Don’t forget the living stones challenge
At the beginning of May we issued the ‘Living Stones Challenge’ – that over the next 12 months, everyone present find another ‘living stone’ to add to our number, so that in a year’s time our numbers will have doubled.
Over the years, Liberton Kirk has proved itself a good place to be. We have a variety of services (on Sundays and other days), a great sense of family, regular Alpha courses, and lots of ways of making people welcome, included, and involved. Together with other churches in our area, we offer God’s love in a variety of ways and projects to the needy, the outcaste, and the stranger. Finally, we have a thriving Kirk Centre, which is the ideal place to meet and get to know a huge variety of people from the local community. All that is needed now is for us to introduce them to Jesus.
How do we do this? Do we bribe, cajole, blackmail, demand, or trick people into becoming part of our worldwide spiritual family? No, we simply ask God to create ‘Kingdom moments’ – moments when His presence breaks into their lives.
So, to be part of the Living Stones Challenge, each one of us needs to commit to the following:
- To pray each day, that God will create a ‘Kingdom Moment’ for you to be part of
- And, when you sense that moment has come, to simply allow God to use you to point someone towards Jesus
“You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 2.5)
