Let’s spend some time this week praying about the mission Jesus gave us: To go and make disciples. We’ll devote time to our local mission and to the missionaries we support elsewhere, who share the Gospel on our behalf.
It’s easy to lose sight of the mission. Even if a church starts out wanting to reach its community for Christ, it can get distracted over the years by a hundred useful and almost-useful activities that reach very few people.
Let’s begin the week by asking God to give MHCC a laser-focus on the mission. Ask him to weed out distractions, even ones that come in the form of good programs and once-useful activities.
Jesus commands us: 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” - Matthew 28:19-20
