    We are not here just to go to church and enjoy each other… Jesus said…
    Matthew 5:16 NLT
    16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
    Just before this verse, he said that Christians were Salt of the Earth. Salt makes everything but blood pressure better. We are supposed to go and make it better.
    Not only are we supposed to be salt, but Jesus told us that we are to be light. Not only are we supposed to make things taste better, but we are to make everything look better… brighter.
    We are not supposed to let our light shine just to let it shine. We are not to feed people just to feed them. We are not to educate people just to educate them.
    Jesus puts a “so that” in this sentence. We are to do good deeds so that they will see our good deeds and become interested in our God. We don’t need to be random. We need to be intentional.
    Look at Jesus last words on earth.
    Tell about Jesus life birth - to death and resurrection to asenscion.
    Acts 1:8 NLT
    8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
    Go be witnesses were the last words out of Jesus mouth. A witness simply tells people what they experienced. You don’t have to preach, you are just a witness to what Jesus has done in your life.
    He said tell people in Jerusalem (Westbank) Judea (America) Samaria (people who are different than us) ends of the earth (rest of the world.

    Local Missions
    1 Corinthians 9:22 NLT
    22 When I am with those who are weak, I share their weakness, for I want to bring the weak to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some.
    Listen to me. There is a distinction Paul is giving us that is different from what many people to do today. If you are not careful, when you are with the weak, you will give them som money or even food. But that’s not OUR assignment.
    Not all compassion and charity is the same. If all we so is supply someone’s needs in that moment, you did not do what your assignment from God is. You did a good deed according to the world, but you did not complete your assignment from God.
    Paul said he shared in their weakness so that he can bring the weak to Christ. He goes on to say that he tried to find common ground with people so that he can lead them to faith in Jesus Christ.
    We need to make sure our acts of kindness are connected to the love of God. Don’t just give someone some money, give it in Jesus name. don’t just leave a big tip in a restaurant, ask them if you can pray for them. Give a Little Red Bible with your tip. Act of Kindness Card.

    Matthew 16:18 NLT
    18 Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.
    Church was personal to Jesus. I like all churches, but I love my church. Listen to me, the gates of hell will not prevail.

    We are a life-giving church providing an opportunity for people to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference.

    It’s tempting to get into huddle up mode … to find a safe place to hide from all the stuff going on.
    Movie the Impossible - when the waters went down a mother and her son were trying to survive. She had a gash in her leg and they didn’t know if they would make it… didin’t know if the dad or the other brother was alive. Heard a little boy calling for help and there was a tension between the boy and the mom as to what to do. The boy wanted to help… the mom wanted to survive.
    That’s where we have been these last two years… personally and as a church. You see even though we have accomplished great things, as small as we are, I hear a small voice out there calling for help. The voice of someone hurting who needs Jesus.
    If you are a follower of Jesus, here are three principles that I want you to know.

    We are Blessed to be a Blessing

    God blesses us with more than we need so that we can be a blessing to others.

    You are in America…

    1. We have to know what the more is for

    Genesis 12:2 NLT
    2 I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others.
    America has been great because we have blessed other nations. We have built orphanages, schools, colleges and hospitals all over the world. We have sent missionaries out to evangelize the word and feed the world.
    God has given us this church to bless others.

    2. When we bless others, God takes care of our needs.

    Your giving has continued…

    There is almost nothing God won’t do for the person who wants to help other people.

    Luke 18:29–30 GW
    29 Jesus said to them, “I can guarantee this truth: Anyone who gave up his home, wife, brothers, parents, or children because of the kingdom of God 30 will certainly receive many times as much in this life and will receive eternal life in the world to come.”
    This life and the life to come.

    3. The more God blesses us, the more He expects us to bless others.

    Luke 12:48 The Living Bible
    48 “But anyone who is not aware that he is doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, for their responsibility is greater.
    The more God gives us the more he holds us responsible. He gives us more responsibility the more responsible we are.
    OT Jewish tradition.
    Deuteronomy 21:17 NLT
    17 He must recognize the rights of his oldest son, the son of the wife he does not love, by giving him a double portion. He is the first son of his father’s virility, and the rights of the firstborn belong to him.
    The responsibility of the first born is to take his dad’s responsibility on himself in the absence of his dad.
    Hebrews 12:22–23 NLT
    22 No, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless thousands of angels in a joyful gathering. 23 You have come to the assembly of God’s firstborn children, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God himself, who is the judge over all things. You have come to the spirits of the righteous ones in heaven who have now been made perfect.
    We are God’s firstborn. We are a representative of the Father’s strength. We…the church represent the Father.
