Here at CBC we are deeply intrigued by the concept of “sentness.” God, in an act of love, mercy and sacrifice, sent Jesus Christ to earth that we might be rescued, redeemed and restored. And for that we are eternally grateful! But, just before the post-resurrection Jesus departed the earth to return to heaven, he gave two mandates to His followers:
· Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV): And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
· Acts 1:7 (ESV): But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Just as God sent Jesus, Jesus sends us! We are to follow in the footsteps of Jesus and take the His message of light and life to a dark and dying world. Below are some of the ways that CDA Bible seeks to take Christ’s living Gospel message to those nearby, as well as those who live in places far away.
