Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

Why Jesus is a Great Place for Spiritual Seekers to Start Their Quest

BridgeAs we live our life on mission, seeking to join God in the renewal of all things, how can we help the spiritual seekers around us?  Where is the best place to start?

We first need to ask good questions and listen.  There is a reason that God gave us two ears and one mouth.  He wants us to take time to listen to those around us.  If we want to help those who are seeking God, we need to understand where they are coming from first, so we can build a bridge to where they are at.  This is why Paul became a Jew to the Jew, a Greek to the Greek and so forth.  He understood that it is our job to connect with people where they are at.

So where do we go from there?  As we build a bridge from our heart to theirs, we can then allow Jesus to walk across that bridge.  For as Bruxy Cavey has said, “Consider the possibility that Jesus Christ is in an unparalleled position to offer spiritual help for all people, regardless of their religious background. Think of it. A rabbi to the Jews, a prophet to the Muslims, an avatar to the Hindus, an enlightened one to Buddhist, the Son of God to Christians, a wise teacher to secularists, and a ‘friend of sinners’ to the rest of us. Is this a coincidence? Unlike any other religious leader, prophet, philosopher, or spiritual guru, Jesus alone is positioned to deliver a message to all people of all religions and no religion.”  So once we have built a bridge, Jesus is the perfect place to start, if we want to be of genuine help to spiritual seekers.

    I live in London and I find it extreamly difficult to create a missionary culture being surrounded by such a mix of people with all sorts of cultural and religious backgrounds. I think it is relatively easier to do it in US where the missionary culture is there already established all is left is just a personal choice of the individual.
