“PURSUING GOD IS PASSION. EVERYTHING, AND I DO MEAN EVERYTHING, IS BOUND UP IN MY CHASING GOD AND ALLOWING HIM TO CATCH ME.”
GOLDEN SPRINGS INVITES YOU TO PURSUE GOD AND INVITES YOU TO ALLOW HIM TO CATCH YOU. THAT RELATIONSHIP BEGINS IN MATTHEW 22:34-40 AND IS REFLECTED IN THE WORDS AND ACTIONS SIMPLY STATED: LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, LOOK LIKE JESUS.
Loving God is intelligent, feeling, willing, and serving. It involves thought, sensitivity, intent, and even action where possible and appropriate. God has never sought empty words or empty ritual, but he has sought a loving relationship with you (John 3:16).
Loving People can be a bit more complicated, but it reflects our willingness to love God. This love takes care of the needs of others. It loves others like we have been loved with kindness, mercy, grace and reckless abandon.
Looking Like Jesus is a reflection of our journey with him and toward heaven. It is the transformational process that our love for God and our love for others leads us through. Looking like Jesus is choosing to love God, choosing to love others and, in the process, becoming like Jesus.
That is our pursuit and our passion. It is also our invitation.
