Embracing Our #1 Call: Carriers of the Great News

Philemon - Love changes everything

A call to give what has been given to us

Tyler’s words resounded with a deep sense of purpose a grand call. As we gathered, he reminded us of a truth fundamental to our faith journey—a truth that resonates through the corridors of time and echoes in the depths of our souls. It’s the truth that we, as believers, are called not just to believe but to actively participate in carrying out God’s kingdom here on earth.

With fervor in his voice, Tyler spoke of the myriad of ways we can fulfill this calling. From embarking on mission trips to extending our hands to serve the community, each action becomes a tangible expression of God’s love and grace. But amidst these tangible acts of service, there lies another profound way in which we welcome and usher in God’s kingdom—the act of communion.

In the simplicity of sharing bread and wine, we symbolically acknowledge our role as bearers of the great news of Jesus Christ. It’s a sacred moment where we gather in the name of Jesus, inviting His presence to permeate every corner of creation. Through communion, we are reminded of the profound commission we have received—a commission birthed from the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. This is the central message believers are called to share.

Tyler’s words paint a vivid picture of this reality—that in partaking of communion, we not only remember but actively engage in the transformative power of the gospel. Through faith in Christ, we are no longer mere spectators but active participants in God’s redemptive plan. We carry His banner, representing His love, mercy, and grace to a world in need of hope and salvation.

At the heart of communion lies a profound truth—that our trust in God extends beyond our past into our future. It’s a trust that propels us forward, empowering us to embrace our divine calling with unwavering faith and conviction. As Tyler eloquently put it, “Trusting in God is not just for my past but for my future.”

As we leave the sanctuary, Tyler’s words linger in our hearts, igniting a renewed sense of purpose and passion. We are reminded that we are more than just individuals—we are carriers of the great news of Jesus Christ. And as we go forth, may we embody His love, proclaim His truth, and faithfully fulfill the commission entrusted to us.

Scripture: “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, 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 (NIV)
