Finish the Mission: Encouraging (and Challenging) Words from DG 2011

26 Sep

“When we get even a glimpse of the glory of God, we are wrecked.  And then God, in His grace, puts us back together, builds us up and puts us on mission.”-Louie Giglio

“There is no people group beyond the power of the Gospel.”-David Platt

“Whatever the Gospel is, it is not a plea for wishful thinking.”-Michael Ramsden

“Christ is the only one who could die because He was the only one who truly lived.”-Louie Giglio

“70% of missionaries are from the non-Western world.”-Michael Oh

“Don’t let your church be a cul-de-sac on the Great Commission highway.”-Ed Stetzer

“It is so easy for us to pray for these verses in the second half [of the Lord’s Prayer], skipping the first half. Too many of us have made the provision of God our purpose in life. Every gift of God is to be enjoyed as from God and not like a god.”-Michael Oh

“Because he is gracious he aims for all peoples to know him, because he is sovereign all peoples will know him.”-John Piper

“Does God hate sinners?  Yes, look at the cross.  Does God love sinners? Yes, look at the cross.”-David Platt

“The primary struggle most people have about the gospel in the Western world is moral. Most complaints about God are not his existence, but his moral character: Why is he not more obvious? Why is their suffering?…Is the Church just a group of comfortable people living convenient lives. The gospel is not convenient. It tells us to lay down our lives for other people…Is it possible that all we are interested in is ourselves? Is it possible that “our gospel” has left us so unmoved that we won’t go anywhere to do anything for anyone?”-Michael Ramsden

“Be missional, missions-minded, Gospel-centered, Spirit-empowered churches.  This promotes the name of God and glorifies Him.”-Ed Stetzer

“It means this at least: God gives his people material wealth for the sake of the world’s worship. He gives his people riches for the sake of reaching the nations. God gives us more money than we need so we can meet the world’s greatest need. It is more blessed to give than to receive. God made us that way. We don’t lose when they gain. Let the nations be glad in your doubled gladness because of their gladness.”-John Piper
