How do you discover what God is saying in a community?
- Listen to the questions
- Look for the needs
- Look for the spiritual dilemmas
Become part of the conversation. Become part of the solution. You are God’s hand extended. Walk with people and listen. Be their friend.
Imagine Jesus walking along the road. He walked and talked a long time. Then out of the blue he looked up and locked eyes with Zaccheaus. He picked Zaccheaus out of a whole crowd to have dinner with. And he didn’t preach, he had dinner. In fact, he let Zaccheaus serve him dinner.
Zaccheaus was changed by Jesus’ presence, love and caring – because He noticed.
Become part of the conversation, become part of the solution. Pray, and God will show you what to do next.
