Moving in SYNC with Christ (Part 1)
Move under NEW YOU, and rework.
Why are we never too busy to SYNC with God's rhythm? Because we always have time to be who we are!
Moving with the rhythm of the story of the world is about being. Who are we? How do we see ourselves? What is our place in the story?
SYNC gives us seven perspectives on how we fit into the story, each based on a different game-changing event God planned and carried out. We look at those events and ask, "What does that event make us? Who are we now because God did that then?"
FREEDOM: "You will realize what the truth means, and it will set you free." Jn. 8.32 “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you.”
LAYOUT FROM OLD STEP 3
Most of what you get to do arises from listening for the rhythm and celebrating it (Parts 1 and 2 of "Moving with the Rhythm"). The Real GOD sees and hears, which the fake gods don't. The Real GOD also talks, nudges, or somehow just lets you know what to do.
SYNCing with the Real GOD is not like trying to keep a bunch of rules but trying to play an instrument to a beat. You can tell an orchestra that the conductor is oppressing them by demanding that they follow his timing exactly, but they will not believe you. They want that beat. It frees them to produce beautiful music.
Here are some of the kinds of music you get to produce when you hear God's beat.
Pronounce blessings on other people
Notice other people's needs and feelings, and be there for them
Encourage and praise people
Participate in things that change the world one person at a time
Tell your story of what it is like to move with God's rhythm
Pass on things you have learned or realized while reading the Bible, using SYNC questions or doing other SYNC activities
