BLESS

Five simple ways to bless those who are near to us.

God’s way of reaching and restoring the world is through blessing.

In Genesis chapter 12:2, God said to Abraham, “And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.” God blessed Abraham. He blessed him spiritually, relationally and financially. Not only did God bless him by receiving blessings, but he blessed him to be a blessing. God has called us to be a blessing to accomplish Jesus’ mission.

These intentional practices, empowered by the Holy Spirit, will enable you to participate in the strategy that God has invited you into to reach the world.  Do one of these missional practices everyday and you will see God move in powerful ways!

The acronym BLESS is made of up these five missional practices:

Begin with prayer
Each day this study will provide the opportunity to pray for those who are on your "MY 100" list who are far from God. Pray for daily opportunities to further BLESS those whom God leads you to.

Listen
Be slow to speak, but quick to listen. Ask questions. The best way to learn about someone is to listen to their story and what’s going on their life. By listening we are better equipped to pray and serve them.

Eat
This takes time, but this is an incredible way to build a relationship.

Serve
If you listen and eat with people, they will tell you how to love them and you will learn how best to serve them.

Share
When the time is right, now we talk and we share the Gospel and how Jesus changed our life.
