2 2 The Purpose Driven Journey For the Global Glory of God Every journey follows a path. Some journeys wander, some take the quickest route between two points. This journey, the Purpose Driven Journey, follows a path set throughout scripture; it is a strategic response to Jesus' call to his followers, passed along to us, to "make disciples of all nations." This journey is a call to each and every Christian, especially those in leadership, to be effective in taking on our Master's work. This journey starts with an understanding of what God is doing, in history, now and into the future. It is a journey that is about the Gospel of the Kingdom.

3 3 The Lord’s Prayer Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one, for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13

4 4 We are about God’s glory, his kingdom, and his power forever. Why? Our Father is a king. As our Father and King he leads us, he guides us, he watches out over us and he takes care of our needs each and every day. When my Father asks me to do something, I must willingly obey as a faithful son. But, when the King speaks, as happy subjects of his kingdom; we have only one real obligation, and that is to say “yes” to the King. The Purpose Driven Journey Begins and Ends with the Glory of God

5 The Scripture Reveals God’s Will and God’s Plan – It is Our Foundation 5 History is moving towards a climax, a conclusion. As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God.’ So, then, each of us will give an account of himself to God. Romans 14:11-12 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 13:41-42

6 6 The Scripture Reveals God’s Will and God’s Plan – It is Our Foundation God is love and he wants all of us with him in eternity. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

7 7 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; he old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:17–20 The Scripture Reveals God’s Will and God’s Plan – It is Our Foundation So what does God expect from us? He has given us a message of reconciliation to be declared to all of the nations of the world:

8 8 The Scripture Reveals God’s Will and God’s Plan – It is Our Foundation He’s given us a task to do. …All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20 God’s plan is his church. I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. Matthew 16:18

9 9 “… go and make disciples of all nations.” 1.What is a disciple? 2.How do we make them? 3.How do we go to all nations?

10 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind...Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. Matthew 22:37-40 NCV Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20 NIV Great Commandment Great Commission

11 11 Worship Love the Lord with all your heart Ministry Love your neighbor as yourself Evangelism Go and make disciples Fellowship Baptizing them Discipleship Teaching them to obey Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind...Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. Matthew 22:37-40 NCV Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20 NIV

14 Christ-Like Disciples from Healthy Churches Will Reach the World for Christ Balanced believers, living life on purpose, will do what Jesus did. The gigantic problems of lost people, corrupt leaders, sickness, poverty, and ignorance must be addressed by God’s people. 14 A Purpose Driven Life Brings Glory to God Obedience is better than sacrifice. God is glorified when I live my life according to His purposes. When I understand and adopt God’s purposes for my life, it gives me a reason to live, people to partner with, a meaningful job to do, and vision for the future. At my life’s end, because of obedience I have lived my life on purpose.

15 15 Is Your Heart Broken by the Things that Break the Heart of God? Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.“ Matthew 9:35-38

16 16 If you don’t have a plan… What will you do? Mandate Plan Goal

19 19 1.The ____________________ is the largest number of people that I can serve. This is the target audience of my church. In Matthew 9 Jesus says, “Every city needs shepherds.” Together, here in our church, we can come together and we can reach our community for Christ. 2.The key is to get people to come to our church, sit down, and listen to the gospel message. When someone, anyone, comes to the church to experience one of our services, they have joined the ____________________. 3.Once a person comes to church and experiences worship and hears the Word of God we want to encourage them to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and join the church.

I will commit myself to studying the word of God. I will become like Jesus. By making that commitment they join the circle of the ____________________. 5.When I want to become like Jesus and study the Word, I begin to realize that Jesus came to serve, not to be served. I want to be like him so I want to serve the church by taking part in a ministry of my own. These people are the _______________________. 6.Next, we join the circle of the _______________________ and tell others about Jesus. Jesus says, “Go out into the world around you.” I will go.
