What's your favorite thing about Superbowl Sunday? Is it the food? The game? The halftime show? The thing is, football isn't just a game of brute strength: It's a game of strategy and skill. In fact, football is filled with lessons about unity and teamwork. You could even liken the Church to a football team in some ways... Our coach is Jesus, and we follow his playbook called the Bible... and in that playbook, he gave us the final play to run. The play is called The Great Commission, and you'll find it in Matthew 29:19 in the New Testament of the Bible.
In this verse, Jesus' team of disciples huddles up, and Jesus calls them to go and make disciples, or followers of Jesus, from every nation. Today, we do this by serving others and helping them take their next steps in their spiritual journey. People of all different backgrounds come together in the Church to use their gifts, talents and skills to serve others.
See, we want to help people know the love of God and the forgiveness that comes through Jesus - and we know that when you're fully alive in Christ, you're fully alive in the world! That's why here at Liquid, we have a God-given vision to Saturate the State with the Gospel of Jesus Christ! We have a big vision from a big God... and we can't reach this vision alone!
CAN'T DO IT ALONE
Today, I want to invite you to follow Jesus' Great Commission in Matthew 29 to go and make disciples... and you can do it right here at Liquid on what we call Dream Teams. Our Dream Team consists of greeters, Liquid Family mentors, roadies, parking volunteers, and so much more. It's the team of people who help make Sundays happen at Liquid - so we can share the good news of Jesus with everyone who visits us on a Sunday.
There is a place for everyone on God's Dream Team, and we need every able-bodied man, woman and teen who calls Liquid home to step up and serve! If you don't feel like you are good enough to serve, know that God has used the most unlikely people to turn the world upside down.... and God doesn't call the qualified, he qualifies the called! Will you share your gifts, talents and skills with the world? To explore options to serve and sign-up for a team, visit LiquidChurch.com/DreamTeam today!
