NEW! Drop Down Now Included In Vertex

This month another new addition to the Vertex Framework is the S5 Ultimate Drop Down. This is a feature that was seen in several Shape 5 designs. Many have asked how to add to other designs so we decided to build this into the framework so every design here on out will have this functionality. Be sure to read more about this new feature here: Features:

  • Customize almost everything! Shadows, borders, gradient, opacity
  • Contains 6 module positions drop_down_1, drop_down_2, drop_down_3, drop_down_4, drop_down_5 and drop_down_6
  • Auto adjust to the height of your content
  • Set your own open and close text
  • And many more features!

“I’ll manage on my own, thank you”. How many times have you heard someone say these words? Or perhaps you, too, have said
them a few times.

We all know what it feels like to be lost, for example, in a large city. You firmly believe that you are able to find your way without consulting a map or GPS, or asking for directions. All of us also know what it feels like to look for a specific item in a large, unknown supermarket or hardware store. Eventually you ask for help, only to be told that you’ve been searching in the wrong isle all along.

“…so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being”. (Acts 17:27 – 28)

A person chooses to travel on a specific road, believing that it will bring him or her to the desired destination. It is an obvious life principle. But wrong choices, unhealthy relationships and impulsive decisions lead to unexpected destinations and disillusioned people. Most of those we meet during Straatwerk outreaches are at this point in their lives. Tragically, most of them persevere in thinking that they’ll fix their own lives. Or that they’ll find the right direction in their own strength.

Grace is God not holding a lifetime of sin against you. God’s grace knows no limits. It is also the “wrong” people who receives grace, those who own nothing to purchase it from God or earn it through living a good life. Grace is intended for all God’s lost property. Grace is God’s new Genesis. It is a chance to start over for everyone who ended up at an undesirable destination in his or her life.

All of us are also familiar with the feeling of relief when you find the right direction after being lost in a maze. Here at Straatwerk we had hundreds of personal conversations with people on the streets of Cape Town over the past year. The only way we could help them finding the right way was to point them to Jesus.

May you become deeply aware of God’s grace during this festive season. May you also cling to the saving hands of Jesus Christ, knowing: “I am forever found!”

Greetings from Fourie and everyone at Straatwerk.
