Here’s an idea for missional living from missiologist Michael Frost. The acronym BELLS stands for Bless, Eat, Listen, Learn, and Sent. Give it a try. Even if you don’t think you could do this or wouldn’t be any good at it, you might be surprised how God uses us when we stumble in the right direction. As Mike Breen says, “anything worth doing is worth doing badly.” Absolutely.
Here are the instructions.
BLESS I will bless three people this week, at least one of whom is not a member of our church.
EAT I will eat with three people this week, at least one of whom is not a member of our church.
LISTEN I will spend at least one period of the week listening for the Spirit’s voice.
LEARN I will spend at least one period of the week learning Christ.
SENT I will journal throughout the week all the ways I alerted others to the universal reign of God through Christ.
