Mission Week: The Follow Up

So it’s been just over a week since Mis­sion Week end­ed, the Life course has begun and things still seem to be quite encour­ag­ing. The Life Course had sev­er­al peo­ple attend with about 5 non-Chris­tians going along, which is encour­ag­ing and more than last years Life Course which we ran. Whilst this is good that events are com­ing along, I can’t help but feel that some of the mem­bers of the CU did not catch the bug, that they did­n’t quite get the full mean­ing of

And Jesus came and spoke to them, say­ing, “All author­i­ty has been giv­en to Me in heav­en and on earth. Go there­fore and make dis­ci­ples of all the nations, bap­tiz­ing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spir­it, teach­ing them to observe all things that I have com­mand­ed you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Matthew 28 v 18 — 20

This has been some­thing that real­ly struck me on the build up and through­out mis­sion week. It real­ly is our call­ing, every­ones, to go out there and tell the world about Jesus. It’s one thing that I keep point­ing out in my cell, and which I point­ed towards in the last prayer meet­ing of Mis­sion Week. It’s not just a week long thing and then we don’t have to do it any­more, it’s con­tin­u­al and we should always be look­ing to do it.
For­tu­nate­ly I am not the only per­son who felt this, the CU exec and a few oth­er mem­bers of the CU feel this and they are look­ing to run events and so on through­out the year. It seems as well that the Stu­dent Union here is also keen for us to con­tin­ue to do events. They have giv­en us the biggest bud­get out of all the soci­eties here at the Uni­ver­si­ty, that is just so amaz­ing, par­tic­u­lar­ly when you hear about the events and going ons at oth­er Uni­ver­si­ties (Bir­mgin­ham, Exeter to name a cou­ple). God is real­ly work­ing here, and it’s just amaz­ing, there is such a Mis­sion Team here, if only we can get those mem­bers who did­n’t attempt to bring friends along, or who don’t feel as com­fort­able talk­ing about the gospel, to learn that they don’t have to do it them­selves, that Jesus is there with them and that he will use the sit­u­a­tion and con­ver­sa­tions they have.
