Human Bridges

This week we are going to get very practical, discuss first steps to joining this mission, and issue a challenge to the members of Northwest. The major idea in this sermon is that Christians should be human bridges who bring God to the world through both their words and their actions, and who also bring the world to God through their words and by revealing God’s love. If we are all talk with no action the world isn’t interested. But if we are only action without connecting people to God and the church then we are no better than people doing court mandated community service. Our faith, words, and deeds should bring God to the world and the world to God.

Your Kingdom Come

So far in the series we have introduced the idea that God’s desire to seek and save the lost is part of his larger plan to liberate and glorify the entire creation. In fact, the entire creation groans in anticipation of the fulfillment of this mission through his followers. Incredibly, God has chosen to do most of that work through the lives of Christians. So each of us has our own page in God’s story. But what happens when lots of Christians start catching a single shared vision of what God is up to in this world and start jumping on board. Jesus prayed that when God’s Kingdom came, his will would be done on earth as it is in Heaven. He taught that the Kingdom of Heaven is like salt, light, and yeast. They change and overcome everything they touch. This sermon will also use the example of Martin Luther King, Jr., his sermons, and the Christian movement he led in this country when Christians saw what God was doing and joined that mission.

My Page in God's Story

We believe that God is on a mission to redeem and restore the entire creation and it is His good plan for God's glory to be revealed through the followers of Jesus Christ. This means that if you could read the entire story of God's mission in the world, each page would tell of the life of a Christian. So what does your page in God's story look like? What does it say and who needs to hear your story and how can you creatively tell them?

The Mission of God

This Sunday will introduce the sermon series “Missio Dei: The Mission of God.” In John 14 we read that we are friends of Jesus because we know the business of the master, so this series will seek to help us know what God's business and mission really is. The bulk of the sermon will explore the mission of God described in Romans 8:16-29. God’s desire to seek and save the lost is part of his larger plan to liberate and glorify the entire creation. In fact, the entire creation groans in anticipation of the fulfillment of this mission. Incredibly, God calls on His people to join him in this mission as co-witnesses, co-heirs, and much more. God is on a mission. Will you join?

Finish this Sermon

In the beginning of this sermon, Bill Day talks about the Scriptural importance of laying on of hands and prayer when leadership is passed in the church. He then calls Kent up, lays hands on him, blesses him, and reads a passage Paul wrote to his disciple Timothy. After this, Kent talks about how the Tower of Babel shows us that when people work together with one language nothing is impossible for them. This is further reinforced in Acts 2 at the Feast of Pentacost when the Apostles proclaim the Gospel with one voice heard in all languages through the power of the Spirit. Now we too can do great things through the unity of the Spirit.
