”If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you."Luke 10:6
This week’s Church Planting Movement principle is: Find People Of Peace. No matter where you are or where God sends you to work you will always find people of peace. People of peace open their natural relationship network to the Gospel and become a bridge for the Gospel into their community and their families. People of peace can also be people who are placed in your path to love and support you along your journey and in service to the Lord. People’s hearts are prepared by the Holy Spirit--they become leaders of others who begin to follow and obey. Ask the Holy Spirit to prepare the hearts of those who do not yet believe. Pray for God to direct disciple-makers to those He is drawing to Himself. Ask God to show you the people of peace in your life and in your path as you go out.
Ask God this week to give everyone involved in church planting movements a sense of their connectedness to the family of Christ as children of God. Practice listening to Holy Spirit daily for where He is sending you to prepare His way.
