Sermons on “Mission”
Dr. Jonathan Sloan gives a sermon about a mission centered life, based on Luke 10:1-20 (link).
Call to Worship
We are called today to follow Jesus;
to carry His name far and wide!
We are called to bless people in His name;
and to be a blessing as we serve people in His honor!
As we gather this morning, let us seek faith, courage and knowledge to be true missionaries of Christ; to reach out to others every day of our journey through life.
Let us worship God!
Prayer of Confession
Dear Lord, we easily profess our faith when we are surrounded by other believers. We safely praise Your name when we worship on Sundays; but we fail to be outspoken witnesses when Your Word is most effective: with the lost, the unsure and those who cannot or do not see. We count on You to keep us safe from persecution, yet are too afraid to reach outside our comfort zones. Help us to truly believe that we are called by You to share Your Word; to serve others as You command. Help us trust in You as we boldly go into Your mission field: our community, city, state and world…
Assurance of Pardon
Jesus was crucified for leading people to the Word and He calls us to do the same; to follow Him, to turn from sin and live in His grace and mercy forever.
Thanks be to God!
