Living Invitations Part 13 Ministry Chat

July 20, 2017

Our Online Ministry Training ministry chat continues with the thirteenth installment in our Living Invitations Series. This week we will focus deeper on our mission. We will be using 2 Corinthians 5:11-21 as the foundation for this discussion. As we talk about being ambassadors, we want to look at the message we are to deliver. We are the bearers of the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul shares the gospel with us in 1 Corinthians 5:1-6:

1 Corinthians 15:1-6 (NIV)
1 Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.

As a follower of Christ, this is the message of reconciliation that we are to offer to the world. It is the message we are looking to share by being living invitations. Christ died for our sins, He was buried, and He rose on the third day. He also appeared to hundreds of people who were living witnesses that the resurrection took place. This is the message by which people are saved!
