You Are Called To Be Sent
John 20:21 (NIV)

Before Jesus ascended to the Father, He called His followers to action. “Jesus said… ‘As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.’”

Through His life, ministry, death and resurrection He called all who would hear to accept God’s love, belong to God’s family, be transformed by God’s Spirit, and serve with God’s heart. Those who believed and followed Jesus were now charged with going out to do the same work for the world that Jesus had done for them.

This Sabbath we consider the fifth part of God’s call – the call to be sent in the name and spirit of Christ to share the Good News of Christ. We will look at four things you can do answer this call, no matter your
age, circumstances, or abilities.

I invite you to share this time with us, and hear the call of God on your life.

God bless you,

Pastor Terry Benson
