Passage: John 16:7-15
Duration: 24 mins 32 secs
Our world is filled with instantaneous entertainment, our homes are filled with noise and colour and our heads are filled with distractions. How can God possibly get in with all that is happening in and around us? Jesus promised us in John 16, that he would send his Holy Spirit, who would guide and speak to us. Speak words of truth and bring glory to Jesus. Our job is to make time in the business and distractions of life to hear Him speaking and obediently follow His voice.

There are three verses in the Bible that use the phrase "The Son of Man came..." Mark 10:45 tells us he came "...not to be served but to serve and give his life as a ransom". Luke 19:10 says he came "...to seek and save the lost." Luke 7:34 says he came "...eating and drinking" The first two what Jesus came to achieve; to give his life in service to save the lost. The third one tells us how he does this; fellowshipping with people around meals. As we reflect on the life of Jesus and point others to him, we need to follow his example and share a meal with others. In the simple act of sharing a meal, we show acceptance and love and the opportunity to share our lives and Jesus with others.

Today we start a series called "Surprise the World!" which is taken from a book written by Michael Frost with the same name. Over the next few weeks, we will be looking at 5 habits that Michael suggests will make us more effective in our outreach to the world with the gospel. Today we see the importance of living lives that cause others to ask questions and taking opportunities that arise from that, and is the way we all need to be living.
