We were privileged to have Matthew Ellison from 16:15 with us yesterday. In the morning, he brought a great exposition of Matthew 28:16-20 entitled God’s Triumphant Mission. He encouraged us with the truth that the Great Commission can’t be stopped. Therefore, we should either, 1) join God in history’s greatest moment or 2) miss out. We were encouraged, in light of God’s greatness and glory, to join in the spreading of God’s fame in the world. All Nations Must Hear was his first point. He spoke about the unfinished task and how God might be strategically positioning us as a people to advance the Gospel. This work, is helped along by 2 promises: 1) All Authority Belongs To Christ and 2) ALL-ways Christ is with us. In light of this, we were urged to respond. It was a great morning in the Word.
In the evening, Matthew led our Elders, Missions Committee and other people in a discovery workshop to assess what we currently do as a church and how our current situation propels and ignites a vision for the future. This was a time-consuming night, but very fruitful.
All in all, we enjoyed a great Lord’s day. I hope you did as well.
