What On Earth Are We Doing In God’s Name For Heavens Sake?! Sizewell Hall Session Three
What does it mean to be ‘missional’ The Church sees itself as being missionaries to a post-Christian world right where we live. We are sent into our communities as representatives of Jesus Church is not a place where we go but what we are through the week
Being missional means… Jesus is active in our culture – we are able to join him in what he is doing We are in the world and engaging with that culture but not ‘OF IT’ All of this means we are more dependent on Jesus and The Holy Spirit, through prayer, the scriptures and each other. Being ‘Naturally Supernatural’!!
So, What are we doing… On Earth… In God’s Name… For Heaven's Sake?
More Like JESUS Constantly exercised to be more like HIM Absorb God’s word Meditate– as it fills your thoughts/attitudes Ask God to continue changing you from one degree of glory to another, day by day. Allow life's experiences/hard times to change you – for the better! Jesus Said ‘He who sees Me sees Him who sent Me’ John 12 v 45
The Heart Cry of Humanity See my Sorrows - Feel my pain – Forgive my sin (Psalm 25 v. 18) hear me (listen) be with me in my pain (empathise) I need an answer to guilt and remorse Met in full by Jesus
Loving involves… Hands in serving Touch Feet in going Time Ears in listening Valuing Hearts in giving Gifts Mouths in speaking Words
So, be Jesus To the frightened, the lonely the lost and ‘the sinner’. Give unconditional love to all that he puts across your path Hold on to things lightly and people closely Offer hope Keith Tondeur – Credit Action
