THE MESSAGE

THE COMMISSION OF CHRISTMAS: AS MY FATHER HAS SENT ME SO SEND I YOU

****************************************************************************

1.SAVE

Jesus came to this world to save people not to destroy them. He came to give His life as a ransom for many. He came to shed His blood for the forgiveness of sin for mankind.He came to give eternal life and abundant life. He sends us forth with the same mission to save others. We are not sent to destroy and hurt people but to bring hope and salvation and abundant life to suffering mankind.

Luke 19:10

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

2.SERVE

Jesus came to this world to serve and to sacrifice. He did not come to be ministered unto but to minister. He did not come looking for personal benefit and profit.He came in order to bless others and meet their needs. He came with the heart of a servant. He sends us forth with the same purpose to serve the people and be a blessing to others. We are not sent with a selfish purpose to see what we can gain for ourselves and how we can make people serve us and our interests. We are sent with a noble and self sacrificing purpose to serve others.

*****************************

Matthew 20:25-28

Jesus called them together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.

Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,

and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—

just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

Luke 14:12-14

Then Jesus said to his host, "When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid.

But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,

and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

3.SHINE

Jesus came to this world to shine as the Light of the world. He came to dispel the darkness of sin and ignorance and to help people find the way of salvation and eternal life. He sends us forth with the same purpose to shine as the light of the world to help people find the way to God . He wants our light to shine before the world that they may see our good works and glorify the Father in heaven. He wants us to blameless and without rebuke in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation holding forth the word of Life and shining as lights . Light is needed where there is darkness and so our witness is needed especially in places filled with ungodliness such as our workplace and neighbourhood where we can be an example for others to follow.Let us shine brightly for Christ in this dark world and lead many to the light of the gospel.
