We should be engaged in bringing people to Christ and bringing Christ to the people.
If you are waiting for permission or a church program to engage the culture around you then allow me to remind you that Jesus already said “Go!”
In the last month Diana and I have…
•Bought coffee for a young couple at the Starbucks in Target.
•Picked up a man and brought him to Bible study and back home.
•Picked up the lunch for a family of three in a handicapped van behind me.
•I shoveled the driveways of four of our neighbors.
•I added a bottle of water to my snacks for a football coach who forgot his wallet.
•I bought dinner for a Coach who was a presenter at the Coaches clinic.
•We gave away a book to five area pastors.
•We gave over $1000 in man hours through counseling to couples.
•I gave a blessing & cash to a partially blind homeless man reading his Bible at McDonalds.
•We offered my services to 3 different churches in the area to help them in their mission.
I’m not opposed to programs to mobilize the troops and to accomplish good works that are bigger than any one person. Q: What can we do consistently as a body that can impact and influence an area or group of people?
However, we must continuously be reminded that the liturgy is the work of the people and we are the program of the Holy Spirit for random acts of charity. Q: How are you burdened for the world?
An army of individuals who are released upon the world to carry Jesus into their everyday life will go places no church, group or program can ever reach. Q: Who is within an arm’s length of your reach?
Instead of just trying to bring people to Christ, we also need to bring Christ to the people. Q: Who have you introduced Jesus to?
The mission of Stone Table Church is to express the heart of the Father in everyday life to transform lives, renew the church and engage the culture.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?” -Messiah
Q: What are you doing in and with your everyday life?
