The Joy Challenge: Friday 21st March 2014

Let us rejoice in our communities, our families, our households. In those we love so much that we're not just sharing Jesus with them but life as well. 1 Thessalonians 2:8. Life in all its splendour and dailyness, in the extraordinary and the humdrum. In husbands, wives, children, housemates, friends, neighbours, brothers, sisters. In those we share with, eat with, watch stupid films with, worship with, play in the park with, wash up with - those who see us at our worst and our best. Jesus appointed himself a community of underdogs to demonstrate the truth of the gospel: first to be with him; second to work with him. Mark 3:14. Let us celebrate those who we are being with today - sharing life in the Lord together that onlookers might look on and know that we, by our being and loving and sharing, are His.
