A Great Service at Vineyard NW
I was really blessed by the services today. Great worship, inspiring interview with a couple that has launched a ministry locally to show love with hope and specific actions to women in prostitution. It is called Woven139 after Psalm 139 that says "God wove us together in our mother's womb.
Van spoke on the development of their new Vision and Mission and I found them to be profound. It is based partly on the Lord's Prayer
They Kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
If my notes are correct, the mission is:
To establish a culture that welcomes the Kingdom of God on earth.
I like it. For the past few weeks I have been listening to Bishop Tom Wright teach on "When God Became King" and it is all about carrying on the Kingdom of God on earth. So, Van was hitting on all the cylinders that Bishop Wright had opened for me.
In the Kingdom of God we act like the early church. We are a beachhead in a fallen, broken society that desperately needs the healing and liberation of Jesus Messiah. We pray, we praise, we heal, we feed, we care, we love.
The Kingdom is here. We can't build it or enlarge it. God has already done it. We can seek it, love it, and live in it.
