Our Father's Business: In The World

Acts 1:8

By Pastor Chad A. Miller, January 24, 2021


SUMMARY: To be a witness for Christ to our neighbors and the nations is to bring a message that is a marvel of simplicity: Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh; he died to pay for our sins; he was resurrected; now he is exalted in Heaven; he calls us to believe in him and so receive forgiveness of sins. This is good news. The strategy and tools can vary...but our motivation is Christ Himself!


The Bible shows us… 1. God Desires TO KNOW HIM!

Psalm 22:27; Isaiah 61:11; Romans 8:20-21

The Bible shows us… 2. God Desires for TO BE APART FROM HIM!

Psalm 51:57; 1 Timothy 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9

The Bible shows us… 3. Jesus Christ is the HOPE FOR MANKIND!

John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Colossians 1:15-20

The Bible shows us… 4. God Commands/Equips His people TO THE GOSPEL!

Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47; John 20:21; Isaiah 43:10

The Strategy: Acts 1:8


  • The Holy Spirit is ESSENTIAL
  • We are to BE WITNESSES
  • The church grows MISSIONALLY **


“Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man." -Piper

“The light that shines the farthest will shine the brightest at home.” -Dr. Oswald Smith

There can be no burden for distant unreached peoples without a burden for unreached neighbors. Christ demands a world heart!
