How to Align Yourself With God’s Eternal Purpose

How the Ekklésia Expresses God’s Manifold Wisdom

  • Study the Bible — The Bible is the most complete exposition into the mind of God that man has. It is not exhaustive, but it is comprehensive. It’s a story that unveils God’s plan from before the beginning (Genesis) to after the end (Revelation). A true student of God who wants to test God and reflect Christ will study the Bible as a means of knowing God more fully and more in-depthly.
  • Prayer — Prayer is a direct pipeline to the heart of God. It allows us to inquire of God, pursue God in the purest relational form, and, in a sense, understand God from the inside out. Just as you would converse with an old friend to learn that friend’s most ardent desires and deepest expressions, conversing with God allows you to gain a deeper understanding, a more personal understanding, of God’s deepest expressions. Members of the ekklésia love to pray to God, and it is through prayer that we often find ourselves to be out of alignment and in need of realignment.
  • Fellowship — We humans are fallible. God is not. And while it is God’s purpose for each of us to know Him personally and deeply, we often fail. For that reason, it’s important to fellowship regularly with other members of the ekklésia. This is necessary because all of us are at different points in the journey. Some are further along while others are just starting. Those on the path can encourage one another, teach one another, and help refine each other’s understanding throughout the journey. More importantly, God’s manifold wisdom is made known through the ekklésia collectively, not through church members individually.
