I generally like to challenge those in our life groups to operate outside of our comfort zones. We as a church (inclusive of all churches) often get too comfortable and forget that we are on a mission to share the Word of God and connect with others. So, after a life group member expressed their desire to coordinate two days to be in the nearby communities handing out scripture, we embraced it.
First, I’d like to say, the Word of God is powerful. It has been changing lives for years. It is the Living Word. It has the power to change lives; we are a walking testimony to that change. But if it has changed our own life, why wouldn’t we want to make it available to others for it to change their lives too?
After these past couple of days handing out scriptures in our communities, we reflected last night on all the gleanings from this coordinated event. Here is the list:
These are just some of the gleanings. I would encourage you, and your church, to seriously consider being active in the community you live in. The Lord has called us to do this and great things can happen while operating outside of our comfort zones. Let’s get outside of our comfort zones for Jesus. Let’s do it together!
If you live in Haldimand-Norfolk and are looking for a church that’s focused on connecting with others, discipling, sharing the Word, please message us. We’d love for you to join The Bridge family. We do life together.
