"And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel."
(Exodus 19:6 KJV)
Have you read your Bible from cover to cover? If you have, then you know that our God is Awesome and He always has a purpose or mission to accomplish in what and how He does anything. Have you stopped to think about what God's mission was in putting us on a new planet called earth and providing us with all we need to live and multiply? The Bible tells us but we get so interested in all the things God tells us to do, be and say along with all the stories about our forefathers that we don't really comprehend or focus on His mission.
Let's divide God's mission up according to the Holy Bible in which He tells what His Mission is. We can see, at least, three ways it could divided: 1) The mission of God in the Old Testament. It is explained in Exodus 19:6 and Isaiah 52:7-10, where God explains that He intended for Israel to show His salvation to the ends of the earth. 2) The mission of God in the New Testament is explained in Matthew 28:18-20, 1Peter 2:9 and Romans 10:14-15. This is where God is Awesome as He explains that He desires that we reach the world for Christ. 3) The mission of God in the last days is explained in Revelation 5:9 and Revelation14:6. In these Scriptures God tells us His plan is to reach every people group on the face of the earth so that they can choose to make Our Awesome God their God or not.
This is why we see Paul start on missionary journeys to the cities and peoples of his time. The Church at Philippi is only one such example in the Bible, of God reaching out to a group of people not in Israel. (Revelation 1:7) God strengthened Paul for this work and Paul spent his life following Christ's example of telling everyone about God and Jesus Christ. Can we do the one thing Our Awesome God desires: that all should know about His Son, Jesus Christ, and His saving power?
We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday. If you are not yet a Christian, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your Creator and Savior. Join us at Living Word Baptist Church as we pray and worship Him this Sunday. At 9:30 AM, we have small group Bible Studies and at 10:30 AM, we meet in the sanctuary for Worship Service. Sunday evening at 6:00 PM we have Bible Study. On Wednesdays, we meet at 7:00 PM for Prayer Meeting and Bible Study along with a separate Spanish Bible Study. We love visitors!
