Good afternoon all,
There’s something about a great rescue story that really strikes a chord with us. Think of the Thai cave rescue a couple of years ago. The plight of those boys underground had many people waiting on the news of the rescue mission to see if they could be saved. Jesus came to earth to fulfil the plans and purposes of God’s rescue story of a lost and broken humanity as well. A rescue of eternal proportions.
Luke 4:43 (ESV) — 43 but he said to them, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.”
This was Jesus’s purpose and mission to preach the good news of the kingdom and ultimately die on a cross for our sins. Jesus now calls us into that same rescue mission as His ambassadors.
This week at Exchange Church:
- EC Youth tonight, Friday, 7:00pm at the church.
- EC Sunday gathering 10:00am
- OnBoard Gospel Partnership Sunday after the service.
This week we wrap up the gospel ecosystem. We finish in Luke 24:44-49 with “mobilised for mission”.
Please read through all of Luke 24 to help us think in the right direction.
On mission together,
