Using our Gifts to Influence our World

The Christian’s greatest duty is to worship God
Every right choice in life is worship
(see Romans 12:1-2)

The 2nd greatest duty is to influence our world for Jesus
Evangelism & Discipleship

The un-churched--to help them know Jesus (evangelism)
Other Christians--to help other Christians Grow (discipleship)

Living life w/ this in mind helps us to live with purpose
You benefit from purpose

Purpose leads to meaning—Meaning leads to hope
Hope leads to change—Change leads to growth
(see 2 Peter 3:18)
