The Mission of the New Community
The New CommunityPastor Jerry Gillis - February 15, 2015
The people of God, Israel, had a clear mission: To declare and witness the glory of God among the nations. The mission that God gave to His original chosen people is the same mission that we have within the New Community.
Community Group Study Notes
- What is the God’s mission? Use Scripture to support your answer. What is our part in joining that mission?
- Talk about how we can offer spiritual sacrifices in the following areas: self; gifts; generosity; praise. Why are each of these necessary to move us forward in God’s mission?
- What would it look like for each of our relationships to have the fingerprints of Jesus on it? What difference might this have for the sake of God’s mission?
You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:5)
