Mission of God, part 1
This week we begin a six-week study of the Mission of God as we read through various parts of 2 Corinthians in the weeks to come. We start by recognizing “the Truth of God’s Mission” that this Treasure of God’s grace to us in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the forgiveness of sins, has been poured into our hearts. We don’t preach ourselves, how we have it “all together!” But instead we preach Jesus! We are not the source of God’s grace and love, but it has been put into us by His grace and mercy through Baptism. This Truth is the Treasure of God’s Mission – that we who are broken vessels have been chosen by God to shine forth His light and grace in our lives today. As you live out your vocation, may God shine through you this week to point people to Jesus!
