The Christmas season is one of the times in the year when non-Christians are most open to hearing about faith topics. Maybe it’s because all the decking of halls, jingling of bells, and drinking of nog puts them in the Christmas spirit. Maybe it’s because the Holy Spirit moves through our society in a more powerful way. Or maybe it’s both.
In any case, this is the type of year when people aren’t surprised to get an invitation to church. They might even agree to join you! And people aren’t surprised if you tell them what you believe about Jesus – they’ve been hearing about Him in songs and seeing Him depicted on people’s lawns all month. So this time of year, as you’re spending time with family and friends and exchanging gifts, we invite you to share the greatest gift of all: Jesus Christ. We invite you to take the MissionHub challenge.
Take a step with 5 friends
MissionHub is an app that helps you be intentional with your everyday relationships by taking the next best step to help others experience God. We invite you to choose five friends or family members and take the next step with them this Christmas season.
What that next step is depends on your friend and where they are in their faith journey. For some, that next step might be having a Gospel conversation, sharing your faith and inviting them to place their faith in Jesus. For others, that may just be checking in with them to see how they’re doing. It may be listening to them talk about their own beliefs, inviting them to church, or serving them in a way that demonstrates Jesus’ sacrificial love. One of the cool things about MissionHub is that it suggests faith steps based on the information you provide about your friend. So we’re asking you to follow these steps:
1. Download MissionHub if you don’t already have it.
2. Pray about with whom God would like you to take a next step.
3. Create contacts for five of those people in MissionHub.
4. Choose at least one step for each of those five people.
5. Between now and Christmas, take each of those steps.
6. Log those completed steps in MissionHub and choose a new step to take.
Of course, you can do these things without MissionHub, but we believe the MissionHub makes it easier to take these steps and to track what steps you have taken with which people. If you’re new to MissionHub, check out the below video. We would love to hear how your challenge went, so share in our Facebook Group!
