Key Verse:

“Then (Jesus) said to them all: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me."
Luke 9:23 (NIV)

Made for Mission
By Pastor Jon Haakana

It’s no secret, people long for a life filled with meaning, a life that matters for something more than their own personal comfort and temporary success. Yet, as J.D. Greer has put it, there are few lies that cripple the mission of the church more than the belief that only a select few are called to ministry. We will begin a six-week series on January 27 in worship that is designed to unlock the amazing truth that every child of God was Made for Mission. As we journey together through the teaching of Scripture, there is no doubt in my mind or heart that our church community will grow in our understanding of what it means to surrender our lives to the radical calling of Jesus Christ, who whispers to every heart, “Follow me.”

Opening with an examination of the calling of Matthew—the socially outcast tax collector who wasn’t on anybody’s A-list—we begin to realize that God isn’t looking for all-stars, just ordinary people who are willing to join Him in an extraordinary mission to change the world through the message of the gospel. Together, we will discover the powerful message of God’s grace and what it means to share this message throughout every aspect of our lives, wherever God has placed us.
