Why not schedule a “Jesus 12” in your church program?
–A “Jesus 12” is 12 unprogrammed minutes during a church service where the living, resurrected Jesus is allowed to be the leader and people are free to go to an open mic and share what Jesus puts on their heart.
–You could fit a “Jesus 12” in something like this:
Order of Worship
–Call To Worship
–Songs of Praise
So why not? Why not just give 12 minutes of your church service to Jesus? It’s really very simple. If no one talks, Jesus will make His presence felt in the silence.
Please don’t just write this off as a crazy idea. If Jesus is alive, as we proclaim, then surely He can manage 12 minutes. So give Jesus a chance to show your church what He can do. Why not give Him 12 minutes this next Sunday.
For the past 7 years, I have led a church where we have no program at all. We sing some worship songs and then we turn the meeting over to Jesus. It’s been amazing to watch the incredible things that He does in and through ordinary people. If you are ever in Nashville, come and see for yourself at The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., 37207 at 10:45 am.
Once you try a Jesus 12 in your church, please leave a report in the comment section of this post! Can’t wait to hear what Jesus does in your church!
