In one way or another we have all likely experienced being a stranger or foreigner or that no one wants us around, the sense of not belonging, of missing out, of being on the outside looking in. Unfortunately, this even happens to people in the church. In this sermon series we are going to look at the lives of three outcast women, strangers, foreigners and in those passages we can hear Jesus telling them: You Belong.
Jesus is our one need: our one love, our one story, our one way, our one truth, our one life. Try and commit this verse, the focus text of this sermon series, to memory: "(John 14:6) Jesus answered, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." In this statement he clearly and unequivocally lets us know that his is our one need!
The purpose of this sermon series, REACH, is to heighten our awareness and sensitivity to those who are outside of a relationship with Jesus and to encourage us to proclaim Him with power, with courage, with obedience, and with sensitivity. We want to help people find their way back to God.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7.
