Standing on Holy Ground
Christina Gibson (culled from Christian Today)
In Matthew 18:19, Jesus told us to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. These are our marching orders, given to all who call themselves followers of Christ.
Therefore, barring extreme life circumstances, if we’re not executing Jesus’ command, we’re living in disobedience. And yet, most of us long to honor Christ in everything we do. So how can we heed God’s heart in this area? How can we create an atmosphere of outreach that has the capacity to transform lives, families, and communities?
There are numerous ways one can share Christ, but often our most important and immediate mission field begins with our sphere of influence. By centering our lives in Christ and growing closer to Him, prayer, focusing on relationships, and taking time to be strategic, we can create thriving gospel communities in our own backyard. Teaming up with others who share our vision will help us maintain the focus and endurance necessary to change lives and transform communities.
