Video 10: Lesson 9 “Reaching Others on the Journey”

Reaching Others on the Journey: Evangelism and Mission

Turn to page 60 in your study guide.

We’ve looked at many essential topics that relate to our relationship with God and with other believers in the context of the local church. However, our study wouldn’t be complete without giving attention to a critical component of the Christian life: the mandate from our Lord to reach others with the gospel. Our relationship with God was never intended to be merely a private journey concerned only with one’s personal beliefs. On the contrary, those who have been reconciled to God through the work of Christ by definition become “ambassadors for God” in sharing the gospel with others (2 Corinthians 5:18-20).

One of the songs of Revelation proclaims that Christ’s death ransomed people for God “from every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelations 5:9). As we turn our attention to the church’s mission to glorify God through the proclamation of the gospel throughout the earth, we will see that each of us has the great privilege and responsibility of sharing the gospel with others, demonstrating its reality in our lives, and participating in the mission of the local church.

WHAT’S NEXT? Go to page 64 in your study guide and it will give you instructions on how to contact MVC’s office and make an appointment to meet one of our pastors.  The study guide will provide you the necessary forms that you will need to fill out and bring with you. We look forward to meeting you soon!
