Heaven and hell are realities, and people are going there every day. Who goes where is largely dependent on how the church does proclaiming Jesus’ message of transformation and carrying on Jesus’ mission of transforming the world.
The Gospel, or “Good News” of Jesus, the message of transformation is this:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17)
Jesus came on a mission to transform the world by seeking and saving the lost. If you are a follower of Christ, you are called by God to be a difference maker…you are called to carry on Jesus’ mission of transforming the world. BUT you can’t and won’t be a difference maker all by yourself. God has always been about a PEOPLE, not a person. You see, at the moment that someone puts their faith in Jesus, God makes them part of His PEOPLE…the CHURCH.
Jesus has called His church to carry on His mission of transforming the world. This mission seems impossible – BUT God promises us He can and will accomplish the impossible through us. HOWEVER, I can’t accomplish this mission alone. You can’t accomplish it alone, either. It’s a calling for ALL of us.
God has destined us as Relevant Community Church to be difference makers at this point in history, in our community, TOGETHER. But will we be? It all depends if we are ready and committed to be difference makers.
To be a difference-making church, we must go from some-in to ALL-IN.
We must engage wholeheartedly…working with all of our hearts. We must be fully ENGAGED and COMMITTED to the mission at all costs.
Do you want to be a difference maker?
I hope so, because there is NO greater calling, purpose, or fulfillment than carrying on Jesus’ mission of transformation. This is the only thing worth living for, this is the only way we live lives worth living.
Do you want Relevant to be a difference-making church?
I hope you want nothing more than to see God accomplish a God-sized, world-transforming mission through us.
Being a difference maker and being a difference-making church will not happen by accident. A difference-making church, who accomplishes a God-sized mission, is a church in which…
ALL are ENGAGED in serving on a team.
What if we became a church who is 100% engaged in serving? Can you imagine the impact 100% of us serving together…how it would transform our church and transform the world?
My challenge to you is this:
- Get engaged in serving on a team. Joining a Sunday morning team is an easy first step. For more on ways to get involved, check out serving opportunities here.
- If you want to know your role more fully, go through Staff Orientation. Find out more information about Relevant’s Volunteer Staff and how to get signed up for Volunteer Staff Orientation here.
Are you engaged and committed to serving on a team?
If no, will you say yes? Will you take the step to engage?
Let’s not fail! Let’s not be average! Let’s accomplish 100% of what God wants to in and through us, which is only possible through 100% of us being engaged in serving!
