What does “missional” mean? To some, it’s a term that is slapped on something within church life to make it sound cutting edge. To others, it’s a term used to distinguish themselves from churches they perceive as being social clubs.

In this message, missional living is a challenge and calling as defined in the Word within God’s plan. It’s a way of intentional living in the Christian’s life to make a difference around us and the world abroad.

Pastor Wynand DeWet from One Plus God Ministries shares from his heart, calling, and experience to call us to missional living with a passion I have not experienced in a long time. His family moved to the United States from South Africa five years ago and has a unique view into this life calling.

Take some time and invest into this message. Let your eyes be opened to some new areas of the world we live in. Be challenged to see cultures and struggles outside of our daily life. Get excited that if you have accepted Jesus as Leader and Forgiver in your life, that you are part of a massive and powerful movement of the Holy Spirit in your community and in the global community as a whole.

In the preparation of the message, I went back to some of my favorite verses concerning what the early church looked like including….

 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” Acts 2: 42-47
