Sermon Description

As we’ve seen in Exodus, the LORD’s expressed purpose in saving his people from bondage was to make known his Name (6:7; 7:5; 8:22; 14:4). He wanted to proclaim the knowledge of himself among the nations, and in this chapter, we see that very purpose advancing.

The Book of Jonah: Preaching to the Nations – The Humbling of a Self-Righteous Missionary

Bible VersesJonah 4

Preacher

Preached on

December 16, 2018

Sermon Description

Self-righteousness is toxic for missions. A sense of moral superiority towards certain people or a naively optimistic view of humanity in general will lead to the conclusion that some don't deserve salvation or even need it. These self-righteous tendencies must be confronted before we will share in God's great compassion for the lost among the nations.

Bible Verses1 Timothy 2:1-7

Preacher

Preached on

February 11, 2018

Sermon Description

Listening to the prayer life of a church can be very revealing. What we pray about will tell you what kind of God we worship. Do we speak to him like a village deity? Like he's a tribal god? Or do we treat him as a missional God with a heart set on the nations?

Bible VersesDaniel 7:1-14

Preacher

Preached on

February 26, 2017

Sermon Description

The task of global missions has been and will be carried out in the face of terrible, beastly opposition. Like the first readers of Daniel, we need hearts comforted and hands strengthened. That happens when the veil is lifted and we see the forces that frighten us now subjected under the universal dominion of the Son of Man.

Preacher

Preached on

February 19, 2017

Sermon Description

Our missionary labor is Christ-centered when it is modeled after the servant mindset of Christ. When it is about giving and not grasping; self-emptying and not self-exalting. When it is about not trying to make a name for yourself on earth because you trust God to give you a better one in glory.
