A Quick Review
Help people follow Jesus together
Love God, Love Others
Up, In, Out
Living on Mission like Jesus
Matthew 9:35 - “Jesus continued going...”
didaskō (Greek: διδάσκω) - teaching with the purpose of transformation.
kēryssō euaggelion basileia (Greek: κηρύσσω ευαγγελιον βασιλεα) - preaching the good news of the Kingdom.
Jesus understood that people needed healing and he provided it.
Matthew 9:36 - “when he saw the crowds...”
He didn’t overlook them or look past them. He saw them.
splagchnizomai (Greek: σπλαγχνίζομαι) - to be moved as to one's bowels, hence to be moved with compassion, have compassion (for the bowels were thought to be the seat of love and pity)
The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few
We Embody Jesus
We want to be like Him.
Witnesses for Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit
We can make a difference in a world of chaos.
The most important thing to remember is how desperately God loves you.
The world is full of individuals that God loves individually.
Do we see the world through God’s eyes or do we see faceless/nameless masses?
