And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation
Reaching everyone with the gospel is our greatest priority. God describes this as His priority throughout scripture.
Old Testament Promises – __________________
Old Testament Prayers – __________________
Old Testament Commands – give praise to God in all things
New Testament Commission for Christ – to take the gospel all over the world
Paul’s Dedication to this Mission – he wanted to go to places where the Gospel has not yet reached
The Big Picture
At the end of Paul’s life
“the Lord stood with me” – just as He promised, all the way to the end
“…and strengthened me” – the Creator of all the Heavens and Earth gave him strength to get through tough times
This strength was for the proclamation of the Gospel
The Lord stood with me
To give us the strength to tell someone else about the Gospel
It’s time we get the salt out of the shaker, and into our community!
