EMERGING VALUES ~ MISSIONAL
The Blues Brothers were on a “mission for God”. The extent to which they went in order to fulfill their mission illustrates the humour, passion and what some will do to accomplish that mission.
As Christians in this culture, we need to seek out what God is doing, and come alongside with what He is doing, and find our place and serve by the power of His Spirit, with a heart filled with humility and joy that we can be a part of the Missio Dei.
Being intentionally missional is being pliable and open to hearing the voice of the God, as He directs us and opens up avenues of grace into the lives of other people. Being the Church, the people of God, is not about being part of a club. It is about letting Jesus Christ manifest His life through our hands and feet, as we seek to serve and bless others. It will mean sacrificing for others and giving as well as standing in the gap for those on the fringes. It will be about being a redemptive community that seeks the best for all. It will mean being about what God is about, rather than what we are about. It will mean being so intimate with God, that we will have our hearts break with what breaks the heart of God. It will mean seeing the world through the eyes of Jesus, and moving forward in His grace to touch those whom He loves.
