What's it all about?
Looking back on the last 6 months here in Istanbul we have seen so much happen. God is so faithful to bless our lives with great joy and purpose when we simply live in faith and obey His words. We have been taught and shown how to live a life that is pleasing to Christ. So many people try to figure it out on their own but when you see the life of Christ in the New Testament you see what he wants from us. I think its made up of three basic things. First you must know that you are loved by God. Secondly, you must love God. And thirdly, you must love yourself. With these three things happening in our lives we find ourselves LOVING PEOPLE! That's what this is all about. God loves people! This is the life worth living - loved by God, love to God, and loving myself equals loving people. Its been such a joy to love people in Istanbul and we can't wait to come back and keep on loving people. These last 6 months we have received just a small understanding of how God loves us and how we love Him, ourselves and Turkish people. But it happens all around the world today. God is searching for people to respond to His love. Answer His call of love to you.
