Series: “Majesty – Maintenance – Mission – Mix”

Sermon: “Mapping Out Our Mission” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Read together Matthew 22:1-14

The wedding invitations are printed.

“Addressed to Whosoever Will”

Humanity waits for us to deliver the invitations.

Bridal garments are being readied. Heaven’s banquet halls are being prepared.

Our mission has never been more defined nor more important.

Matthew 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

Romans 10:15  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Mission #1 Wedding announcement. (Gospel)

1. Content of Announcement

John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

2. Conditions of Announcement

1. Accept that you are a sinner

    Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

    Romans 5:12“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”

    2.    Be willing to turn from sin (repent)

      Luke 13:5 Jesus said: “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”

      Acts 17:30 “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:”

      3.    Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.

      St. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

      Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us.”

      Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

      4.   Call on Christ through  prayer to accept forgiveness and welcome the Holy Spirit into your life. (RSVP)

      Romans 10:10 “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

      Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

      God’s Part

      John 1:12“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”

      2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

      Mission # 2 Make Disciples ( Growing Process)

      Matthew 28:19-20 NKJV Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

      John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

      Hebrews 10:25 “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

      2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”

      Mission  # 3 Teach and share what you’ve been taught.

      Mark 16:15 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

      1 Corinthians 9:16 “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!”

      Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

      One Response to “Sermon Notes 02/07/10: “Mapping Out Our Mission” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge”

      1. The message from Jesus is simple and is needed today more than ever.

        Acts 17:30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance:31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead.

        Today in our society it is accepted to blame others and not take responsibility for our actions when we do something wrong. It could be our parents fault or we may have a behavioral disability that says it’s okay. Another excuse is everyone dose it and it is not against the law.

        God word is the truth and we need his strength every day to see the truth with the power of the Holy Spirit.
