The Great Commission
David Krueger • Sermon • • 1,366 views
Last Sunday, I began a series of messages on The Great Commission. Southern Baptists, well over 100 years ago, decided that the Season of Advent was the very best time to promote missions giving. It was Lottie Moon herself who suggested that we take up an offering at Christmas. The offering was officially…
THE POWER OF THE GROWING SEED Mark 4:26-29 26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; 27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. 28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade,…

God calls and sends out his people into the world. All believers are called to share the good news of the gospel, though some are specially commissioned by God, confirmed by the church and compelled by the gospel message to missionary service.
Opening: Have you ever been stuck before? My son Zander has a way of getting himself into places that he can’t get out of. The most common is in the crib. He can somehow get his leg or arm through the bars, but he can’t seem to get them back out. Maybe you’ve been stuck in traffic. That is absolutely…
Jesus defined the church’s mission in Matthew 28:19a . Mt 28:19a Go therefore and make disciples of all nations not too many Christians would disagree that evangelism is an absolute necessity if the church is to fulfill its mission Paul in Romas 10 says, 13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the…
When Christians think about the Great Commission they think about Matt 28:18-20. But there are actually five other passages where Jesus commissions us. When we examine each of these six passages we come away with a far more detailed and complete idea of our mission in this world. We find six very important ideas: Jesus is The Master Builder, Jesus is The Model, The Magnitude is significant, Jesus gives The Method, Jesus gives The Message, and the Holy Spirit provides The Means.
The title of the sermon is “Called, Convinced, Commissioned,” and the wording there could even be re-arranged if you want. It could be Called, Commissioned, Convinced, or even Convinced, Called, Commissioned. The order is not what is important here. What is important is our living a life in obedience…

We must obey the Word of God! It's time to stop fooling ourselves and admit to disobeying God and Repent. 22 But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. 23 For if anyone only listens to the Word…

Evangelism is a word that scares both Christians and Non-Christians. Yet it is a non-negotiable part of what it means to be the Church. This sermon explores the reasons why we need to share the good news of Jesus Christ with those who are "harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd". It is part 1 of a 6 part series on Natural Evangelism, based on the book of the same name by Canon J. John. It was preached on Sunday 16 September at the English service of the Church of the Good Shepherd
