• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Particularly thinking & acting universal

This past Sunday, we headed out with some of the Paris Prayer Conference participants to pray for the town where we are involved in a small house church.  We met for prayer with Christian and Florence who lead the group.  As they shared about the spiritual needs of the area, they mentioned that D-, a woman who recently started coming to the house church and was baptized just two weeks ago, had talked to them about how she could already see how the Lord was going to “expand” our group and start another in a neighboring town where she lives.  The surprised yet excited look on their faces said it all. 

Here was a woman who had been called out of darkness by our “pursuing” God, who recognizes that it was He who particularly sought her, and who testified that when she read the Gospel of John, she immediately felt that all her wanderings were over and she could finally “unpack her suitcases” as the expression goes in French.  Here was a woman, barely a year old in Jesus, who was already thinking and acting with a universal mindset and heart.  “This is mission,” as Richard Bauckham said.
