Sermons about Mission
Luke 10:1-12 In his instructions to his seventy-two missionaries, Jesus not only empowers them for their task, but he gives them practical advice for successful evangelism. He warns them of the challenges and hardships they will face, while assuring them of divine anointing for their work. We would do well to reflect on the principles Jesus lays out in revisiting our own efforts to contribute to the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
Gospel Ministry requires living in paradox. On one hand, we boldly proclaim a message that is often not well received - the message that God alone saves sinful humans through the sacrifice of his own son. When Paul preached that message, a riot broke out. At the same time, while he was preaching this offensive message, he was also committing his heart and life to the people of Thessalonica. He loved them deeply. How could Paul stay bold in the message but tender in compassion? And how can we?
Jesus spent 30 years in relative obscurity to spend 3 years in tangible ministry. Jesus began His ministry by calling disciples. What we see in Christ is that making disciples is pointing people to "behold the Lamb of God". When we see the beauty of Christ, we make disciples who make disciples.
1. The Gospel of God ● The Gospel of God is Apostolic: proclaimed with a God-ordained authority and a multiple eye-witness credibility (v1) ● The Gospel of God is Prophetic: promised by God beforehand through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures (v2) ● The Gospel of God is Christ-centered: revealing and proclaiming Jesus Christ our Lord (vs3-4) ● The Gospel of God is Missional and God-glorifying: bringing about the obedience of faith among all nations for His name (v5) ● The Gospel of God is Life-changing and Personal: we are called to belong to Jesus Christ as His saints who are loved by God (vs6-7) 2. A God-Glorifying Church ● Recognize and appreciate the Apostle Paul’s ministry (vs1, 5, 8-15, 15:14-33). ● Embrace Paul’s gospel faithfulness and heed his teachings (vs8-15).
In Galatians 6:1-3, Paul calls the people of God to bear the burdens of one another when they catch each other in sin. Where we typically run to condemning the sin of others, or completely ignoring it, Paul calls us to a better way that remembers Jesus' ultimate bearing of burdens at the cross.

Sermon #7 from the "God with Us" series. Scripture from John 3:16-21.
As a local church, we can't possibly meet every need, but we can do our part. God is calling us to help bring His provision, healing, and restoration to as many as we can. We have a mission!
Believers must hear the gospel well and turn it into actions. The church James was speaking to was acting contrarily to equality found in Christ but now they must show mercy because they been given mercy.
