Weird: Mission – Day 5 of 5
A church building is just that, a building. It’s a tool used as a place of worship for Christians, and also used to serve the community as a whole.
The church, however, isn’t just a building. The church is a group of people. The church is one body. The church is holy. And the church has a mission – to reach others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
At the end of His time on earth, Jesus said, “…go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
It wasn’t a suggestion. Nor a simple recommendation. He commanded it. “…GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL THE NATIONS…”
Read: Matthew 28:18-20
Questions to Consider:
- What do you think it means to make disciples?
- Why do you think Jesus gave this command to the disciples as a group?
- How can you best follow-through on this command?
Heavenly Father, I just want to take the opportunity to close out this week by praising You for all You’ve done in my life! Specifically, I thank You for ____________________________.
I also want to pray for this weekend’s ministry project, “The Church Has Left the Building.” As South Ridge Church leaves the confines of our building, I pray that You will continually provide us opportunities to be the church to our community. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
