Summertime

A feast

Muslims in the U.S. conclude their month-long Ramadan fast today, with a feast called Eid al-Fitr. Friends and families will exchange greetings and gifts and eat a lot of special food today. Oftentimes, Christians join their Muslim neighbors in this feast. It’s a good time to share food and fellowship together and to inquire about any spiritual insights your Muslim friends gained during their fast.

Prayerfully ask about visions and dreams, about questions that arose in their own minds as they fasted, about longings or desires stirred in their souls. Listen well to your friends’ answers. Then let God speak truth through you. This is a season of great spiritual openness among Muslims. Make the most of the time!

Word of truth

Bible Study And CoffeeSingle women were told they would only get to heaven through marrying and having a child. Married men could preach from the pulpit only if they were not wearing jewelry – not even a wedding ring. Lives were impacted in communist Romania by well-meaning Christian leaders who’d never received training in how to handle God’s word with accuracy. Entire doctrines had been built on single verses, taken out of context.

Entrust entered the scene, bringing training in how to rightly divide the word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15). We continue to equip men and women in ministry with skills like inductive Bible study and exegesis, because we believe the Bible is our authority, the whole Bible and all of its counsel. Pray we remain true to scripture and faithful to its counsel in all we do as we equip church leaders around the world.

Invest in young lives

Invest in young lives. Make disciples. Impact the next generation for Christ. And have fun at the same time. It’s a ministry opportunity full of endless possibilities.

It’s called … summer. If you get to be home with kids this summer, if you work with kids this summer, if you have more evening and weekend time with kids this summer, you can be a discipler. You don’t need a formal program. Ask good questions while you’re at the pool. Share something you’re learning from the Bible as you go for ice cream. Ask if anyone sees connections between the garden and their lives. Find life lessons in team sports.

Your kids (or the kids you work with) are young disciples. Let this summer be a summer of real-life discipling!
