As summer officially kicks off, please begin praying about the relationships the Lord may give you the opportunity to build. Not sure where to start? Look across your driveway, at the parents who drop their kids off for VBS, your children’s sports coaches, your hiking buddy, the person across your cubicle, your friends and neighbors -- how can you be a bridge for the Gospel?
As God brings people into our lives, consider how you can go beyond conventional niceties to actual relationships.
You might wonder how, though. You make a friend … and then what?
We want you to challenge you this summer to engage with the non-believers that the Lord has placed in your circle.
One idea is to invite them to a baseball game! MCC has access to discounted tickets to an Isotope Game on July 22nd. Sign up your family and non-believing friends or family and attend together! What a great way to witness to a new family……through generosity, sportsmanship and fun! The deadline to sign-up for those tickets is July 16th! Invite someone today!
If a ballgame isn’t a good fit, you might consider a movie. Plan a time to meet with the family for a matinee and pizza afterward!
A little more bookish? Consider starting a book club!
Or, or, or, there are so many ways to initiate opportunities!
You are fearfully and wonderfully made and your hobbies and interests are specifically designed to open avenues of intentional relationships where you can share the Good News of a Great Savior!
But it starts with prayer, so please be in prayer now! Who knows how the Lord may use your personality to impact eternity? Let us know, too, how we might pray with you. And may God transform you and be glorified!
