Gospel movements are sustained by everyday leaders. Our pastors, teachers, seminary professors all have an important place in teaching, equipping, and building up believers to participate in God’s redemptive plan for the world. But it’s the everyday leader – the peacemaker – who builds bridges and opens up opportunities for God to reveal Himself to others. Therefore, every believer is an everyday leader in gospel-movements. The following is a message given to the Village Church of Barrington (Barrington, IL) on October 13, 2019 by Pastor Matt.
“The Kingdom expands when disciples are sent.”
In this episode, learn how Restoration Church seeks to be a training center for disciples that share in the mission of Christ as messengers of the gospel. In other words, we are “messengers on mission”.
- Do you see yourself having the same mission on earth as Christ was given, to share the message of the gospel?
- What role have you played in the direct or indirect expansion of the Kingdom of God?
- Have you experienced a season of apathy (indifference) to seeing the Kingdom of God expand?
- How might you participate further in your calling as a ‘messenger on mission’?
- How can you be more aware of God’s on-going work in the world?
- Where is the Holy Spirit sending you as a ‘messenger on mission’?
