‘We’re on a mission from God!’

2 Oct

‘We’re on a mission from God’!

I’ve never watched all of the Blues Brothers (!) but somebody has told me that that is a line that the two men in dark suits say in the cult movie. ‘We’re on a mission from God’. Well whether or not they were, if you are a disciple of Jesus Christ you are on a mission from God. And that is what the book of Acts is all about.

In Acts we see Jesus give his commission to the Apostles and then every Christian who follows: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) That is our mission – there is nothing more important. We are to play our part in seeing the message of Jesus go to the ends of the earth.

Over the next few weeks at Church in the Bank come and think about how we can live out our mission from God together. Be encouraged and challenged by the fearlessness of the early Christians as they started the mission.

    So excited to get into ACTS! Just got back from FIT camp where Brendan gave us a great vision for mission and evangelism to our friends and family and the friends and family of our brothers and sisters in Fuel and Ignite! Looking forward to spending more time thinking and wrestling with these important topics!
