Do What We Can For Whom We Can

May 24, 2011   //   by Church At The GYM   //   Blog, Daily Living, Missions  //  No Comments

27 Do not withhold good from those who deserve it
when it’s in your power to help them.
28 If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say,
“Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.”

Proverbs 3:27, 28

A principle our church runs on is helping those who we can help. The sad reality is that we cannot help everyone in the world, but those whom we can help WE ARE GOING TO HELP! Part of our philosophy at Church At The Gym is to live a life of purpose, to intentionally live on mission and help those around us.

If you are part of our local, faith community, we want to challenge you to go out on your own and help those around you. CATG holds special projects through out the year, but generosity is not something we turn on and turn off. It is who we are. Take your generosity with you everywhere you go. Live a generous life!

Mission

May 19, 2011   //   by Church At The GYM   //   Blog, Daily Living, Missions  //  No Comments

Businesses love to boast about their mission and mission statement. Whether it is to be the best cell phone carrier in the world or whether it is to provide the best sandwich in all of Sanford, Florida. If our mission is unclear, it will make it impossible for us to gauge whether or not we are doing a good job.

Our mission at Church At The Gym is simple we want to make Jesus famous. This is acted out differently in everyone’s life. Sometimes this will take us to Alabama to help with tornado relief efforts. Other times it will lead us to Guatemala to provide people with a house and a place of worship. Our mission challenges us to live differently at work, at home and in anything else we do. Our mission is not something we “turn on” and “turn off” like a toaster. It is something that compels us to live differently every day.

We challenge you to join us in our mission of making Jesus famous to the world.

Our Great Responsibility

May 17, 2011   //   by Church At The GYM   //   Blog, Daily Living  //  No Comments

I love watching movies. I rarely go to the theater because it is so darn expensive nowadays, but I went to go see Spiderman when it first came out four years ago because of all the hype around it. I’m glad I did because I thought it was a great movie. The last two have been disappointing, but the first one was excellent! One of my favorite lines from the movie is when Uncle Ben tells young Peter Parker, “With great power, comes great responsibility.” This principle is true because it is a biblical truth! The Bible speaks clearly about accountability. We are told that to whom much is given, much will be required (Luke 12:48).

As Americans we are privileged to have much more than the rest of the world, and we will be held accountable. Our great power is our money, it comes with great responsibility.

The Bible tells us in Matthew 25:31-40 that Jesus will look at us and reward us by saying, “I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was hungry, and you gave me food. I was naked, and you visited me.”

We here at Church At The Gym place a high value on living generously. People are hurting in our area and around the world, and we must help. With great power comes great responsibility.

If you would like to donate to one of our projects feel free to give online, and where it says “Note” type in the project you would like to help support. We also have trips that support this mission. We are heading to Africa in the fall of 2011, Belize in the spring of 2012, and Guatemala in the summer of 2012.
