A Haunting Reminder

Posted: October 5, 2010 in Ministry

I’m not sure if there are verses in the Bible that haunt you or keep you up at night, but one in particular haunts me.  I’m not sure if it was Jesus intention, but it’s a nice side-effect.

The parable of the sheep and goats in Matthew 25 makes me wonder how our church can better serve the “least of these” in our community.  Let’s get serious, giving someone a bottle of water in the majority of places our community is just convenient random kindness, not real ministry.  We have to work hard to find people who have legitimate needs.

So, here is my proposal…

Axiom Church is going to give the people or teams that comes up with a ministry, project, or event that they are passionate about anywhere between $100-$1000 to fund their idea.  The hope is to inspire creativity, to reinforce passions, and help people serve the least of these in our community.  Giving Starbucks coffee to a the people who work at a law firm wouldn’t make the cut…just saying!

The sooner the better, so start inspiring good deeds for the Kingdom’s sake, in the name of Jesus, through Axiom!!
