One of our favorite sayings at New Hope is “the fastest way to the throne will always be through the servant’s entrance”. Jesus modeled servanthood to us, and when we develop our gifts, we begin by coming through the servant’s entrance.
DESIGN is an acrostic that stands for the different ingredients that, when combined, equal YOU! When you recognize and develop each of these six categories, you’ll be on your way to realizing your full potential in Christ. Three wonderful things begin to happen when you are willing to launch out and use your gifts for the sake of the kingdom: you will know amazing joy, enjoy healthy accountability and experience accelerated spiritual growth. The more you understand the way the Lord designed you to be, the better you will be able to corporate with His design.
My prayer is that the DESIGN course will stir your heart and give you the the tools necessary to “lay hold of what Christ Jesus laid hold of for you” (Philippians 3:12). Thank you so much for being here. You are a precious and powerful part of His plan!
