We are to Live SENT with a purpose.
For many people in the church, it’s time to start giving back to those areas that have been giving to you. People in this church have been a blessing to you; now be one to them.
My dental hygentist was telling me the other day that God had convicted her of serving in her church. Her pastor had been pleading and she was relunctant to commit because she didn’t feel qualified. God would not leave her alone. Beloved, God will quaiify those who commit.
Don’t miss that opportunity!
Live SENT in your generosity.
I know that many people get squeamish when the topic of money comes up. Let me be clear: God certainly doesn’t need your money. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Bottom line He owns you whether you acknowledge it or not.
You don’t have to give…you have the privilege of giving. You get to be a financial participant in what God is up to in changing lives around the world.
But what does it say about your commitment to his mission if you don’t think it’s worth any financial investment at all? God hasn’t given us money so that we could live extravagantly and give sufficiently. We need to flip our priorities, living sufficiently so that we can give extravagantly.
Live Sent in your living.
What do you enjoy doing? I mean you really enjoy doing it! Think about it for a minute. What is it?
- When you see where God has placed you as your mission field it opens up opportunities for you and for God to impact and transform lives with the gospel.
- The guys you hunt and fish with, the motorcycle club you are a member of and even the parents you associate with because your child plays baseball or softball (other sports).
- There are those you associate and work with because of your career and vocation.
Beloved we are to live sent with a PURPOSE!
