Occupy: fill a space.
Your street needs you. Your workplace, swimming training, etc.
God is positioning you to get on your street. We have different streets and that’s cool. Then we reach more people.
God has called us to a street, but are we back tracking and going down side streets to avoid our street?
The servant returned and told his master what they had said. His master was furious and said, ‘Go quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and invite the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.’ – Luke? ?14:21? ?NLT??
Do you have the same heart as God? Do you have time to invite people to church? Kingdom is priority.
Be planted in God’s house.
When you are planted you are fruitful. Your fruit will speak for itself.
Occupy full of hope
When you are full of hope you can give hope.
The thought of my suffering and homelessness is bitter beyond words. I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss. Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!” – Lamentations? ?3:19-24? ?NLT??
Hope rubs off. Hope only comes from Jesus. When it becomes life and death people will want hope.
Occupy doing good
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. – Ephesians? ?2:10? ?NLT??
Let’s be a church that does good works with generosity. God has been good to us.
It’s amazing who will turn up on your street. The paralysed man by Gate Beautiful. Blind man healed by Jesus.
Yet more and more people believed and were brought to the Lord—crowds of both men and women. As a result of the apostles’ work, sick people were brought out into the streets on beds and mats so that Peter’s shadow might fall across some of them as he went by. – Acts of the Apostles? ?5:14-15? ?NLT??
