Wimber-who led the Vineyards said, “The meat is in the street. If we want to see the power back in the Church, we’ve got to take it to the streets.” Just studying the bible is not enough. It’s like trying to eat the menu instead of the meal.
Let’s look at this passage together from Jesus:
Matthew 25:34-40 NIV
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
- What does this passage say?
- What do we learn about God?
- What do we learn about people?
- How should we respond to this story this week?
- Who should we share this with this week?
How are you doing with multiplying groups and mentoring disciples that make disciples? Anything to share?
Let’s pray for each other as we seek to do the stuff in our communities! Praying for you all to seek for more persons of peace who want to hear more of God’s stories!
