There are 4 tangible action steps (probably more) to be mindful of that will help give us a Kingdom mindset. After receiving some positive feedback on a recent message, I thought I’d post a brief summary of the acronym used in my 4 points.
Message title: Be R.E.A.L.
Relational in every opportunity | Constantly looking for opportunities to connect with others while we go about our daily lives. Look, and be attentive of those around us and be sensitive to what they are going through. The body of Christ is the Church’s best evangelism plan.
Excited about the things of God | When we take notice of all the incredible ways God is moving in our lives, it should show. And when excitement shows in us, others will often enquire as to what it is. Bingo….there’s an open door to talk about how awesome Jesus has been to you.
Active in and out of the church | Two parts here: 1. Do something to support your church home. Get involved, serve, give, lead. 2. Do something with a Kingdom mindset outside of your church. This helps to keep us from being an inwardly focused church and looking at the bigger picture of God’s Church around us.
Love for the lost | Pray for God to give you a deep, heart-felt compassion for the lost and for their needs. Why? Because compassion drives action.
You can actually listen to the full message from October 26, 2014 HERE.
Is there anything you would add? Or, which of these I’ve listed tends to be the most difficult?
