Today we welcome Nigel along with Chris Brittain who is the “Australian Simply Mobilising Kairos Course Director”. Chris ran a session on Tuesday at our Church and several came for that excellent overview of what God is doing as outlined in His word. We were encouraged to be on mission with God. Mission should be central to the life of all Churches. Genesis 12 helps us to realize that we, as God’s people, have a mission to be doing for God.
The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:1-3, NIV.
I believe we are also called to be a blessing to those around us and to help them to follow Jesus. This begins in our street & suburb but it extends to the whole world.
