This past Sunday, Prince Mngomezulu lead us in Missions Awareness. Listen to what he had to say as he focused on our beloved country, South Africa. https://www.crystalparkbaptistchurch.co.za/2020/12/22/missions-awareness-south-africa/Posted by Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni on Monday, December 21, 2020
14 For the love of Christ compels us, since we have reached this conclusion, that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the one who died for them and was raised. 16 From now on, then, we do not know anyone from a worldly perspective. Even if we have known Christ from a worldly perspective, yet now we no longer know him in this way. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come!
18 Everything is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 19 That is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and he has committed the message of reconciliation to us.
20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God.” 21 He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:14-21)
Our mission as the church is to proclaim Christ as the only Savior from sin and the only way to eternal life. Who are we sent to tell? Jesus told Christians to reach out to “all nations” (Matthew 28:19). Jesus sends us to every tribe, tongue and nation.
