The other week I had a dream I knew was from God. Last night I shared about it with my youth at HKC as they were main characters in it.
In my dream a whole bunch of us were in a massive hotel. It had many floors and elevators and stairs. We were in a room with huge glass windows and glass French doors that showed us the rest of the hotel. It had a library and big tv and comfy sofas. While we were hanging out the hotel hallways started to fill with people. Some were faces I knew and some were strangers. Then there was a noise. We looked out the windows to the outside and into the hallways and the hotel was been taken over by daleks.
The Daleks were going round saying EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE and zapping people. We moved the couches and shelves over the doors and barricaded ourselves in the big safe room. But we realized that the people in the halls were in danger and at opportune moments we would pull the couches back and then rush into the halls warning people and getting them to come into the big safe room with us. In the big room they could read and rest or watch a movie. More and more people joined us and then more and more people were going into the hallways and up the stairs and rescuing people.
RESCUED PEOPLE RESCUE PEOPLE
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin,[e] so that we could be made right with God through Christ. 2 Cor 5:19-21
Being a rescuer starts from the inside out. It starts with making rescuing a priority. It starts with aligning our heart and goals and identity with His heart, His goals and His identity.
It starts with knowing that our mission is to know God and make Him known, that “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost” Luke 19:10. Like really knowing.
