On Mission: Here and Now

On Mission: Here and Now
March 10, 2018

I John 3:18

I. WHAT IT IS THAT MUST BE DONE HERE AND NOW
ALL PEOPLE NEED TO BE LOVED AND WE NEED TO LOVE ALL PEOPLE
A. THE need WE ARE TO MEET
B. THE TRAP WE ARE TO AVOID
WE MUST AVOID THE TRAP OF ONLY LOVING PEOPLE WITH WORDS AND NOT WITH DEEDS
C. THE one WE ARE TO HONOR

AS FOLLOWERS Of JESUS CHRIST, WE MUST LOVE PEOPLE “IN TRUTH”

PART OF LOVING PEOPLE IN TRUTH IS CONFRONTING THEM WITH REALITY!
ULTIMATE REALITY IS THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!
II. why IT IS THIS MUST BE DONE HERE AND NOW
A. IN ORDER TO REMAIN TRUE TO OUR CALLING AS christians
Matthew 28:18-20
B. IN ORDER TO REMAIN TRUE TO OUR CUSTOMS AS baptists

WHAT ALL IS INVOLVED IN OUR BAPTIST MISSIONS CUSTOMS?
1. A SHARED obligation
BAPTISTS VIEW MISSIONS AS A SHARED RESPONSIBILITY THAT IS DONE MOST EFFICIENTLY WHEN UNDERTAKEN IN COOPERATION WITH FELLOW BELIEVERS

WHAT ALL IS INVOLVED IN OUR BAPTIST MISSIONS CUSTOMS?
2. A SHARED illustration
BAPTISTS HOLD FORTH THE EXAMPLE OF A LADY NAMED ANNIE ARMSTRONG WHO WORKED TIRELESSLY TO PROMOTE COOPERATIVE NORTH AMERICAN MISSIONS ENDEAVORS
WHAT ALL IS INVOLVED IN OUR BAPTIST MISSIONS CUSTOMS?
3. A SHARED participation
BAPTISTS HOLD THAT EVERY MEMBER OF EVERY CHURCH SHOULD DO HIS OR HER PART TO SUPPORT COOPERATIVE NORTH AMERICAN MISSIONS ENDEAVORS

EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF EVERY SINGLE CHURCH IS BEING ASKED TODAY TO SUPPORT MISSIONS IN AT LEAST THREE WAYS:
a. BECOME INVOLVED THROUGH praying
b. BECOME INVOLVED THROUGH GIVING
c. BECOME INVOLVED THROUGH serving
A. IN ORDER TO REMAIN TRUE TO OUR CALLING AS CHRISTIANS
B. IN ORDER TO REMAIN TRUE TO OUR CUSTOMS AS BAPTISTS
C. IN ORDER TO REMAIN TRUE TO OUR CONSCIENCE AS WITNESSES
Philippians 2:5-11
“It is written: ‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.’ So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Romans 14:11-12
