kellNow I'm returning to you. I'm saying these things in the world's hearing So my people can experience My joy completed in them.I gave them your word; The godless world hated them because of it, Because they didn't join the world's ways, Just as I didn't join the world's ways. I'm not asking that you take them out of the world But that you guard them from the Evil One.They are no more defined by the world Than I am defined by the world.Make them holy - consecrated - with the truth; Your word is consecrating truth.In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world. I'm consecrating myself for their sakes So they'll be truth-consecrated in their mission. John 17

 

We are smothering under our small ambitions. Our hearts and minds were made for nobler things. God does not bless Christians merely to fulfill their individual needs, but sends them out on mission to display Jesus and to meet the needs of others.

Additional scriptural references made in this sermon are: John 4:13-14; Isaiah 6; Genesis 12.
