I know – grammatically incorrect but it made you look.
For those of you at Xcel Darlington over the last couple of weeks you have heard my heart. My vision for what I really believe God wants of us. It wasn’t not new. It wasn’t revolutionary either. It was back to the basics of Christian living.
3 things that anyone can do.
3 things that if done with faith can make a difference to the people in your world.
3 things that help us become the kind of church I think God wants us to become.
Bold, I know.
Easy, maybe – if you love God, want others to love God and are committed to doing something!
So here goes.
PRAY. When was the last time you really prayed? I mean really prayed. And not for something you wanted but for the lost, someone in your world or not. When was the last time you ached for the lost? If you can talk, you can pray!
ENCOURAGE. Go to work with a sense of ‘I’m going to encourage some today’. If you see them as a pain, they probably will be. Why not view them how God does…as His child, with all that potential to be what God sees in them. Make their day. If you can talk, you can tell them thanks!
ASK. We wait for people to come to Church, while Jesus said we were to GO and bring them in. If we don’t ask, they can’t say yes. Apparantly 82% of people will come to Church if they are asked by someone they already know. If you can talk, one day you could ask. Go on, I dare you. They might say no….but what if they say YES!!!
Anyway, if you are from Xcel Darlington I would love to hear what you thought. Actually, wherever you are from I’d love to hear what you think.
