Livin' the Dream (Missions)
How do we define it? Serve others and tell the world about Jesus.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Jesus always meet physical needs before meeting their spiritual need. John 4 – Jesus talked about physical and spiritual water with the woman at the well. John 6 – Jesus feeds 5,000 plus with some bread and fish, and then says he is the Bread of Life. John 9 – Jesus heals a blind man and then gives him spiritual sight. John 11 – Jesus raises his friend, Lazarus, from the dead and then says he is the Resurrection and life.
Missions starts with four words: “How can I help?”
Tell the world about Jesus
Ephesians 6:19-20 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak. Cf. 2 Corinthians 5:18-20
Share Jesus’ story where God has you.
