.!
  • Send us your photos of the city, of the people in the city.
  • Leaders, tell us what’s going on in your group – prophecy, testimonies, what God is saying to you collectively, etc.

Everything will go up at our My Heart // My Love page.

Email your stuff to ryan@cornerstonechurch.co.za.

Officially we’ll kick off the My Heart // My Love preaching series on 27 July (in the third term) and this will also include a Love Joburg evangelism focus on Wednesday nights at Bedfordview. But let’s not wait until then! Let’s have God work on our hearts now!
