You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house (Matthew 5:14-15 NIV).
1 Is the Loneliest Number
It takes COURAGE to shine for Jesus in our sphere of influence. And one reason our witness for Jesus is often so weak is simply because we’re trying to go at it alone. Being a single light in a dark place is not easy. So we end up dimming our lights or hiding our lights altogether.
2 Are Better Than 1
But all of that can change by simply following Jesus’ strategy of partnering at least 2 of His followers together.
Calling the Twelve to him, Jesus began to send them out two by two (Mark 6:7 NIV).
Jesus knew that 2 can in-COURAGE each other to shine in a dark world. We call these missional pairs Dare2Share Teams.
A Dare2Share Team starts with 2 individuals from an office or factory, a school or sports team, an apartment complex or neighborhood who intentionally shine Jesus’ love TOGETHER. Specifically, they partner together to live a Prayer-Care-Share life in their sphere of influence.
(The idea isn’t to keep your Dare2Share Team at 2 people, just to start with 2 people. Hopefully, it will grow from there.)
