Rick Warren says the local church is the hope of the world.
I fully agree. God works in many ways and according to His plan, but His plan has always been to work through His people. The church is His body called out of the world and called to go into the world with the Good News.
Martha and I are looking forward to being with you next weekend, and we are looking forward to serving with you as we seek to reach our community for Christ.
My sermon next week will deal with the fields which are ready for harvest and what we can do help bring in God’s harvest. The sermon will have to do with vision and opportunity as we seek to be the hope of the world to our community.
Although I haven’t yet put the sermon completely together I want to ask three questions and seek God’s answer to each one.
I want to know:
Who are we?
What does God want us to do?
How does God want us to accomplish His plan?
As we individually and corporately deal with these questions, we can make even more of a difference in the lives of the people around us. We all know people who need God and who know they need something.
As we move to the new school year, please ask God my three questions above. Let Him speak to you about who you are and what He wants you to do. Then, ask God what He wants His body of believers to do.
Let us commit together to serve Him in obedience and faith.
