God Has Called Us To Be The Church Outside Of Church
"God Has Called Us To Be The Church Outside Of Church" By Zach Wood Colossians 4:2-6
Because of the Good News God has given to us, we are told to share that good news with those who are lost. Jesus gives us a mission to fulfill.The Great Commission sends us out to share the good news and teach people about Christ’s Love.
The Apostle Paul talks about how we, as the church, need to live our lives so carefully each day so that others will see the Good News not only through our speech, but also through our actions and the way we live. It's one thing to talk about sharing God's Love. It's another thing to actually do it and get out there to make it real for people.
When we praise God through our tough times, it sends a very positive message to those who need to hear the good news and many become inquisitive. And through those inquisitive times, people are more open to us being able to be the church outside of the church walls. We can minister to people and share God's Love in ways we've never been able to before.
Now, more than ever, people need to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.It’s great to have our fellowship within the walls of our church, but God has called us to do so much more.
