This blog post is part of a series of nine entries, each highlighting one of the nine Journey Guides. Each Journey Guide is a three-week discipleship study. They can be engaged in separately or as a series.
As we live incarnationally and serve missionally, the spiritual sensitivities of others will be awakened. We are called to discern those opportunities when God is actively engaging with people, and then figure out how to best come alongside them on their spiritual journey. A two-way flow of communication will help us better understand what their needs are. We can provide prayer, support, resources, connections to other people, or a listening ear as we respond to what God is doing. We can tell them stories about Jesus and about how he has changed us. As they decide to follow him, we’ll be able to help them take the initial steps of the life of faith.
Ask each other these questions to help one another journey along the way in this area:
- What spiritual needs are you aware of in those around you?
- How would you share the story of Jesus in your own words?
- What help can you provide as others begin to follow Jesus?

Live incarnationally and serve missionally, being and doing, I’ve never heard it quite like that before Bob. Further, the incarnational aspect is Attractional AND the missional is Apostolic. Both are needed for movements to be birthed.
