As I complete my MA in missional studies I wonder what God requires of me as far as my next step in the journey is concerned. Sometimes I feel frustrated that he only every tells me the very next step and not what the future holds. Although that does not stop me dreaming. I dream about a church where young and old meet together in harmony. Each appreciating the gifts, energy, and wisdom that they all bring to the body of Christ. I dream of a church that hungers after God. That steps out in faith even when the path is unknown. A church that loves one another, and forgives each other's faults and weaknesses. But most of all, I dream of revival and an openness to the Spirit of God. There is a fire that burns inside of me and longs to be let loose. In God's time I pray that revival will come to this land again and I pray that we will all be ready for it.
In the meantime, I wonder what I can do to engage people in the gospel message. Jesus is very much alive for me but for many he is a figure of the past. How can I be Jesus to those who have yet to find him? How can I preach the gospel in a real way that brings Jesus back from the dead for those who don't realize that he has been ressurected and lives today. I know that in my own small way I can do my bit but together we can make a real impact.
