Read: John 13:35
The New Testament is full of wild stories that encourage us to live differently. One word, however, stands as a clarion call to God’s work of transformation in the world. The word is “Go.” It may take some adjustment on our part to realize this, but nothing of God’s Kingdom happens unless someone is willing to GO.
WE ARE A FAMILY OF MISSIONARY SERVANTS SENT TO SERVE THE WORLD AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS.
Sometimes GOING will require a 30-second email to encourage a friend, a five-minute walk across the street to help a neighbor, or the willingness to give up a quiet evening with your spouse in exchange for inviting some friends over who don’t know Christ.
Other times, GOING may require a week-long commitment, a large chunk of money, or even a lifelong commitment to leave your city or country to serve God.
Whatever the case, the word GO will cost you something. It will require that you creatively look for the opportunities that God provides you to leave what’s natural and self-serving in order to extend his love to others.
Journal/Text Question: Think of the family members, friends, neighbors, and co-workers among who God might be sending you to bring the Gospel. Can you think of anyone?
Prayer Starter: Jesus, help me to realize I’m sent.
