Proclaiming God's Excellencies

This morning is Missions Sunday, a Sunday in which we emphasize the mission of the church. The church is comprised of all those saved by the grace of the Lord, called out of darkness and unbelief and brought to faith in Christ. Having received God's mercy, we have been commissioned to take the hope of the gospel to the nations. God chooses to make his offer of mercy and grace through us.

  2. What does it mean to be in darkness? And what does it mean to be in marvelous light?
  3. Why is receiving mercy a distinguishing characteristic of God's people?
  4. God has equipped you and called you to proclaim the good news of the gospel. Are you being faithful to this role and calling? What specific person(s) has God placed on your heart to share the gospel with? Pray together for boldness and opportunity to share with these persons.
  5. How can you participate in and support missions through Journey Church?
