View: 5390"One evening, Kuna and Dametrie, two study geeks, decided to take a break from their algebra lesson and shoot indoor hoops. They crumpled pieces of notebook paper and began to shoot at a strange woven basket in the corner of Kuna’s room—a basket that Kuna had never seen before. Aft er a number of misses, Kuna connected. Suddenly a bright purple glow arose from underneath their impromptu basketball. When opened, the previously blank sheet of paper had writi ng on it in a foreign language. It looked African, possibly a language Kuna’s Cameroonian Grandmother might understand. With her help, they discovered it was the fi rst clue to a mysterious ethics code, which sent them off on a journey to uncover the next nine clues—an adventure that had promise of great intrigue and self-discovery."

View: 3691God created us for good works that were planned in ages past. He knew the future and our place in it. While participation is a duty clearly stated in scripture, many Christians are unaware of God’s desire for their mobilization. Others may not be carefully listening for his voice or, regrettably, dismissing him as if their participation is optional. No Christian is exempt from his command to be transformed into spiritual awareness, to grow in biblical knowledge, and in parallel, to participate in the building of his kingdom. The disengaged miss the joy-filled opportunities that enable personal growth through work that fulfills their responsibilities within the church body. The earth is blooming with 7.5 billion souls. More than ever before the entire body must mobilize to effectively represent the stature of Christ. We are his hands, his feet, his fragrance, and his voice in our world. This twelve-week study lays out God’s plan to advance the gospel and discipleship through the work of his redeemed family, endowed by the Holy Spirit with gifts and power to change our world. The study addresses issues that weaken Christian resolve, compete for our attention and time, and even cripple his people. These issues require a serious call to duty.
