SAVED FOR A MISSION
By Gilbert Hughes, written on Friday the 06th of February 2009

saved for a mission 2 Tim 1:7-9

By Gilbert Hughes, MINISTER of the word

 

 

            Gilbert Hughes, a teacher of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,

Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

 

 

            Introductions

 Every person who has received Christ and who has been born again by the Spirit of God is called upon by the Lord Jesus to be a witness for Him!

 

Let open our bible, “the mind of God” in the book of 2 Tim 1:7-8

7       For God has not given us a spirit of FEAR, but of power and love and SOUND MIND (discipline.)

8       Therefore do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or of me His prisoner; but join with {me} in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God,

(NAS)

 

2 Tim 1:8 If you will stir up this inner power, you will never be afraid to tell others about our Lord (TLB)

 

*    The world is full of selfish people, who basically think only of themselves, care only for themselves, and live only for themselves 

*    God did not create you just to eat; drink; make money and take up space; or seat around

God designed you to make a difference with your life

Eph 2:10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.(NIV)

 

you are saved for a mission

Turn your bible to 2 Tim 1:9   It is he who saved us and chose us for his holy work not because we deserved it but because that was his plan long before the world began-- to show his love and kindness to us through Christ. (TLB)

1.    It cost Jesus his own life for us to get that mission

1 Cor 6:20   For God has bought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God because he owns it. (TLB)

 

2.    Jesus choose you for that mission

*    the Ministers did not choose you, man did not choose you but God

John 15:16   You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit-- fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. (NIV)

 

 

3.    It’s a holy work

It’s a holy work, a very good thing to do, the right thing to do,

Eph 2:10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.(NIV)

 

4.    What is that mission?

A.   Your mission is to reconcile man to God

(2 Cor 5:18-20), Verse 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:

*    You  have the ministry of reconciliation

*    That  mission is to reconcile man to God

*    His to introducing others to Jesus Christ

*    In other word is to witnessing , soul winning

WITNESS means : One who has seen , heard of something; or experienced something, one that gives evidence; to be present or have personal acknowledges of; who is called on to testify of, or have evidence that gives grounds for believing in the existence of something

 

Rev 12:10

The devil is the accuser of our brethren, liar; telling people God do not exit; you will make it without God  

 

But as a witness you come to testify that the Lord is good, and so love us that He died for my and also your sins and rose again to set you and me free

 

Verse 20        We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. (NIV)

*    Being sent into the world as a representative of Jesus.

*    you have been sent to speak for Him

To speak for Him, what?

 

Let’s see, the statement was found in the book of Mark 16:15 And Jesus said to them,

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

 

*    to preach to them the Good News “gospel” about Salvation in Christ

 

 

What is the Good News?

*    the Good News is the kingdom of God

Luke 4:43   But He said to them, "I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose."(NAS)

The apostolic youth ministry preach the Gospel of the grace of God (Acts 20:24). Our message is, “Christ died for our sins,” and not, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” The King has come; He has already suffered, died, and risen from the dead. Now He offers His salvation to all who will believe.

 

B.   your mission is to GO and make disciples

*    according to Luke 14:23 the Lord said, GO out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. 

*    Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

*    Matthew 28:19-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

     God will provide

 

 

C.   your mission is a honor, a privilege to be use by God

John 20:21   So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." (NKJ)

*    working with God and representing God on earth

 

5.            we have great responsibility

A. Witnessing for Christ is the responsibility of every believer. Acts 1:8;                  1 Pet. 3:15; Mk. 5:18,19

Every Christian is called by the LORD to be a witness

 

 

B.   Witnessing for Christ is the command of the Lord Jesus to every believer.

John 9:4   "I  must work the works of Him who sent Me, as long as it is day; night is coming, when no man can work. (NAS)

 

C.   Witnessing for the LORD Jesus is a wise thing to do!

The Bible says in Proverbs 11:30 ''....he that winneth souls is wise

There is a great joy and satisfaction which a Christian will gain when they successfully lead another person to Christ

 

D.   God hold you responsible for the unbelievers

Ezek 3:18  When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood.(NIV)

Also the book of Ezek 3:19 said, But if you warn them, and they keep on sinning and refuse to repent, they will die in their sins, but you are blameless-- you have done all you could. (TLB)

 

6.            The Motive for the Mission

In (v. 36). ‘When he [Jesus] saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.’

A.  He was moved with compassion (concern, humanity)

B. he has a burden for those that are lost

because they were ‘harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

§        The people of God must have a burden for those that are lost.

§        You must have a heart of compassion (Romans 9:2; I Corinthians 5:14).

Again a tell you, God hold us responsible for the unbelievers, “sinners”

Ezek 3:18  When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood.(NIV)

We are to be ready at any time to minister the gospel

Eph 6:15 Wear shoes that are able to speed you on as you preach the Good News of peace with God. (TLB)

 

7.            Do not be distracted in your mission

KEEP focus; they need help, suffering, hurt, hopeless

Luke 9:62  But Jesus told him, "Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God.(TLB)

*    The clock is ticking down on you, get started reach out to other now

 It is very important that every Christian understands, God has COMMANDED us to win the lost.

 

Conclusion

Who will stand for the lord and say lord I accept that mission

Isa 6:8 Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?  Here am I; lord sends me

GOD the father looking for somebody, anyone who will not be ashamed to testify about our lord, A man with a mission

The clock is ticking down on you, get started reach out to other now

 

Many believers do not know that witnessing and soul winning brings with it such special rewards, 1 Thess 2:19-20

 There is a ''Crown of Rejoicing''  for soul winners

Listen to what Jesus says:

''Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also   before My Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven.'' --Matt 10:32-33

 

You Can Receive Christ Right Now by Faith through Prayer
(Prayer is talking to God)

Invite Jesus into your life.
Rom 10:9-10
    9    that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10    For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rev 3:20    "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

Acknowledge your sins to God. Acknowledge that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. Ask for forgiveness, repent. Thank Him for your salvation. Tell Him of your desire to live for Him. Ask Him to direct your life

"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be."

 

If you have given your life to Christ, He wants you to grow in that relationship click on ministergilberthughes@apostolicyouthministry.org

 

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
