Jesus defined the essence of life in terms of KNOWING GOD (John 17:3). The Psalmist points out that it is in seeing God for who He is that we discover who we truly are (Psalm 36:9). The New Testament writers remind us that our true IDENTITY is rooted in our IDENTIFICATION with Him (2 Corinthians 3:18 & 5:17; James 1:23-25). When we fully IDENTIFY with the One in whose image we are created, we find ourselves being restored to the quality of life He intended for us.

It has been said that we could never desire INTIMACY with someone that we do not consider our equal. The fact that Christ desires INTIMACY with us speaks volumes about our IDENTITY. Christ shed His blood for us not only so that we could be redeemed from a sin-dead past or saved from a dead-end future. He gave His all so that we too might know the same quality of INTIMACY with the Father that He Himself enjoys. The distance between Man and God was cancelled at the cross with the cry - ‘IT IS FINISHED!’ The presence of the Comforter Himself within us confirms that we are of His kind.

KG 2.5 - HEARING THE VOICE OF GOD
Why is it so difficult to clearly hear the voice of God amidst the clamour of everyday life?

How can I grow in my personal devotion to God?
KG 2.7 - THE POWER OF INTIMACY: Case Studies in The Book Of Acts

Our INTEGRITY is closely connected with the inherent capacity that comes with our original design and redeemed nature. That capacity finds expression in our function and behaviour. A lack of understanding of our IDENTITY in Christ, combined with a lack of INTIMACY with God as our Designer, leaves us vulnerable to the influences of the reigning culture. A life of INTEGRITY is the evidence of INTIMACY, the fruit of IDENTIFICATION. It also becomes the hallmark of a mature believer in Christ.

How do I steward my personal responsibilities with integrity?

COMPASSION is one of the most natural ways of expressing LOVE. The Gospels repeatedly point out that it was COMPASSION that motivated Jesus to engage with those whose lives were in need of God’s restorative touch. COMPASSION is nothing less than love in action.

Why were the apostles seemingly silent on the issue of slavery?

Not do but, but done will take you on a journey of discovery of the full implications of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ and His message of grace. Discover the really good news of the Gospel and the fact that you are included in it.

The way to life in all its fullness is found when we embrace what HE has already DONE. Finding and living out our CALLING can therefore never begin with who we are and what we wish to accomplish in life. What we are CALLED to do in this life follows naturally on the heels of our IDENTIFICATION with Him. Our CALLING is rooted primarily in responding to what He has already DONE, partnering with HIM in what HE is now DOING. 

LP 2.1 - PAUL’S LETTER TO THE EPHESIANS
Is it our calling we should be busy with? Or His calling? And how do the two relate?

Knowing that LOVE is best displayed by giving, the lifestyle of the City Changer is naturally characterised by the CONTRIBUTION we make as we engage with those around us.

In what ways will your calling find expression in your everyday life?
So much of the technology we have become used to in our 21st century lifestyle was born – and subsequently developed – in the process of 20th Century space exploration. That, in itself, would never have been possible if mediaeval science had not made the paradigm shift away from a geocentric understanding of our solar system (the earth is the centre) towards a heliocentric model (the sun is the centre). Although a geocentric worldview seems to correspond with our human experience (we see the sun circling the earth as it rises & sets each day), it is inconsistent with the nature of REALITY (the earth revolves on its own axis as it orbits the sun). Similarly, although there are Worldviews and perspectives in different cultures that seem to correspond with our human experience, only the Worldview of Biblical Christianity sets us up to engage with life in alignment with REALITY as God has defined it. Making the paradigm shift away from an ego-centric worldview to embrace a CHRIST-CENTRED WORLDVIEW is essential if we want to live accurately, IMPACTING OUR WORLD in God-intended ways.

IMW 1.7 - CONVERSATIONS ON CULTURE 05:
SOCIAL JUSTICE
How is it that Christianity has come to be considered one of the greatest stumbling blocks in the way of the aspirations of people of colour in their desire for equality and social justice?
The Good News of Heaven’s plan for Man is the most natural place to start in bringing heaven’s solutions to bear on the problems we encounter here on Earth. Being heavenly-minded – WORKING within our WORLD from a CHRIST-CENTRED WORLDVIEW – is essential if we want to be of some earthly good.

IMW 2.1 - THE BOOK OF JAMES
How does being ‘heavenly-minded’ translate into doing ‘earthly good’?
IMW 2.2 - AN INTRODUCTION TO WORK
Isn’t ‘work’ part of the curse that came as a result of Adam’s sin?

IMW 2.4 - ETHICS IN THE WORKPLACE
Whose standard of ‘good’ is shaping our good endeavours?
IMW 2.5 - LIVING CREATIVELY
What does it mean to ‘be fruitful’?
IMW 2.6 - PROBLEM-SOLVING
What is it that I really want at work … and why?


Jesus’ personal mission set the platform for all of mankind to regain what Adam lost (see Romans 5:17). It also laid the foundation for cosmic restoration, activating the reconciliation of every aspect of creation back to the Father. Knowing what’s wrong with our world – and why – helps us to work with intentional focus toward restoring what’s broken. Bringing WHOLENESS into our world has now become the personal privilege of every City Changer. We are Christ’s ambassadors, ministers of reconciliation, drawing people’s lives – and the processes that shape the quality of their lives – back into alignment with the heart of the Father.

God brought you to this City for a reason

The Bible is clear about God's love for the city, be it Babylon, Nineveh, or Jerusalem. Thousands of years later, His love hasn't changed - and God still calls His people to speak to speak truth to the cities of the world.

In City Changers, Alan Platt shows how we need to be in the classrooms, boardrooms, and marketplaces of our communities, engaged with society and ready to offer hope to the broken. Alan gives pratical answers and inspiration for influencing the spritual, social, and cultural dimensions of where we live, as he tells his remarkable story of watching God's church deeply affect cities around the world. 

Generations of changed lives tell us that Christianity can radically transform society, beginning with spritual transformation in the lives of individual people. As Alan writes, the church is called as a missional presence to instill the character and presence of Christ into the core of community.
