I am always amazed by the people interested in the Emergent and Missional church. They are young, old, midddle aged; everything. They are from big churches and small churches, cities and small towns. They come in just about every stripe you can imagine. The one thing they share in common is a great love for God and a deep desire to see others experience the grace, love, and goodness of God. Every person I’ve meet since I began to engage this conversation are missional, vibrant people of faith. They want to take their faith into the streets and be used by God.
Boy, I wish we had more of them. Man, do I wish I were more like many of them. I’m a good talker, these folks are great doers. I’m constantly inspired by people who are giving everything to advance the kingdom of God. And these folks aren’t just doing it for show or to be preachy to others. They are living out the full implications of the gospel. Their lives are a powerful testimony to me.
I think that if there were more Christians like these folks, there would simply be more Christians. My prayer is that more folks would get out of there pew and seek to be Jesus to their world. After all, that’s what following Jesus is all about.
