From Pastor Tom - Finding Your Mission!

Did you know that Jesus has given us a mission?  He has!  It is not Mission Impossible but Mission Possible!  Who God calls – He empowers.  That means He empowers you and me for the mission He has for us.  The Mission Possible that God has given us is to tell those around us about Savior Jesus Christ!  This Mission Possible is called – Outreach.  Let me give you five urgencies of Outreach.

 1.  Jesus expects us to reach out!

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 (HCSB)

 Jesus has told us to make disciples – baptizing them and teaching them – as long as we are here on earth.

 2.  We were left here to share!

“How can people call for help if they don't know who to trust? And how can they know who to trust if they haven't heard of the One who can be trusted? And how can they hear if nobody tells them?” Romans 10:14 (MSG)

Somebody needs to tell the lost how to be found – that somebody is us!

3.  The lost are really lost!

“These will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." Matthew 25:46 (NKJV)

No matter how much we don’t want to think about it – there is a heaven and a hell.  People are lost if they don’t know Jesus as their Savior.

4.  Time is limited!

“Don't you say, ‘In four more months the harvest will be here'? I'm telling you to look and see that the fields are ready to be harvested {now}.” John 4:35 (GW)

There are people who are ready to hear the gospel today – if we would just tell them.

5.  Jesus is coming back!

For you yourselves have the knowledge that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 (BBE)

Jesus will return someday and it will be a day of accountability.  He will ask, “What have done with what I have given you?”

Your mission is possible!  Who God calls – He has empowered.  Share the good news with some one today.


May God bless you,

Pastor Tom
