“Who needs a doctor: the healthy or the sick?
Go figure out what the Scripture means:
' I'm after mercy, not religion.' I'm here to invite outsiders, not coddle insiders."



Matthew 9: 12-13, Msg
Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity.

“As as the Father has sent me, so I am sending you."

John 20-21

Being Known

The life of many faith communities is cloistered from the world they claim they want to reach. 
We live in Christian cliques, holy huddles, gospel ghettoes, and wonder why we aren’t reaching more people for Jesus.
The point of being “salt” is that we are applied directly to those areas most in need of a preservative to stop the spread of decay.
This is more than cultural – it is primarily relational.  No Christian should be separate from a non-Christian in need of the gospel. 
If you are, you are not sufficiently “in” the world.

Being Known

Paul's two guiding principles

How do you
want to be known?
Colossians 4:5
“Live wisely among those who are not believers and make the most of every opportunity.”

What is your S&L level over last six months?

Add friends like Jesus would


Avoid polarising topics
“People gravitate toward those who are willing to inspire, affirm and celebrate the highs and lows of life alongside them.
Superficial (Facebook) friends are rarely invited to the celebration or pity party.
Reach out – infuse light and salt into the life experiences of others.”

Helpful reminders (from ‘Sticky Jesus’)


Facebook is not the place to try to win a debate, but to provoke thought

People don’t want to be talked to, they want to be engaged with
People listen and respond to those they trust

Being other-centred is not natural or easy
