Being an Everyday Missionary This Christmas Season
Depending on who you are, you may already be immersed in the Christmas season! I like to consider how many times I've heard "Feliz Navidad" to determine if we are in the Christmas season or not. Either way, Christmas plans are now being set in motion and soon our schedules will be full with family gatherings, church gatherings, school functions, special holiday traditions, winter activities, and Christmas parties.
During this holiday season, we, as a church, have carved out time to gather together to celebrate what Christmas truly means, God sending Jesus Christ. And part of celebrating this life changing truth means being on mission and helping point people to Jesus during this special time of year.
If you have adopted one of the suggested 8 Ways to be Missional into your daily rhythm of life, is there an opportunity to be intentional because it's Christmas? This might look like an invitation to our Christmas concert on December 16th, being hospitable and hosting a Christmas party or dinner at your home, gathering as a community group and considering a need in your neighbourhood that you could take on, introducing someone to church for the first time, or something as simple as wishing someone "Merry Christmas." We all have an opportunity to be on mission during this special time of year. Let's Love Like Jesus as we strive to be everyday missionaries!
