This week our teaching text will be Jeremiah 1:1-19, and weâ€™ll be talking about what it means that God has PREPARED us for His service! Have you ever thought of yourself as a prophet? Probably not, but as Godâ€™s followers we all have the responsibility and privilege of proclaiming the Gospel message! Biblical prophets didnâ€™t just predict future events, they also proclaimed Godâ€™s Word to people. And, that is exactly the charge that Jesus entrusted to us before He left this earth, â€œGo therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age !â€ Matthew 28:19-20 I love what St. Francis of Assisi said about the Great Commission. He added, â€œGo everywhere preachingâ€Ś And, if necessary, use words !â€ This Sunday weâ€™ll be looking at the fact that Godâ€™s Knowing us involves our Preparation for ministry.
