A Month of Love (February 2016), Part One: Go! Preach! (Loving the Lost)

Mark 16:14–18 (NKJV)
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

If You believe…

You will live right
You will see the need for others to be saved
You will tell the story of Christ to any you can

Go!

Action Command
Imperative Command
Demands a Response

All the World

Those like you
Those unlike you
Nice people
Mean people
Pretty people
Ugly people

Preach!

Declare the Gospel, by any means

16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

The Experience of Salvation

What a Joyous Event
Excitement in Heaven
Satisfaction of Saving a Life

The Tragedy of Rejecting Christ

Not everyone will accept
The lost may still be lost
Yet we press on, witnessing, preaching, proclaiming

Signs

Spiritual Authority
Spiritual Gifts
Spiritual Protection
Spiritual Healing

Takeaway Thoughts

It is Essential to Believe
We are commanded to Preach
Love Makes the Mission is Worth the Risk
The Power of God (Signs) will Confirm the Witness
