LTD Podcast E43: Living Sent
Years ago, I had the privilege of worshiping in a church that had a sign that said, “You are now entering the mission field” at the exit of their parking lot. I’m not sure if that is the most accurate statement because the church can be a mission field as well. But the point was you are now going out into the world to be the ambassadors and witnesses for Christ. I have had the privilege of being under Pastor JD Greear’s ministry at the Summit Church where they end their weekend services with the proclamation, “you are sent” and that’s the ending of their worship experience.
I really wish more churches would in some way, shape, or another, make that proclamation over the believers of Christ. In this episode, we will be talking about Living Sent and really dive into this word “sent”. We serve a sending God. Long before Covid-19, sending was already happening because in John 3:16 it says, “for God so loved the world that He sent His one and only son, gave His one and only son Jesus to the world that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life”. We serve a God who sent His son.
Salvation comes by believing that the Father has sent His son for the forgiveness of our sins. Jesus understood that His purpose was to go and share the good news of the kingdom of God to the cities other than his birthplace, Bethlehem. Being a Christian is more than a label. It is being a Christ follower. We are actually following someone that Almighty God has sent into the whole world.
In several of our past episodes, I had the chance to talk to my friends Ayo and Pastor David. In their stories, you get to really see this passion of God to go and reach by orchestrating very sovereign plans to fulfill the great commission. We serve a sending God and you can see that in the lives of Ayo and Pastor David. They serve as evidence that God is working to send foreign born internationals to the USA to strengthen the church. He does this by reaching foreign born internationals so that the church can partner with them in fulfilling the great commission. God is a sending God. He has sent His son, He is sending you. He is also sending foreign born internationals for the purpose of the gospel.
