mission-net is a pan-European mission congress for young people taking place at the end of 2011 in Germany.
I recently contributed a short article called You are God’s shop window! on the mission-net website, which aimed to encourage readers to live out the missional life that God requires of us. Here’s an extract:
Israel were to be a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. They were supposed to show the rest of the world what it was like to live in covenant relationship with God.
Israel’s lifestyle was missional – it was like a shop window for the world to look through. The nations were supposed to look at the quality of Israel’s life together and think, ‘Wow! Look at them; we want to know their God!’ (see, for example, Isaiah 2:1-5).
What about you and your Christian community? What is your ‘window’ like? When people see your life or your life together to they think, ‘Wow! I really want to get to know Jesus!’?
mission-net is a fantastic gathering. It was at a previous incarnation of mission-net (a TEMA confress) that I came to faith.
If you live in Europe, why not take your youth group along?
