Ablaze Movement Begins at Trinity

Ablaze Logo

This Sunday was the kickoff to the Ablaze movement.  The Goal is that our hearts would be “ablaze” with the love of Jesus Christ, a love that sends us out into the world. 

 The first mission response is “Learn.”  Each week Trinity will concentrate on each response using personal meditations, sermons and Bible study.

 The first sermon was on the story of the disciples walking to Emmaus after the resurrection of Jesus (Luke 24).  Jesus revealed himself to the disciples through teaching from the Word of God.  This caused the disciples to say, “were not our hearts burning within us while he [Jesus] talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”  As we learn more about Jesus Christ, our hearts burn with His desires and His mission for the world.

    Week two we are focusing on Pray. An appropriate connection to the first mission response of Learn. As we LEARN what matters to God, we pray that desire of God into our lives. “Thy Kingdom Come” means more that we share God’s kingdom and the way he established the reign through Jesus Christ then asking God to bring about the end of the world. Sometimes it is more important to ask – for what do we pray, for whom do we pray?

    Week three focused on the mission response of Giving. Lutherans have historically done very well in this respect to mission (check out http://www.lcms.org – world missions) and yet now is the time to begin to view our nation, our neighborhood as a mission field. Outreach is expensive because you are investing in people who may reject the love of Christ that you give.

    Week Four focuses on Tell – what is the story of Christ and what is your story? Whenever we reveal our life with another we reveal the story of Christ as well. Telling is sharing that story with another in a simple way.
