The Challenge

“Sending You” 

  1. The idea of  “____________________” is what really set                His life apart. 

See: John 4:34; 5:30; 6:29; 6:38; 7:16; 7:28-29; 8:16; 8:29; 9:4; 12:44-45; 12:49; 13:20; 14:24. 

Luke 15:1, 20,  “Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus…. So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his fathersaw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” 

  1. To Jesus, nothing mattered more than ______________   what was lost. 

See: Luke 5:32; Matthew 18:14; Luke 19:10; 14:23. 

John 20:21, “Again Jesus said, ‘Peace be with you! As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you.’” 

  1. Jesus wasn’t just sent on a _____________________; He came to send us on one, too. 
  2. A spiritual narcissism has invaded our thinking where the individual needs and desires of the believer become the                         __________________________________________.
