Amid all the talk of Brexit and the implications for the UK, For the church it is it not a time to be insular but a time to look out to the harvest fields and pray. A time to pray that the Lord of the harvest will raise up workers to go into the field. Because the fields are ripe unto harvest.
It was not a clear day Sunday but from where I was staying I could just see mainland Europe’s most westerly point.
I was reminded of my personal mandate to walk across Europe sharing the good news of Jesus. Nothing has changed. Public opinion may change, governments may change, but the word of God is eternal. I am convinced that so called post-Christian Europe is ripe for a move of God, Whether they want it or not.
As we walk through Nations, praying, declaring God’s plans and purposes we are also sowing the seeds of his word. The cherry on the cake is seeing men and women come to faith in Jesus as we walk. As far as I am aware 7 people came to trust in Jesus as I walked through Portugal.
As a postscript on Sunday evening I found myself sharing the good news of Jesus in French with two guys in an art gallery. You really never know what is going to happen next.
As I walked through Portugal one of our associates David Kovacs from Hungary was walking with a team in Cumbria England. I find that so encouraging. So with that in mind we continue walking across the continent
believing that Jesus is the hope for the nations. So with that I believe there is still very much an open door to Europe which includes the United Kingdom in the purposes of God.
