Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.

Does God want to give salvation to all men? God is no concerning how many people in the planet but He is so much concerning with sins growing day by day. I am possessed of a hope that is statedfast and sure since Jesus came to my heart. R.H. Mcdaniel
What is Mission? English word Mission comes from the Latin word for sending Being a disciple of Jesus includes being sent in to the world as a representative of Jesus Christ. He said “ As the father has sent me. I am sending you. John 20:21
Why we need Mission? The Mission Jesus had while in the earth is now our mission because we are the body of Christ. It is introducing people to God. God wants to redeem human beings from Satan and reconcile them to himself so we can fulfill the purpose he created us.
To love him To be a part of his family To become like him To Serve him And to tell about him

Great commission is commitment Matthew 28:18-20 Markus 16: Go and Make disciple of all the nations We need to give up in order to grow up Commitment is coming out of comfort zone
What is Evangelism and Evangelist Spreading Gods word to the world is evangelism A Christian who proclaim the good news to those who have not heard about Jesus is an Evangelist Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes. Romans 10:13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (English Standard Version)
How are we to communicate the gospel? Communicate the gospel with Authority Preach the gospel with simplicity Preach with repetition We are to communicate the gospel with holy life We communicate the gospel by our love of our fellowman We can communicate the gospel with social concern
Witnessing We are called to witness to the end of the world. Acts 1:8 Acts 1 Jerusalem Acts 8 Judea Acts 8:4 Samaria Acts 10 Gentile Acts 13 End of the world
Such a time Gospel is being preached.The Holy spirit is moving and Jesus is winning 1900 very little believers in South Korea now 1 out of every 3 Koreans are believers. The end of second world war there were 3 million believers in China today over 150 million
The greatest time of gospel proclamation lies yet before us. But it will require a new measure of commitment and focus a new degree of zeal and passion John Wesley England great revivalists said, “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. Do all the people you can. As long as every you can.” Lets do it!
