Further Than Some, Not as Far as Others


A good buddy of mine and I were surfing one day. As I was getting a little frustrated with some of my rides, he said something that I've never forgotten. "Chris, you need to relax and enjoy your time in the water. There will always be better surfers than you. And there will always be others who are not as good. You can learn from those who are better, so watch. And others will be watching you, so have fun."


I hated to think that people were watching me fall off my board! What he said was very profound, though, especially for believers. On our journey to be like Jesus, some will be further down the road than us; so learn from them. And there will be others not as far along, so let them watch and learn.Surfers


Jesus can use every one of us to make healthy disciples (Matt. 28:18-20; Hebrews 5:13-15), even the newest of believers. The Spirit can also use others in our lives to help us experience victory each day. Hopefully, you have someone to whom you acknowledge your drugs of choice and who is praying for your victory over them. If so, enjoy your time together! If not, I strongly urge you to ask the Spirit to bring at least one person into your life to form a Life Transformation Group.

A Humble Story of Missional versus Traditional
by Katie Driver      


...God is a seeking God - and is always at work (Jesus' words), so those of us who follow Him must be doing the same. That is being missional. It's not anything else - and trendy as the word may be these days - it is simply getting OUT THERE and letting God use you to touch people with His Presence.


That's missional, simple and organic.

In the home we stayed in, there was another visitor. This man had also been invited up by our hosts (as they were exploring what simple, organic and missional life and fellowship looks like, and had invited us up to share on it). They wanted this man's input about what we were sharing. He was familiar with the community, having come up previously a number of times to do the classic "outreach meetings". These are meetings with the usual mission protocol -i.e. billed with a speaker who is known for: healing, teaching, signs and wonders, deliverance, etc....
