On Earth as It is in Heaven 6

As a church family, our hope is for our lives to be an active prayer for God’s kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Our goal, as a church family, is for all we do to contribute to fulfilling this hope.  Each week we plan to explore some aspect of our life and ministry in the light of this goal.

(continued)

We are called to:

Share Christ and His Kingdom with others.

God wants us to be messengers of His love.

Part of the job description for each believer is that once we have been born again, we become messengers of the Good News to others. 

Paul says, “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God’s mighty kindness and love” (Acts 20:24). This is an important responsibility of every Christian. 

Second Corinthians 5:19-20 says, “God was in Christ, restoring the world to himself, no longer counting men’s sins against them but blotting them out.  This is the wonderful message He has given us to tell others.  We are Christ’s ambassadors.  God is using us to speak to you.”  We are to plead with unbelievers to receive the love He offers—to be reconciled to God. 

We each have a mission on earth and part of it includes telling others about Christ.

“Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.  But who can ask Him to save them unless they believe in Him?  And how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him?  And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells him?”  Rom. 10:13-14
