Everyday Mission

The question is not if we have been called.  It is where will we be going?

Week 4 in our Everyday Church series was powerful.  All across the board.  It was such a pivotal focus for our church family.

Sermon Notes

  1. No place was insignificant, no obstacle was insurmountable (Matt. 9:35).
  2. Notice the shift from disciples to apostles.  The students are now missionaries (Matt. 10:1-2).
  3. Do not go to the nations, go first to your own people (Matt. 10:6).
  4. “Every Christian is a missionary or an imposter.”  -Charles Spurgeon
  5. “Some want to live within the sound of a church bell, I want to run a rescue shop with a yard of the gates of hell.”  -C.T. Studd
  6. “You have never talked to a mere mortal.”  -C.S. Lewis

What I loved about Scott’s sermon is that he blew up the misconceptions about missionaries.  Matt. 9:36-10:4 is normally seen as a call to international missions, and yet Jesus called the disciples to go to their own people before they ever went to the nations.  What clarity!
