Day 29 – Being a Bridge

By June 2, 2016Day 29

There are six streets in our Fairway Farms subdivision.  The lots are not large, most are not even a 1/4 acre; so in less than a quarter mile square, there are 190 homes.  As I’ve mentioned, it’s a beautifully manicured neighborhood, with neighbors who take pride in their homes.  If I am praying, “Lord, may your kingdom come, and your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven;” then, what is my thought process toward my neighborhood.  Hasn’t God providentially placed us within this neighborhood to be a kingdom bridge.  The glaring question ought not be, “Does this home cheer for MSU or UofM?”  The glaring question must be, “Does this home know Jesus as Lord?”  And, “What can I doing to facilitate their encounter with Christ?”  Did you see the bridge within these last two questions?  “Lord, give me eyes to see where the kingdom isn’t; and a heart that’s willing to make a difference.”
