You Were Made For Mission

You Were Made For Mission

John 17:18, Acts:20:24, Matthew 28:19-20

God is at work in the world, and He wants you to join Him. Your life mission is both shared and specific. One part of it is a responsibility you share with every other Christian, and the other is an assignment that is unique to you.

Your ministry is your service to believers in the Body of Christ, while your mission is your service to unbelievers in the world. God created you for both.
Our English word "mission" comes from the Latin word for "sending.”

I am made to do God’s work, not FOR God, but in HIS power, and for HIS purpose.

The church can become so involved in its local mission that it loses its eternal purpose

 I.     Our Mission is Directly Connected to Our Purpose

The Five Purposes For Which We Were Created:

·  To love him (Worship)

·  To be a part of his family (Relationship)

·  To become like him (Transformed into the image of His Son)

·  To serve him (Ministry)

·  To tell others about him (Missions)

·  The challenge is for us to tell as much as it is for the world to believe

II.     Our Mission is An Extension of Christ’s Mission 
Matthew 28:19-20

·  A legacy of faith can stop in one generation that fails to witness to the children.  

·  Being on MISSION means that you are committed to the purpose of Christ, which is the purpose of the church, therefore you should be committed to the church.  

III.     Our Mission Sets People Free  Romans 1:22-25

·  Idols and superstitions are not just third-world issues.

IV.     Our mission is a Great Privilege 2 Corinthians 5:18

·  God does not NEED us; He LOVES us and seeks to USE us to know the joy of being a part of His sovereign plan. 

V.     Our Mission Has Eternal Significance John 9:4

·  Jesus spoke more about hell than He did about heaven.

VI.     Our Mission Gives Life Meaning 2 Corinthians 5:18

·  Can we believe we were not just “BORN” but “SENT” with purpose?

·  If we fail our mission, we’ve wasted the life God gave us.

VII.     Completing Our Mission Will Bring Glory to God 
John 17:4  

·  The secret of being blessed by God is to participate in His agenda for the world.
