When X marks the spot mission happens.
And when mission happens not only is the love of Jesus shown to a people who need to feel his presence, but our own soul is fed. And what usually happens when we help other people is that we see Jesus, if we’re paying attention.
And anytime we see Jesus something happens within us that crates a desire to love. And when the desire to love infiltrates our heart and mind we are empowered to move closer to the Kingdom of God, and when we move closer to the Kingdom of God that spot where the lines of the X cross becomes a power for change…change both in our own heart, and in our effort to bring the Kingdom a bit closer to reality in our daily world…
The point of all we do as followers of Christ is the Kingdom of God that Jesus said has come near us. If we think anything else we’re missing the point of the Gospel.
