“I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” ~Matthew 28:18-20
“Where does my life fit into the great and grand story of God’s mission?”
What would it look like if God’s mission was the starting point of your life? It’s a shift in perspective. The simple acronym BLESS outlines one way to live this kind of life and mission by the following five simple practices
“I may wonder what kind of mission God has for me, when I should ask what kind of me God wants for his mission.” ~ Christopher Wright
Our mission to go and make disciples of all the nations (Matthew 28:18-20) finds its roots in the original mission to go and be a blessing to others (Genesis 12:1-3). This means that blessing others and seeing people come to know, love and serve Jesus are linked together!
If you do one of these BLESS practices every day, you will not only look more like Jesus, but you will help others find Jesus too!
SIMPLE WAYS TO BLESS
Begin with prayer: I will pray for the people in my life and the places that I’m in.
Listen: I will listen to and discover the needs of others and the places where God is at work.
Eat: I will share meals and spend time with people in my life.
Serve: I will respond to the needs of others and help them in practical and impactful ways.
Story: I will share the story of Jesus and what He is doing in my life with others.
The Bible can sometimes be a little confusing:
- how do we read it?
- where do we start?
- what about all these translations?
- or those boring passages – all those unpronounceable names?
- what we do with all those laws and rules in the Old Testament?
- how do I make sense of it all?
Join us Monday, 18 April at 2pm or 7pm, bring your Bible
as we explore these and other questions together.
