Watch the video above for the full-length sermon (coming soon).

Followers of Jesus 2000 years ago took their global mission seriously. Modern-day Christians should do the same.

Key Points:

  1. God’s people are called to pray for his workers around the world. Colossians 4:3-4
  2. God’s people are called to make Jesus attractive outside the church. Colossians 4:5-6
  3. God’s people are called to make disciples, whoever you are. Colossians 4:17

Featured Text:

Colossians 3:5-6 Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.
