LiFEst Review (5 November, 2017)

This week, Ps Stephen kick started November’s theme of “When Heaven Parties!” by speaking on the well-known passage of the Great Commission, taken from Matthew 28:18-20. He shared about 7 reasons why we should “go”:

  1. Because Jesus commanded us to (Mark 16:15)
    • The Great Commission is not a suggestion; it is a command by Jesus that requires our obedience.
  2. Because people need to hear (Romans 10:13-15a)
    • Many people have not heard about the gospel of Christ, and it is our responsibility to share.
  3. Because of the value of the soul (Mark 8:36)
    • The salvation of a person’s soul is worth more than anything this world can offer.
  4. Apart from Christ, there is no salvation (Acts 4:12)
    • No matter how sincere a person is in worshipping, they cannot receive salvation if they do not give their lives to Christ.
  5. Because there is a hell to avoid
    • Hell is a real place that we do not want to see our loved ones go to!
  6. Because there is a heaven to gain
    • There is no better place to be than in the presence of God.
  7. Because time is short (Jeremiah 8:20)
    • Evangelism can only be done on earth; it is something that ceases to exist once we leave this side of heaven.
