why serve?

 

 
 
 

why serve?

 
Church, have we missed the heart of Christ???  Have we been so focused on personal comforts and so fearful
of the potential cost that we virtually forget the purpose of God among the peoples of God?
 
We are not intended to be on the sidelines in the kingdom of God.  God created us each in His image, each with our
own giftings.  We are "shaped" to do His work - to be His hands and feet.
 
Our challenge to each of us...
 
          *take a risk
      
               *change our lifestyle in  order to seriously engage the unreached world
 
                    *make our life count where we are
 
                        *take the gospel, declaring God's glory to the ends of the earth
 
                              *make disciples, who make disciples, who make disciples...
