I love to share what God is doing through His missionary people. Here’s a great story from Venture Church in Bozeman, Montana.
This concept of missional embodiment is not new. For nearly two thousand years, followers of Jesus Christ have been practicing it.
I met Pastor Jason Lane in Little Rock, Arkansas several months ago. He attended The Multiplication Workshop – and then headed back to lead his church in Palmetto, Florida to engage in making disciples who make disciples.
God is doing an amazing work through His Church in Oxnard and Ventura! Check out The Kingdom Center!
What thoughts does this trigger for you as you engage those in the culture around you with the good news of Jesus?
Looking at the pile of used ballet shoes in my daughter’s room brings the realization that I would never be able to spend a day in her shoes. Then I look at her feet and I see how brutal dancing has been on each one. It’s amazing to me what dancers endure!
Felicity Dale writes in An Army of Ordinary People,
Here’s the Missional Challenge:
We are moving from a doing for ministry to equipping and releasing….the value of equipping the saints is absolutely crucial! …At Soma, we don’t pay people to do ministry, that’s the Body of Christ. We all do that. But we do free up people for equipping of the saints and administering to feee up the movement of the saints.
Have you ever wondered what it looks like to incarnate the gospel in your neighborhood?
