2024: Year of Strengthening the Core

Welcome to 2024! New Year, New Season! Are we ready to start?

Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV)18 “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it?

2023 is now things of old. God is going to do new things in 2024. And God wants us to ‘know it’ (from the verse…Shall you not know it?) The key to start the new year is ‘to know’ what God will do. Today is the day to know and receive what God has for us for 2024.

For the last 2 years, God has been showing us what lies ahead:

    • 2022 Anniversary, we received God’s message of Greater Things
    • 2023 Anniversary, we received the message of Intensified Life

We firmly believe that RCMI, every one of us, is called to do the Greater Things of God. And to experience it, we need to have an Intensified Life. That is why this year, God’s focus for us is on Strengthening The Core. We strengthen the Core of ‘Who we are as a Christian’ and ‘Who we are as a Church.’ 

Big Idea: For the church to be victorious in the new season and journey ahead, we need to be strengthened from who we are today, to be equipped and built up together, ever more connected and committed to pursue the greater things of God.

Ephesians 4:11-13 – “11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”

To be strengthened…

  1. We need to do our ROLE.
  2. We need to be UNITED.

What do we need to Strengthen?

  1. Strengthened in Faith (Romans 4:20-21)
  2. Strengthened in Giftings (ability) (Romans 12:6-8)
  3. Strengthened in Ministry (service) (1 Peter 4:10-11)
  4. Strengthened in Unity (1 Corinthians 1:10, NLT)
  5. Strengthened in the Word (Matthew 4:4)
  6. Strengthened in Prayers (Philippians 4:6)

As we are strengthened in our Core, let us do more by practicing what we learned. 2024 is the Year of Strengthening the Core. As we are strengthened, expect more from God.
