Service/Servanthood / Missions part II

This is part two of two of Bishop's Blog:

  • Missions is a call to service 
  • A missionary call; is it God’s will for you?
  • God delights to call his children in unique and personal way 
  • He doesn’t use a cookie-cutter template or a 10-step formula 
  • Calling is not a status to wear 
  • Responding to a call always requires doing 
  • October is World Mission Drive it is a tradition within the Church of God of Prophecy 
  • It has been said that Mission is in our DNA as a people -
  • COGOP is in 130 nations:

  • Africa 
  • Asia/Oceania 
  • Caribbean 
  • Central America/Mexico/Spain 
  • Europe/Middle East
  • North America 
  • South America 
  • Here COGOP Riverside this month Theme is also (Missions) 
  • We have a call for outreach in our community the next few months:
  • Homeless Outreach 
  • Mission Crusade 
  • Hallelujah Night 
  • Soul Harvest 
  • A call for reaching out to those who haven’t receive Christ as their personal Savior.

I pray that our Lord use us to be an instrument and a testimony for the lost. 

 When Jesus came near, he spoke to them. He said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations: Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Teach them to do everything I have commanded you. "And remember that I am always with you until the end of time."  Matthew 28:18-20
