You can be sure that who ever gives even a drink of cold water to one of the least of these my followers because he is my follower, will certainly receive a reward.
Something really special happens on a Kairos weekend. There is a
transformation that happens. You get a glimpse of it during the
Closing ceremony on Sunday afternoon when the participants reflect
on the spiritual condition they were in when they arrived, and what
they found during the Kairos. They come lost, broken, rejected, angry,
faithless. They find unconditional love. Love from Christ, delivered by
You will see this transformation occur. It happens differently for
different people. For some, the person you met on Thursday night has
been replaced with a new spirit on Friday morning. Others will hear
“their” story given by a team member in a Talk, and they will be
transformed. Others will find a change through worship experiences
or through table discussion. Still others will find transformation in the
weekly Prayer and Share fellowship that forms after the Kairos.
The point is that change takes place – but that change is different for every
person. As a team member, it is best to avoid bringing any kind of expectation of
this transformation. Just be willing to be a tool of the Holy Spirit. You will not
transform anything. But through you, the Spirit can work miracles!
I came in here empty, lost, confused. I’m still confused. But I found some love here.
I’m not going to say that I’m going to be perfect after this, but there’s a spark there.
Our role, as team members, is to represent Christ to the residents. Listen, don’t talk. Love, don’t preach. Sit at the foot of the table, rather than the head of the table. No agenda. No expectation. Just be yourself, loving simply because
Christ loved you.
Transformation will occur. And, if you listen and love, you might even
realize that you too are being transformed!
What is God saying to me, through this word?
Who have I given a drink of Living Water to lately, in the name of Christ?
Prayer Focus: Lift up those who are spiritually thirsty. May God show them what they need and give then what they need...
