Jesus did two things...

  • Luke 5:31-32
Step #1 to Living on Mission –
  • Look around and see the people God has already put in your life who need him.
  • John 4:25 – Ask God to open your eyes!
Matthew 4:19, "...I will make you fishers of men."

  • Jesus is doing the main work and they are shadowing him.
  • Every one of these encounters happened in areas were Jesus' disciples actually lived.
Good Place to Start...Luke 5:27-30
  • This was no ordinary was a party with a purpose.
  • I believe God moves when you share a meal for the purpose of demonstrating Christ's love.
  • The most important thing for you to do is LISTEN.
All of us are dealing with something!! Matthew 9:36
  • It is easy to become hardened to the pain around us.
  • It is easy to start to see people far from God as the enemy.
4 Kinds of Crises...
  1. Crisis of Circumstances
