Seeking to Make Our Great City Even Better

Seeking to Make Our Great City Even Better

1.  Mission

  • God is on a mission
  • Missio Dei = a sending God
  • Mission was not made for the church; the church was made for God’s mission – renewal.

2.  Motivation

  • We are sent.

This is an opportunity to…

  • Become more human
  • Give more than our best.
  • Invest everything with meaning.

3.  Mindset

  • To engage, we must Go!

Scripture:

Luke 10:1-9

1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4 Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.

   5 “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you. 7 Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.

   8 “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you. 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’
