Title: Fulfil God’s Mission For The World
Series: Church On The Go
Text: Romans 15:15-22
How can we participate in God’s mission for the world?
Paul saw himself as a minister of Christ who was given the “priestly duty” (Romans 5:16) of sharing the Gospel of Christ to the Gentiles. Believers are also called priests (1 Peter 2:9). How would seeing yourself as a minister change the way you make decisions or realign your priorities?
God’s grace powered Paul “to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles” (Romans 15:6). Jesus also equipped ordinary fishermen to be His disciples. What would help you to depend on God to do what He has called you to do?
Paul’s lifelong ambition was to “preach the Gospel where Christ was not known” (Romans 15:20). How is Paul’s ambition different from the ambition of those who are hungry for success or fame in the world? What can we learn from Paul’s ambition and apply it to our own goals?
What is holding you back from going on a Short Term Mission (STM) trip? Will you pray and fast with your mentor to ask God to guide you in exploring a STM trip in the next 12 months?
