I am really looking forward to seeing all that God does through this next series starting Sunday called Hook, Line, and Sinker. We will be looking at what it means to be called by Jesus as “Fishers of men”. Here are a few reasons I am so excited about these services:
1. It hits the mission of the Church head-on.
It’s easy for the Church to do a lot of things while forsaking the one thing it is called to do…reach the lost!
2. It shows us our personal mission as a part of the Church.
When Jesus called Andrew the first thing he did was find his brother Peter and bring him to Jesus.(John 2:35-42) Every person that is found in Jesus is called to find others and bring them to Him.
3. We will be equipped to fulfill the mission that Jesus has given us.
We are going to learn throughout the series not only why we should share our faith, but also what motivates us to share our faith and how we are able to share our faith.
4. It speaks to the fact that NO ONE is beyond the reach of Christ!
That the lost, the wounded, harassed, and bedraggled are the very ones Jesus came to save.
5. We are going to see that the life that attracts the lost is a life spent enjoying God, by both giving and receiving His grace and love through Jesus!
Those who have labored in the heavy yoke of legalism and rules based religion will hear the good news that Jesus offers us rest in His work for us.
Heart and Soul!
