A. As a church family, we must keep our eyes on who God is and what He is doing, not the earthly powers that be. Col. 3:1-4
B. Our mission is to be witnesses while we are here. vs. 8, I John 1:1-4
II. Our witness should be always expanding. vs. 8
A. The body of Christ should not be viewed as an exclusive club...
B. ...but as the only place where the power of truth and life is preserved. I Cor. 6:7-11
III. This is a short-term, urgent mission. Rev. 22:7, 12, 20
A. We need to be bold in the message of love and truth.
B. Witness while we can!
Do I have an urgency within me to be a witness? If not, what it holding me back?
Do I see the need for growing our church family?
Am I living to see Godís eternal plan unfolding or am I striving to build my own earthly kingdom?
