Today, we are continuing our series called Devoted – Faithful Obedience in the Same Direction. You are called to do ministry right where God has placed you! This morning, Larry Van Hoose is sharing about our ministry in place.
Your ministry has to be contextualized to your place. The “place” matters.
“All discipleship is local – it is worked out in particular places, whether rural, suburban or urban, along roads and streets and avenues and beside real flesh and blood neighbors. We simply cannot work out our faith dislocated from the world around us.” – Eugene Peterson
Your family is more than who you think of as your family. Don’t draw back from these people in this place. Instead, push in!
If we want to know the will of God, we must be transformed. We must take up our cross. We must die to ourselves.
