Sermon Outline

Missions is the heartbeat of God.

Mark 16:15

2 Peter 3:9

Missions is not just a program of the Church, but the purpose of the Church.

Colossians 3:12

Zechariah 7:9-10

Matthew 15:32

Mark 6:34

Big Idea:  The spiritual life does not remove us from the world, it leads us deeper into it.

Missions and compassion are not programs of the church, they are the purpose of the church!

  1. Compassionate believers don’t give people a piece of their mind, they give them a piece of their heart.
  2. Compassionate believers don’t say, “How did you get here?” Instead, they say, “How can I help?”
  3. Compassionate believers understand that it’s costly, not comfortable, to obey and respond.

Big Idea:  Where someone is born should not determine whether they live or die.

Isaiah 58:10

We are not only giving them bread, but we are giving them the Bread of Life!

Jesus is the answer, and Jesus is the hope of the world!

When we give people Jesus, their stories shift from a hopeless ending to endless hope.

Everybody can do something!
