I’ve been challenged with this thought over the past couple of years: Good enough isn’t enough, best is best.
As you begin to consider these words, they can be used almost as a mantra not only as part of the decision-making process, but as a way of life. The word best becomes part of the lingo used and heard often. And even still, while you may frequently wrestle to detect what this best that’s looming out there is supposed to look like, it’s done in a way where growth and being confronted with Truth is part of the process of lives continuing to be changed by Christ.
The danger, though, is that each of us can come to LCBC on the weekend and settle for good enough while God desires best for our lives; he desires us to come alive fully in Him.
LCBC is a big place. With four (and soon to be five) campuses God has been doing some incredible things and has gone to mind-blowing measures to bring people through the doors…many who would say that they are or have been far from God at some point in their life.
The reality is that as more and more people come and seek out God’s best through life with Jesus, care becomes a bit of a tricky task. With a staff of about 120, it’s not physically possible to individually care for each person’s unique needs…nor would it be best. Good enough care doesn’t truly meet needs.
Connecting in a LIFE Group at LCBC is where the care takes place. It’s where community is built and lives are shared. It’s where neighbors love on neighbors and needs are met. It’s where conversations lead to life change, where specific prayers are whispered, and where we are challenged to grow in our relationship with God, each other, and our community.
Connection is part of the process of moving from good enough to best…and it’s mission critical in our lives as followers of Jesus.
