Doing Good

Sunday August 10, 2008                                Acts 9:36-43

Two Heroes

Peter – Preacher, Evangelist, Miracles

Tabitha – Always Doing Good

Both And – Expanding Our Idea of ‘Mission’

Serving And Mission

Either Or

·         Preaching vs Serving

Transition

·         Serving as ‘Hook’ – Friendship / Kindness Evangelism

Question

·         Is Serving / Loving / Social Action, ‘Ministry’ / ‘Mission’?

A Big Idea

·         Ministry / Mission – Joining / Furthering God’s Agenda

·         God’s Dream – God’s Will / Plan / What God Really Wants

è Rethink the Question – What is God’s Agenda?

o   Is God’s Dream Only about Destination?

o   Is it also about the Kind of People & Kind of Life?

o   May Your Kingdom Come ... On Earth ...

·         Doing Good is Part of Our Mission
