Matthew 5:1-12; 25:31-46.
We do not need to set about replicating the exact examples of missional action in our communities that we heard about last week, unless God calls us into those kinds of things. God calls, empowers, and equips each church, each group of followers of Jesus, to build His kingdom in the ways needed right where they are. The examples may look different as we live out our calling to “Heal Bromsgrove’s hearts and streets with the Gospel”, but the reason is the same and His name is Jesus.
We need to get hold of our calling to, “Fix your eyes on Jesus”, so that the only way we can live each day is to be totally committed to seeing God’s most perfect dream for Bromsgrove, coming into place.
Our prayer is to say, “Lord, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”. Then we need to ask: “Lord, what do You want me to do to make that possible?”, and when we hear the answer, we need to get up and get on with it.
