Christians need to be well diggers instead of wall builders. Create ways to engage others, not isolate yourself. – Pastor Dwayne Terry
Missional Living, 101
Missional Living, Part 01
Matthew 28:19-20 – Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Missional Living is a missionary lifestyle. It is living a life that intentionally targets and disciples others with the Gospel. They are well diggers.
A Lesson At A Well
John 4:6-7 – Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. 7When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?”
Christians tend to be temple builders.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 – Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
Matthew 16:18 – And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
- Jesus called us to the world.
