Jesus’s Mission Strategy

Posted: July 19, 2011 in books, community, discipleship, evangelism, missions, quotes

We can make community and mission sound like specialized activities that belong to experts.  Some people have a vested interest in doing this, because it makes them feel “extraordinary.”  Or we focus on dynamic personalities who can hold an audience and lead a movement.  Some push mission beyond the scope of “ordinary” Christians.  But the Son of Man came eating and drinking [Luke 7:34].  It’s not that complicated.  True, it’s not always easy – it involves people invading your space or going to places where you don’t feel comfortable.  But it’s not complicated.  If you share a meal three or four times a week and you have a passion for Jesus, then you will be building up the Christian community and reaching out in mission.

– Tim Chester, A Meal with Jesus, p. 15-16, emphasis mine
