It's Just Where I Live - Part 2 of 2
Mission Field Neighborhood - week 2
The practicality of living out your faith in your work is something we talk about on iWork4Him all the time. Living out your faith where you LIVE, now that is a whole different conversation. Last week, we talked about the tool Bless Every Home as a way to impact your neighborhood by praying and getting to know your neighbors. Back recently, we interviewed Kathy Branzell from Love2020 and discussed practical ways to get connected in relationship with our neighbors. We need to be intentional because most of us suffer from Summer Faith Drought Syndrome, and seem to “check out” from faith while we are on vacation.
In case you can’t listen to the podcast of the show, here are some of the things we suggested in connecting with our neighbors over the summer:
* Host a potluck
* Invite neighbors over to dinner
* If you are going on a day trip, invite some neighbors to come along
* Go for walks and be relaxed so you have time to meet and talk with people
Really, it just starts with the intentionality that your neighbors need to meet Jesus too and they can meet Jesus through you. Don’t turn off your faith this summer, turn it on in your neighborhood. God planted you there on purpose!
Who is up for a potluck? I am!!!
