Life On Mission – Part 1
August 11th & 12th, 2018

Luke 15

“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” Acts 20:24

“In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!” Luke 15:7

  • It’s Never About Me; It’s Always About The Lost.
  1. We Search. 

“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.” Luke 19:10

“So my sheep have been scattered without a shepherd, and they are easy prey for any wild animal. They have wandered through all the mountains and all the hills, across the face of the earth, yet no one has gone to search for them.” Ezekiel 34:5-6

  1. We Attract. 

“Then they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive in every way.” Titus 2:10b

“…I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some.” 1 Corinthians 9:22b

“His father said to him, ‘Look, dear son, you have always stayed by me, and everything I have is yours. We had to celebrate this happy day. For your brother was dead and has come back to life! He was lost, but now he is found!’” Luke 15:31-32
