“Jesus sent his twelve harvest hands out with this charge: Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously. Don't think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign before you start. You don't need a lot of equipment. You are the equipment…” Matthew 10:5-10a MSG
Jesus does not wait for one to reach perfection, earn a theological degree, or preach with eloquence; he wants to use us now. An interesting detail in this scripture is that Jesus did not ask the disciples, He commanded them. In a world full of so many choices, Jesus does not give us one. The question of spreading the Good News is not if, but when.
In order to be effective in reaching people, one must first be equipped. The task cannot be well done without the right tools. Here at VOUS we say that Growth Track is the front door of our church. It is where we can equip you with all of the tools to begin your journey in serving God. So why not join us? There is a world to reach and you are needed. We’ll save a seat just for you.
My prayer is that we would follow the command of Jesus and make not just attendees, but disciples. Will you join me in doing so?
