Delight, Devote, Display
At Harvest Glasgow we want to intentionally pursue the following things with
you and for you. We long for this local church to be a place where you will grow
in your capacity for the following things.
Delight in Jesus
We long for you to increasingly delight in the Lord (Psalm 37: 4). We believe a commitment to gathering with God’s people Sunday by Sunday is fuel to your delighting in the Lord. We also want to be a place that encourages you to be more than a Sunday Christian but rather that Sunday would also serve as an overflow of your growing delight in the Lord across the rest of the week. How does that work? Personal Praise (Psalm 145:1-3; Hebrews 13:15) Corporate Worship - Psalm 95:1-11; Ephesians 5:18-19
Devote to Jesus
We long for you to grow in your devotion to God. This is more than the commitment of duty but a growing capacity for adoration and affection. We believe that God’s design for you is to have a closeness to Him. The local church should be a place where you get to express His worth to you.
How does that work? Abide in Christ (John 15:5-7; 1 John 2:6)
Walk in Community (Acts 2:44-46; Hebrews 10:23-25)
Display for Jesus
We long for your life, and our life together as a church, to
exist as a display of God’s glory. Things that put that on display are your
readiness to share Jesus and your willingness to serve Jesus. As you grow in
godly character and infuse your conversations with Gospel content you develop
in your ability to live out the calling of the Great Commission.
How does that work? Love Freely (John 13:34-35; Ephesians 5:2)
Serve Sacrificially (Ephesians 2:10; Colossians 3:23-24)
Give Generously (Deuteronomy 15:10; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15)
Share Openly (Mark 16:15; Romans 1:16)
