Ambassadors

June 2 2013 – Ambassadors – Message

We work in order to live.

Jesus lived to do the work of the Father

Matthew 9:35-38 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

The passage starts off with Jesus went.

What does the Bible tell us some of the places that Jesus went to?

  • Synagogues and temple
  • Weddings
  • Fishing
  • Into people’s houses
  • Into people’s villages

JESUS PURPOSELY WENT INTO PEOPLE’S LIVES

Everywhere Jesus went he:

  • Taught (Small Groups)
  • Preached (Large Groups)
  • Healed (Any and all)

Jesus went, but he also saw

                        35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds,

What did Jesus see?

  • Hurting individuals
  • Harassed and helpless people
  • Sheep without a shepherd

Jesus saw people.

  • He saw their hurts
  • He saw them as important
  • He saw them as equals

Jesus went, Jesus saw, Jesus had.

What did Jesus have? Compassion

I THINK JESUS WANTS US TO BE COMPASSIONATE CHRISTIANS

The Greek word used here for compassion means to suffer within

Jesus went, Jesus saw, Jesus had, and then Jesus said

                        37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

 WHEREVER YOU GO YOU BRING CHRIST WITH YOU.

2 Corinthians 5:20 “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.”

Jesus lives within us through the Holy Spirit.

  • We bring God’s presence everywhere we go
  • We bring God’s power everywhere we go
  • We bring the peace of God everywhere we go.
