Grow
This sermon unpacks the original design God had for mankind.  Much of this has to do with growing.  Plants, gardens, animals, humans, we all naturally grow.  It was God’s desire that Adam and Eve would tend the garden well that they were in and then grow it to fill the entire earth.  This desire of God’s is now being carried out through what Christ has done for us on the cross, like a seed, dying for us, in order to grow the most spectacular, everlasting garden, called the Kingdom of God.  In the remainder of the message, Howard outlines Godfirst’s goals of growth for 2020, hoping that Godfirst can play an exciting part in God’s kingdom filling the whole earth.

Go
This is the first in a series about man’s original purpose here on earth, to be fruitful and multiply, to go fill the earth and rule over it. This sermon focuses on how because we are created in God’s image and he is pro-active, we should be to.  Howard describes how difficult it is for mankind to do this, because our natural desire is to stay in our comfort zones and be turned inward, uncaring about the rest of the world.  However, ultimately God desires for us to ‘Go’ and bless the world, to ‘Go’ and make disciples of all nations so that is what we must do as Christ-imitators.
