First in Mission: The Fellowship of Service

In the conversation for this Sunday, January 31, 2016, Pastors Stuart Nice and Kim Nowlin lead us in a conversation about living according to the mission Jesus gave us, and doing it together.

The passage for this morning's conversation is Luke 10:1-3.

After this, the Lord appointed 70 other disciples to go ahead of him to every city and place that he intended to go. They were to travel in pairs.
He told them, “The harvest is large, but the workers are few. So ask the Lord who gives this harvest to send workers to harvest his crops. Go! I’m sending you out like lambs among wolves.
(Luke 10:1-4, God's Word Translation)

The eleven disciples went to the mountain in Galilee where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they bowed down in worship, though some had doubts.
When Jesus came near, he spoke to them. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations:Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to do everything I have commanded you."
“And remember that I am always with you until the end of time."
(Matthew 28:16-20, God's Word Translation)
