Missio Dei: The Mission of God–Potholes

June 24, 2018

 

THE SERMON

In the concluding week of "Missio Dei," Sy Huffer shares three different obstacles to the mission of God that every believer needs to be aware of.


THE DRIVE HOME QUESTIONS

Use these questions to further explore the theme of the message:

Pray: Sy said that the pothole of persecution can derail the church off of her mission unless she remains aligned through the discipline of prayer. What does this look like for us as a church? For you as an individual Christ-follower?

Speak: How can we prioritize the ministry of the word of God AND care for people who are hurting and in need in our church family? What can we do to make sure that we are engaging the lost by sharing the good news of Jesus with them?

Grow: Sy said that the mission of God is derailed by individual promotion and  elevating ourselves above others unless we practice the ethics of Jesus. Where has your individual promotion or selfishness derailed you from God’s mission?

Love: How can you better imitate the ethics of Jesus? Acts 4:32-37 gives a beautiful example of the church loving each other sacrificially. How can you take a concrete step to love people in the community and congregation?
