I have the privilege of attending the International Mission Board’s Impact Your World conference for a few days. I continue to be challenged by God’s heart for the nations. Yesterday, Ed Stetzer shared, “It is the responsibility of the people of God to be a light for the nations.”
For the past few weeks, we have been studying Matthew 5:17-48 as a church. A few weeks ago we explored Jesus’ teaching on anger. I had a conversation with someone regarding this passage and this great challenge from Jesus. Their perspective was quite pragmatic. “How will applying this to life help me?” That’s a great question. However, the reality is that as we shift our thinking to His way of thinking it positions us to be His light for the nations.
I cannot wait to see how God leads our church to impact our world in the days ahead!
