The Church As Family. A video from last summer featuring two friends and moi. The younger good looking one is me. (Just want to see if you’re reading this!)
Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.’
This video is a wonderful picture of what “sentness” looks like when a community of believers embraces the Gospel and is sent on mission together.
In all Christians Christ is present, in some Christians Christ is prominent, and in a precious few Christians, Christ is preeminent.
Today’s the start of something small but also something I hope will grow. I’ve started a blog. Finally! Nothing like being 10 years behind the times, right? Thanks to those of you who have encouraged me to do this for years now.
There is much talk these days about being missional and much of that talk is task oriented. I believe that true missional living, every believer a missionary, is the fruit of the Gospel. As an apple tree always produces apples, the Gospel always produces missional “sentness.” At a retreat with some friends we stated it like this…
The default posture of every believer is one of ‘sentness.’ If you lack ‘sentness,’ you lack Jesus.
Hopefully the words, pictures, and videos posted here will be an encouragement to God’s Church and further the mission of Christ and His Kingdom—all to the glory of God.
