Reach: Jesus’s first priority was His relationship with God the Father. He spent intentional time with Him and challenged His disciples to do the same. Reaching describes the relationship that we have with God and how we grow closer in that relationship with Him.
Connect: Jesus also focused His time on building relationships with His closest friends. He gave them access to the deepest parts of His life and lived out His calling with them. Connecting describes our relationships with other followers of Jesus and how we grow deeper in those relationships.
Send: Jesus also developed relationships with those He was sent to the world for; the people that did not yet know Him. And Jesus wasn’t afraid to relate to outsiders no matter what others thought. Sending describes our relationships with people who do not yet have a relationship with Jesus.
