'What part of 'Go' did you not understand?'

On Monday when we looked at Jesus call to 'go into all the world to make disciples and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you', made me realise how wrong the Church has got it. How often have we expected people to "Come", instead of us going? Well that just won't do according to Jesus.

Like we were saying yesterday, this is not a matter of saying "We've all got to go and talk about Jesus all the time to our friends and convert them". You've heard all that before, and it hasn't inspired you, has made you cringe, and isn't really what Jesus told us to do anyway. It's about catching the vision of God's Kingdom, God's plan to redeem and renew the whole created order through Jesus' life death and resurrection, and getting involved! Yes, of course conversion has a massive place in that, but just getting people to heaven when they die is not what Jesus was on about. So if you are hugely concerned about global warming, that is not a less spiritual activity, than thinking that you'd like to explore your Bible teaching gifts. God needs people in EVERY sphere of life (sound familiar? 'Go into all the world'..) to be his hands and feet and to bring his Kingdom there. As a cell, we're a community in mission together. What parts of our community can we engage with? What needs can we see in our community that we can try and meet in the power of the Spirit, to the glory of Jesus? That's the way God did mission. He got skin, and walked, and lived and worked in a particular community of people and brought hope and good news to it, not by throwing Bibles or gospel tracts at people from outside, but got stuck in and made a difference. That's what Christmas is all about!

Lets together keep thinking and praying about what living all of this out could look like for us for our cell, and for our church.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
