What is a Sentness exercise?

sentness

Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out,  (The Message (Heb 10:24)

Paul encourages believers to “Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.  Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.“(Colossians 4:5). However we are often blinded to the opportunities right in front of us. To remind us, we periodically practice Sentness exercises where we invite people from our church to share a bit of their life then we, as a church, declare ways they are kingdom workers.

Example:

fact shared – “I’m a lawyer”   spiritual truth – “you bring justice to this world”

fact shared  – “my family aren’t Christian”  spiritual truth – “the gospel has moved, from the beginning, from home to home. You may be the one that Jesus uses to bring new life to your family. Keep loving, serving, & praying for them and looking for opportunities to share the power of Jesus in your life.
