In Asia, there is so much need. There are people to love and many places to see. We can "do" a lot for the kingdom of God, but if we don't live from a heart of worship, sooner or later, we will lose perspective. As Ultra, we purpose to live a lifestyle of worship. On the foundation of worship, we encourage vulnerablility in community. We pursue God and what He says about us as His daughters. We seek His heart for the nations, and purpose to love people freely.
We all long to be a part of something that is bigger than any one person; to belong, regardless of who we are. We need to surround ourselves with people who will push us to reach our God-given potential.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35 (ESV)
“Your vision for life will only ever be as big as your view of God.”
The way we live is determined by what we believe in our hearts about God and ourselves. There are voices all around us constantly telling us who we should be. What God says about us, despite where we’ve been, will change our lives forever.
“And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37 (ESV)
To love is to let our guards down and take risks. We need to allow people to see into our hearts and speak truth into our lives, as well as offer the same to the people around us.
“Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace." Eph. 4:2-3 (NLT)
“We love because we’re loved.”
God never intended for us to be a reservoir of his love. As believers, we are given the mandate to allow his love to flow through us and into the lives of others.
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:38b (ESV)
