Transfer | Session 3 | Summary

May 26, 2013

Last night at Transfer, Jeff Purswell spoke on God’s Word. Jared Mellinger addressed us this morning on God’s People. And Ian McConnell shared our third session on God’s Mission.

He spoke from Romans 11:36: “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.”

Ian shared that our mission as God’s people is to make much of God: “We are here to do all to the glory of God. We exist to make much of God. It’s not about us. It’s all about him.”

Below are notes from the session; audio will be posted shortly.

  1. We were made for this mission. “What gives meaning to every day of your life is that you have been created in a particular way to add to a world of image-bearers.”
  2. We were saved for this mission. “You have been saved to make much of the one who saved you. You have been forgiven to make much of the one who has forgiven you. You have been redeemed to make much of the one who has redeemed you. You have been justified to make much of the one who has justified you. You have been reconciled to make much of the one who has reconciled you. You have been sealed by the Spirit to make much of the one who has sealed you by the Spirit.”

How do we live our lives to make much of Jesus?

  1. We get to know Jesus.
  2. We celebrate Jesus.
  3. We become more like Jesus.
  4. We share Jesus.

We will continue posting updates from Transfer on the blog, along with the audio messages. Stay tuned!
