The Mission

This November 2006, I plan to sell everything I have, give it all to the poor, walk into the city, and to reach out to others about God.

Enacting the words of Jesus:

Mathew 19:21
Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

Mark 10:21
Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

Luke 18:22
When Jesus heard this, he said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

Thanks for bringing this up, I often feel the same way.

Firstly I don't plan on standing on a corner with a Bible shouting at people. More I hope to sit with homeless people and listen and talk about their issues. If that then leads to talk about God and Prayer, then that is their choice, if not I'll just try to be a friend or walk on.

Secondly I do think evangalism is Biblical and I have a passion for God that I want to share with others.

I will do some more thinking about the issue.
