Be light and salt... without regard to circumstances. Simple instructions to God's people throughout history.
Not easy. Not glamorous. But precisely what God asks of His people.
To the people of Israel facing 70 years of enslavement, He instructed them to: "Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what you produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper." Jeremiah 29;5-7

The VehicleThe Body of Christ
The Body of Christ, the Church, is a living organism with the sole responsibility to act on behalf of Jesus.
It is unique in its role.
It is called the Body of Christ on this earth.
And, this body "displays the manifold wisdom of God and His glory throughout all generations, to every nation, and even to the principalities and powers in the heavenlies." Ephesians 3:10
In the darkest of places and most desperate situations, God sends out his people to be light and salt; seeking to share the love of God that they have experienced with others.
Today, the Church has an unprecedented opportunity to function both locally and globally and to share resources and celebrate together as participate as one body in God's work.
As part of this Body,
The Cross Connecting Network engage the local and global body of Christ and release Kingdom resources to build up the Body of Christ in love.
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:15,16
