Living On Mission

We were created to leverage our lives fully for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the book A Field Guide for Everyday Mission by Ben Connelly and Bob Roberts. Our church studied this a year or so ago and there are many ideas that are worth implementing from it.

One of the ideas I would like to implement in my neighbourhood is having a community party or BBQ. There are so many areas of our lives (work, leisure, where we buy groceries, etc.) where we can bring the Gospel.

As a member of the Gideons, I also have the opportunity to share the Scriptures readily with other people. While doing so, it is important to recognize that I may not be the one directly leading another to Christ, but at least I can water the seed.

A similar dynamic to this is going on in 1 Corinthians 3:6. Paul planted the seed, Apollos watered it and God caused the seed to grow. Sometimes we neglect the last part of this verse. Ultimately, God brings out good fruit in his disciples, and He alone is the one who causes all of our human efforts to grow, so that we may abound for every good work He has called us to do (Col. 1:10).
