So, how is the “Search” going?
Better, I think. More and more individuals are being introduced to defining their worth by who they are because of what Christ has done for them, rather than by what they do or who approves of them.
Teaching this new definition of worth because of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ should be our mission as believers and as helpers. How can this best be accomplished?
The process has already begun. As I mentioned in the first part of this newsletter, many are becoming acquainted with the practical application of Scripture to value and self-worth through McGee’s writings.
I believe we can help this process along. We need more churches that are teaching these truths to their members in a Sunday morning Bible study format.
We also need more churches willing to develop study/support groups for their members, and as an outreach to individuals in the community.
Dawson McAllister has co-written a version of The Search for Significance for teenagers that is excellent.
If you think you or your church would be interested in developing opportunites for your congregation to learn these truths, or would like to use it as an outreach to your community, please give us a call and we will put you in touch with churches already doing so.
