4 DAILY PREPS FOR A HINDU WORLD

23. 4 Daily Preps For A Hindu World Copy

When you look out the window or through your www lens, scanning your neighborhood, community, even the pews of your church, what do you see? I see a Hindu world. Especially in the US.

Hindus believe in many gods. They’re functionally astute, relying on one or the other depending on the situation. No hierarchy needed. Just performance and unique applicability.

The US is a Hindu nation. In fact many of those who worship with you are de facto Hindu.

Sacramental entrepreneurs — men and women seeking to start new in order to reach new people for Jesus — who grasp this reality tend to be better prepared to face the facts of a post-Christian culture. They live with less shock and more joy, not because of the false beliefs but because they know what to do about them.

Let me suggest 4 daily preps for those of us tackling a Hindu world.

1. Recite. As in “I’m a baptized son/daughter of the King!” Your baptism brought the mysteries of Jesus to bear in your real time and space. It secured your identity. You’re not Hindu. You believe in one, true God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. One true God into whose name you were born in baptism. Remember that. Daily.

2. Read. As in God’s Word. Read some portion of it. A verse, a paragraph, a page. Let it soak in and seep in so that God’s Spirit steeps in you. Strong and stout like Irish breakfast tea that puts hair on your chest. You’ll be surprised how this Word will come to mind over the minutes and miles ahead.

3. Reflect. As in pray over your day’s appointments and people. What opportunities to start new for Jesus will be provided to you? New insights, new thinking, new relationships. Who will Jesus allow you to disciple today? Will you be looking for that — purposeful, intentional?

4. Respect. As in All. Everyone. Hindu or hedonist. Protestant or pagan. Catholic or communist. Matters not the country or color or cause. Prepare for the day intending to show respect to everyone you meet. Be Jesus. Better yet, let Jesus be through you. It’s the sacramental way.

It’s a Hindu world out there, friends. It’s a world that needs new ministries reaching new Hindu people. Because Hindu’s not where it’s at. It’s at Jesus.

Which R do you need to sharpen? Which one do you need to start? Put your thoughts in the comments.
