“It all started when…”

Living On Mission is a lifestyle, not just an event. I overheard two great stories recently that impressed this truth on me once again.

“I’ll not charge you the impound fee on your car if you go to church with me this Sunday.”

A Tow Truck Driver said this to a young man who was drug addicted and being arrested. That young man went to church and began a journey toward Christ that now, years later, has him planting a new church in Louisiana.

Thank God for On Mission Tow Truck Drivers!

“I’m not worried about the van. Just glad you are ok.”

A small church worked hard and bought a brand new van. A drunk driver ran off the road, hit and totaled the van. The Pastor of the church approached the young driver with forgiveness, concern, and prayer. That started that young man on a journey toward Christ that now, years later, has him planting a new church in Louisiana.

Thank God for On Mission small church Pastors!

Generosity, Forgiveness, Concern, Prayerfulness, Inviting. These should all be rhythms of life for the on mission Christian. Small acts of obedience in the moment, may seem insignificant, BUT KEEP WATCHING! Years from now, they may turn into somebody saying, “It all started when…”

  1. Encouragement requires intentionality. The stories you cite demonstrate that. May I do the same!
