Sermons on Missions (Page 3)
For months God has been stirring up a common theme through CCA’s preachers and during our times of prayer; to believe Him for more than we can ask or imagine, to live as if His promises are true. At Grace Chapel they’ve had a similar experience, sensing a desire for more of the life Jesus has invited us to, more of His love, more of His Spirit. As Christ’s Church continues exploring a strategic partnership with Grace Chapel, we’re excited to present the…
Acts 17. When the Apostle Paul found himself in Athens he worked to understand the people and culture in order to more effectively share the gospel in that context, meeting them where they were. Dale Kuehne reminds us that we need to take the same approach as we bring the good news of Jesus to our communities.
Acts 16. Paul and Timothy are obedient to the Holy Spirit’s leading, yet they end up in prison. God calls all of us to follow even when we don’t have all the answers, even when the cost could be our very lives.
Acts 16. The Apostle Paul had a plan, but God had a different one. Because Paul was listening He was able to adapt to God’s plan. Dale Kuehne explores the application of this to our lives personally and collectively as we ask the question “What’s Next?”.

Revelation 1, Mark 5, 2 Corinthians 2, James 2. Elder John Owen explores the calling that followers of Jesus have to take an active role in reconciling people to God, and offers some helpful ways to think about and engage with those we have the opportunity to share Jesus with.
Acts 13-14. Dale Kuehne explores why the gentiles in Pisidian would have been so drawn to the message Paul shared. How can we share the gospel like that today?

Acts 13. Paul and Barnabas conducted themselves in such a way that almost entire city gathered to hear them. What will it take for us to reach the “whoie” city” where we reside?
Matthew 2 and Isaiah 49. Dr. Kuehne contrasts the sense of entitlement in our culture with the fact that God does not owe us anything. Yet in His grace, we see that He gave the gift of His Son not only to His people Israel, but to all the nations. We must continue to share that gift with others.
Luke 2, 14, 17, 19. Guest speaker Vicki Kardos speaks about Jesus’ acts of compassion and mercy towards the poor, unclean, “sinners” and socially outcast. As followers of Jesus we are called to the same mission and must beware of neglecting or shutting people out because of our judgements and lack of compassion.
Acts 10. God uses us to answer the prayers of others, but it requires obedience on our part, even when it’s uncomfortable or dangerous. Dale Kuehne explores this idea in the Apostle Peter’s life as well as in several modern day examples.
