A Kingdom Outpost.
Every gathering of believers should be a Kingdom Outpost. An embassy of the Kingdom from which shines the diplomatic efforts of each ambassador wherever they are strategically located. To do so they require ongoing communication with the King and then spread the message from the King.
It is not just done in words, it is done through caring characteristics and a desire to nurture those who want to embrace the message. That requires a relational dynamic reflecting unity in the Kingship. This is conveyed appropriately to each audience with the application of wisdom.
As this takes place so the values of the King are expressed. As this takes place so the presence of the King is made known. As this takes place so the lives of others will be impacted and the opportunity to make contact with the King can be extended. All by those ambassadors who recognise their responsibility as Kingdom Outposts.
This means, loving Father, that we should take our responsibility as the sent ones to be Kingdom Outposts very seriously. Help us to take on the privilege of being a part of the Kingdom Outpost, for your honour and glory, oh Lord.
For His Name’s Sake
