New Sermon Series from Luke and Acts
It’s easy to talk about what we’re going to do, isn’t it? Easy to create mission statements and visions for our future. But it’s harder to pull it off. Business leaders know that even the best strategy can’t be planned without considering how the strategy will be carried out. Execution is key.
Jesus, the Savior of the world, had a mission and strategy with it’s source in the love of the Trinity. And that strategy involved passing the mission on to his disciples. “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Sprit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:18-20
The early stages of this mission are lived out in the pages of the book of Acts. From the coming of the Holy Spirit, to Paul preaching “boldly and without hindrance” in his rental home, the gospel expands according to the command of Jesus to make disciples.
The mission continues to expand today, in our homes, our communities and cities, and all over the world. We have received the same command to make disciples. It’s the mission of our church — of all churches.
As we journey thought Acts, we’ll be looking at not only the message, but the methods. And we’ll be asking God to compel us, by his love, to execute the mission. To be specific, purposeful, and dependent on the Holy Spirit.
But this series won’t be the typical guilt-trip about personal evangelism. As we follow the expansion of the church, we’ll see how God intends for us to work together — “whole-church” evangelism — like a football team, not a tennis team.
