Share what you know. Knowledge is of great quest today. Google is synonymous with “gaining knowledge” or “finding new directions and places.” We love to “share” secrets and be the person in “the know.” How important is it to be in the “know?”
We all love to be in the limelight of knowledge. You learn and gain knowledge to benefit self and hopefully help others. Sharing politics, weather, our life events, and other topics of great conversation are tremendous topics for the coffee shops of life. Any of those topics can be true and help others make better choices for their day and their week. Any of these conversations are bleak when compared to eternal life. Will any of these topics help us or others eternally?
The SHARE series is part of our TCAA’s focus in 2019. The Periodic Chart shows how elements of the earthly world relate to one another. TCAA’s Spiritual Periodic Chart exposes how God’s Word instructs us to arrange our lives. Just three elements: Prayer, Share and Give. If we practice and lay our lives on these three elements, we will have more focus, more simplistic lives, and more direction for each day.
We, first, are asking people to be saved through the witness of TCAA members. That is totally supernatural. Natural to God, supernatural to our daily lives. Only God gives the increase of souls (1 Cor. 3). Our church’s mission statement is Connecting Lost People to a Mature Walk with Jesus. Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost (Luke 15). So…we are here with the purpose to seek and to save that which is lost. This should be more normal (natural) to us because of the daily practice of being a “Kingdom Kid”—-and being obedient. Sharing Christ is an outflow of our prayer life.
Our prayers jettison us to SHARE. The totality of the Great Commission is discipleship (Matt. 28:18-20). TCAA will need room for more small groups to …connecting lost people to a mature walk. We need to pray for more small groups for young couples at TCAA. Our prayers need to cover small groups for parents. Prayer for small groups of all ages. A church needs to have a ministry and connection to families who have special needs children. TCAA will be praying for these needs. This calls us to share with other church members, and this also calls us to share with the lost in the world. Knowledge…the Apostle Paul said, “And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. 2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling” [1 Corinthians 2:1-3 ESV]. This automatically calls us to labor in prayer by seeking and knocking—-it’s asking and searching for the mind of God through prayer. It’s prayer labor. Let’s pray alone when alone. Let’s pray and share together when together (Luke 12:29-31). TCAA—-It’s Time to SHARE with others in the church and with a lost and dying world.
