I recently did some research to find out what the word “pour” means. I liked how the King James Version (KJV) dictionary described this word. It stated, “bestowing or sending forth in copious abundance.” To gain a better understanding of this description, I broke it down as follows:
- Bestowing – To present as a gift
- Sending Forth – To cause something to be heard
- Copious – Yielding something abundantly
- Abundance – A very large quantity
Jesus said “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age,” Matthew 28:19-20 (New Living Translation).
Simply put, we, as Christians, are to: go, present Jesus Christ as the gift, speak loudly so that the world can hear, making sure that what we present yields an abundance of disciples! And the greatest assurance we have is that Jesus will be with us always.
One way the S.A.L.T. Connection is “pouring” is our new partnership with Blake’s House – a non-profit organization that seeks to give young women facing homelessness a chance to live a new story. The SALT Connection will provide biblical education, and spiritual mentorship during their time at Blake’s House.
As we pour into these ladies, our goal is to give them spiritual insight to live an abundant life. We are doing this by:
- Conducting weekly Bible study classes
- Building new relationships
- Helping them navigate life using biblical principles
What does “pouring” look like in the Christian life? It means to give of ourselves in such a way that it will influence how others want to live for Jesus. It is about taking what we have (our knowledge and experience of Jesus Christ) and depositing it into the life of another; so that they can live abundantly.
How do you plan to pour? One way is to donate to the S.A.L.T. Connection to help us continue our vision of pouring God’s Word into women so that they can pour into other women. You could share the word of Jesus Christ yourself to help make disciples as led by God.
Tell us how you plan to pour!
