Join His Mission means engaging people in the city. As we celebrate our week in Athens at Vacation Bible School, we are drawn to how Christ first led Paul to this beautiful city. Paul felt the Athenians’ bondage to idolatry despite their glorious past and resplendent architecture. He engaged people in the marketplace, sharing about Jesus and the resurrection. When brought before the city council, he spoke of the living God, revealed in Scripture, whom they did not yet know. Joining God’s mission stirs our hearts to talk with those around us. We must be observant to the culture and willing to listen. We must always build bridges so that others might run to Christ.
