Wherever You Are, Start There

Are you ALL IN? What does it look like when we serve our community and serve God?

How many ZIP Codes does your county have?

I live in San Diego County and it’s a big one — roughly the size of Connecticut. We’ve got more than 180 ZIP Codes here!

I’ve been talking to my congregation, the Rock Church in San Diego, about being “all in” when it comes to serving God. In November I suggested that we all choose a ZIP Code and commit to praying regularly for it. Hundreds of hands went up. The next day, we posted the idea on our church’s Facebook wall, and within 24 hours, a whole lot of people responded and named which ZIP they will be praying for. We will continue to encourage this until every square inch of San Diego County is covered in prayer.

This is a simple tool, and one you can use, no matter where you are and what role you fill. The point isn’t the Zip Codes, of course. It’s that God calls us to be ALL IN, wherever we live. Praying for and serving our local community. Now. Wherever you are, start there!

How about you? Are you ALL IN? I challenge you to see what God does
