21 Days of Prayer & Fasting
Topic: #PRAYFIRST | SALVATION
Romans 1-:13 (NLT) - For "Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved."
I believe the number one job of the local church is to preach the gospel that leads to salvation. Too many times the Church has become a organization that serves it's members. I truly believe the local church is one of the only organizations that exists for it's non members. We are here to make a difference in the world we live in. There is truly no greater difference we can make then to share the gift of salvation with those around us.
The Church is not designed to be a cruise ship that takes care of it's guests. No, the Church is designed to be a rescue ship for humanity. This is why we are unashamedly focused on reaching the lost at My City Church. Everything we do is to help those that don't know Jesus to experience Him in a real and personal way.
In 2018 we want to be focused on reaching the lost like never before. From our relationships, to Crews and our weekend services we want to create a culture that welcomes the broken home. A heart for the lost is developed first and foremost in prayer. When we are close to Jesus we catch His heart for humanity.
Luke 19:10 tells us, "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost." This is the heart of Jesus and should be the heart of His Church.
Who in your world needs to encounter Jesus and His saving grace? These are the people that we should be praying for and reaching out to. In 2018 let's make every effort to take responsibility for the people around us. We can not save anyone, but we can be the message and the invitation. We are always going to be a church that is laser focused on reaching the lost.
Since we have launched we have seen over 400 people give their lives to Christ. Our work is not done yet! Let's keep reaching out and praying for our city and those that still need to experience the life-changing power of Jesus Christ.
