1st Area of Need - Your Heart
Missions is the Heart of God
Clearly the need is very great all over the world. Other countries and even our inner-city is plagued with poverty and hopelessness. Jesus is the answer to all life's struggles. Jesus moves the heart to compassion. You can not know Jesus and remain the same. Your heart becomes His heart and that will demand a response. Giving financially to missionaries and volunteering your time is the action of compassion. Jesus says in His Word
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"
Each person who calls Rush their home church family will have many opportunities to give and serve in missions projects in our community and all over the world.
Get involved in missions.
2nd Area of Need - Your Hands
Serving is the Expression of Love
You were not saved to sit but to serve. Purpose is found in puting your hands to the Father's Business. There are so many things that God desires for us to do. Church is not a place to come to, but church is believers loving those around us all day long.
Love drives us to action.
"By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
The world is really our judge.
If those around us do not recognize us by our love for each other, we are not God's disciples. Period.
We can't just talk it but we must show it.
Put your hands forward.
