40 Days with Jesus - Part 8: His Mission, My Mission

June 18, 2017 Pastor: Ryan Rice Series: 40 Days with Jesus

Scripture: Matthew 28:19–28:20,

His Mission

Jesus said his mission was to give life.  After the resurrection Jesus declared His mission for the disciples to carry throughout the world.  He commanded them and us to proclaim the truth that Jesus Christ.  That He offers us forgiveness of our sins and a new life.  This is a mandate and not an option.  In John 10:10, Jesus said His came to give life and to give it abundantly.  This is the message we are to bring to the world.

My Mission

In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus gave us a mission.  He said to make disciples.  I we don’t continually reach out the others the mission will die.   The mission is not just about doing good works.  It must include sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.  A lot of people and organizations do good works that help many people, but the church must also share the Gospel message of forgiveness and salvation.

We need to accept the mission to be a witness for Jesus Christ.  Our mission can be local, regional or global to bring the gospel to those who desperately need it.

Our mission needs to reach out to our children who will rise up to carry on the message.
