For MODIFY 2019 our theme takes us to the heart of what Activate is all about- reaching the lost. As Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:20-22, the way to do this is to find common ground, embracing what is similar with those you meet, without compromising on truth. Like a chameleon, we can adapt and modify our ourselves to make ourselves more approachable, more welcoming, without changing who we are and what we believe.
To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.
1 Corinthians 9:20-22
