day 2532: Bold Moves – Part 2: Taking It To The Streets

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”

Fast Company Magazine recently ran an article about 10 CEO moves that changed business. We can learn from each of them.

Coco Chanel in 1910 couldn’t figure out how to get people to recognize the fashion she was designing, so she did something others hadn’t done.  She started personally wearing her designs in the streets of Paris. First was a hat that others begin to see and ask, “Where did you get that hat?”.  Then later she did the same with perfume. Ever wonder why in the mall or on the street someone wants to spray you with their perfume?  We can thank Coco Chanel for being the first to take it to the streets. If it worked for Coco, it can work for us.  What do we have that we need to be taking to the streets instead of waiting for the street to come to us?

Jesus was very clear.  Our faith belongs in the street, not hidden in a church. Our streets can be our workplaces and when we live out our faith and are ready to share what God has done for us, then we are following what Jesus commissions us to do.  God has given us each our own “streets” to take to for Him.
