Last week I talked about the Christian bubble, how it keeps us from the very people Jesus wants us to know and love. The bubble afflicts pastors, too, in fact most of us are in an airtight bubble as I discovered when I became a new church start pastor. I’m not sure I even knew that Christians could break out of the bubble, much less how. Yes, I hang out at Starbucks and go to Chamber meetings, I work out at the ‘Y’ and soon I’ll be golfing at a local golf course. But making myself available to be in relationship with others is one thing, but really being available, these are two completely different things. I’m not a part of the lives of the baristas at my local Starbucks other than seeing them when I stop by. But they are people with needs and hurts just like everyone else. So what if I spent time in prayer asking God to show me how I can show the wonder of the love of God to the folks we see every day, whether it’s our neighbors or co-workers or those we sometimes don’t even notice. You know who they are. The barista and the grocery store clerk. How about the person at the dry cleaners or your accountant. The attendant where you park or your doctor. Maybe the clerk at the mini-mart where you get your snacks or the one where you buy gas. What if God showed you some way that you could help one of these people actually experience him through you? Would you do it? Would you let the whispers of the Holy Spirit become reality in someone else’s life through you? Would you risk breaking out of the bubble to join Christ out where the Christians aren’t? I’m committing to do it and I’m asking the folks of The Well to join me, to apply ourselves to hearing the still small voice of God and actually doing what he asks. Imagine it. It might just change the world!
