Christian Living

Reaching Wide.

“Reaching Wide” : If you think about it, a bridge without reach is just a pole or a column.  What makes it a bridge is that it reaches wide.   This is the heart of the Bible, from the Old Testament to the New, to take our solid foundation in Christ and reach wide to others, blessing them and connecting them with the Lord of All.  In the Abrahamic covenant, we see that “all peoples on Earth” were to “be blessed through [Abraham]” (Gen 12:3).  Jesus, Himself, reached wide as He spread his arms on the cross, to die for the salvation of all mankind.  And then He issued the Great Commission, telling His disciples to reach wide, and “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19) and to “be my witnesses…to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

Christian living, ultimately then, is about learning how to reach wide.  It’s living Christlike lives that testify to others.  “Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us” (1 Peter 2:12).  And we hope to hep you do that by providing resources that will challenge you, strengthen your faith, encourage you, and maybe even instruct and help you.
