“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!'” Revelation 7:9-10
Yesterday we celebrated Passport Sunday, a day of declaring our willingness to go wherever Jesus calls us. We want to be people that are committed to sharing the love of Jesus until all hear and know. The Church is God’s plan A for spreading His love to all people.
Throughout our morning, we talked about seven reasons why we want to be a part of the mission of God //
- World evangelization is possible
- We are the people of God on display for His glory
- People are hungry for Jesus, but the laborers are few
- We are motivated by God because He has already given us the power of the Holy Spirit
- Obedience is better than the sacrifice
- Eternity is forever, and the only way to get there is through Jesus
- Jesus is worthy
Everyone is made for relationship with Jesus, but many people still do not know about the very One they were made for. We want to be the people that respond and invite people into the greatest relationship they will ever know.
IN RESPONSE //
