Jesus' mission on this earth, among other things, was to establish for himself a kingdom of people who were both resident in this world, yet strangers from it. In a time of shifting moral climates and competing stories, how are we to understand these two aspects of our being followers of him? Indeed, who are we to be? This session opens up the Gospels, responding to Jesus' invitation to be representatives of God's coming kingdom.
Before Jesus' ascension, He said to his disciples: "You will be my witnesses" (Acts 1:18). But this did not take place until God's Spirit descended, bringing to Jesus'people God's power, prompting, and presence. This changed the game, birthed the church, and made it such that others were added to their number daily. What does this look like for us in international Europe? This session will begin an answer to that question, focusing on being led by God's Spirit in evangelism.
