The Biggest Challenge You'll ever enjoy falling in love with!
Jesus’ last word to us was Acts 1:8. Could the last thing from His lips be the last thing on our minds? How can your church actualize Acts 1:8, our world-wide witnessing assignment?
BEFORE WE BEGIN…
Picture a man buying power shears, rushing out to trim hedges, then abandoning his task. He assumes his new tool is defective. Behind a return desk, a store clerk quietly hears the man’s frustrations then plugs in the tool to test it. Hands on hips, the customer says, “No one told me I had to do that!”
Jesus told us, “First, plug in.” We must depend on the Spirit’s power. Only then can we be His witnesses. If we understand what it takes to win a community, even our own, we understand that Acts 1:8 calls us to spiritually prepare.
- NOTE what competes with witness availability. Confess it. Address it.
- TEACH missions as biblical and essential to faithfully follow Jesus.
- PRAY for leadership, for laborers and for groups that need the Lord.
